All India Congress Committee (AICC) secretary S. Thirunavakkarasar has termed the recent statement of Narendra Modi favouring ‘toilets over temples’ as a desperate attempt to get out of the image he developed in the minds of people following the Godhra incident. “It is only a drama by Modi, who everyone knows is a Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh’s (RSS) Prime Ministerial candidate, considering that many Hindu/ Sangh outfits were heavily criticising Union Minister Jairam Ramesh for making a similar statement sometime ago,” he told media persons here on Sunday evening.

He claimed that BJP would be suffering a huge setback in the coming Lok Sabha elections just because Narendra Modi was projected as the party’s PM candidate.
