Congress is Gandhi's party while BJP is Godse's party: Rahul Gandhi
Addressing an election rally in Unnao Rahul Gandhi has stated that the Congress party is a party interested in national integration and welfare of all the sections of society and is in fact Gandhi's party while BJP has divisive agenda and is Godse's party; Godse being Gandhi's killer.

However, although Gandhi has been associated with the Congress, he wanted it to be disbanded after Independence. Moreover, Gandhism died the day Gandhi died for while Gandhi was a supporter of Capitalism and opined that Capitalists are the trustees of public money and spend it for the welfare of the people, Nehru who became the Prime Minister of India after Independence, opted for socialistic pattern of society on the Soviet pattern.

While Gandhi wanted decentralisation of power, Nehru stood for centralisation of power. Gandhi wanted to develop small scale and cottage industries while Nehru went for bigger industries for rapid development. Gandhi wanted every village to become a republic self sufficient in itself but Nehru did not want so and so urban slums dwell as people came to the cities to find employment in big industries.

Gandhi wanted Ram Rajya but Nehru was an agnostic. From all this, it can be safely deduced that the present Congress party which is Nehruvian in nature, is not Gandhi's party and Rahul Gandhi is saying incorrect things. As for BJP being Godse's party, it is too preposterous to be replied to.

However, it may be stated that BJP and even its predecessor Jan Sangh were not in existence at the time of Godse. Actually, Godse belonged to Hindu Maha Sabha but it appears that he has acted on his own in killing Gandhi with of course Apte abetting him as per Court's finding.
