A case has been registered against Rahul Gandhi n a Bihar court on Tuesday for addressing Pakistan-based terrorist group Jaish chief as "Masood Azhar ji", while attacking Prime Minister Modi, in a meeting with party workers in New Delhi.

To another question related to women's empowerment, he declared, "In 2019, we are going to pass the Women's Reservation bill, they will receive 33% reservation in jobs".

However, deep inside, he said, he felt affection for Modi and he thought Modi was angry "because he is not able to see the beauty of the world".

On bringing peace back in Jammu and Kashmir, he said the first step was to build the bridge to the people there. While she focussed her address on attacking the government's "unkept promises", the bigger question now is whether she can be the galvanising force the Congress party is seeking ahead of the national polls.

In yet another setback to India's bid to designate the Jaish-e-Mohammed's chief as a global terrorist, China Wednesday put a technical hold on the proposal in the UN Security Council to ban him following the Pulwama terror attack.

He criticized the central government for facilitating businessmen like Nirav Modi, Vijay Mallya and others to leave the country after defrauding the banks. "I will be the first person to say it. investigate Robert Vadra but also investigate Prime Minister Narendra Modi", he said.

"Law must apply to everybody, not be applied selectively".

Rahul and Priyanka Gandhi, the sibling descendants of India's founding leader Jawaharlal Nehru, likened their quest to defeat Modi to the country's pre-independence struggle against British rule. "How many times have you seen the Prime Minister of India like this, being open to any question from anybody?"

Gandhi maintained that he was still a young politician.
