PTI, BENGALURU:  Hitting back at Rahul Gandhi a day after he accused BJP of spreading hatred, Union Home Minister Rajanth Singh today said it was his party which has been trying to douse the fire "lit by Congress" on issues such as Kashmir and communal tensions.

Addressing a BJP rally here, he also accused the Congress government in Karnataka of trying to 'divide' the society and lashed out at it on the law-and-order front, citing the killings of right-wing activists and journalist Gauri Lankesh.

The senior BJP leader posed several questions to Rahul Gandhi, who made the charge after being handed over the baton by his mother Sonia Gandhi yesterday to take over as the Congress president, heralding a generational change.

Singh said: "Congress has got a new president. I congratulate him. He says that BJP is responsible for the unrest in the country. I want to ask him who is behind the conmunal tensions, terrorism, Naxalism and unrest in Kashmir?

"Who is behind the dynastic politics in the country? Let Rahul Gandhi know that it is BJP which is trying to douse the fire lit by Congress," Singh said.

He also said the "whole world knew that the BJP alone knows how to run the nation. The Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh election results (tomorrow) will prove it again. Already exit polls have predicted that we are going to form the government in these two states," he said.

In his first speech to party workers after formally assuming charge as Congress president, Rahul Gandhi had said: "They break, we unite. They ignite fire, we douse it. They get angry, we love. This is the difference between them and us."
