Days ahead of assembly polls in the state of Haryana, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday targeted Congress' party over its 'Party kaha gayi' jibe. Addressing a poll rally in Haryana's Hisar, the Prime Minister expressed his shock on seeing the viral video in which Congress leader Ahmed Patel taunted at Haryana Congress leader Bhupinder Singh Hooda saying "Party kaha gayi (where is the party)". He said that the party that has conceded defeat just before the elections can never do good to the state. He stated that Congress has failed.
PM Modi said: "What should I say about the condition of the Congress party. A video of their leaders went viral a few days ago. They were in the Parliament complex and they were making fun of their Haryana neta. And I was so shocked that the Haryana neta was pleading and the rest of the Congress leaders were kind of threatening him. You saw the video right? Will you tolerate this insult for Haryana? Will you tolerate this type of politics by Congress? he himself conceded defeat, he said its enough for them if they win only 12-14 seats. These tired and failed people, can they take Haryana to a new route? No."
Soon after his poll rally, PM Modi took to Twitter and reiterated his response. He said that the mood in his election rally favours BJP;s developmental policies. He added that people of Haryana has seen Congress' viral video. He used the crying and laughing smiley at the end of his tweet. Below is his tweet:

The mood on the ground favours the development oriented policies of BJP.

A video of Congress leaders went viral a few days ago, in which the leaders were chatting about the condition of the party in Haryana, after an internal tussle in the party. The video featured Congress'senior leader Ghulam Nabi Azad, Congress' interim president Sonia Gandhi's right-hand man Ahmed Patel, and Haryana Congress leader Bhupinder Singh Hooda. In the video, Hooda is asked by Azad about the expected performance of the party in upcoming assembly elections. As Hooda begins counting some numbers, Patel interrupts and asks for “approximate" figures. Hooda said “6, total 12”. As Patel hears the number, he adds that the maximum for the party might be 14. He then taunts saying: "Party kahan gayi? (Where has the party gone?)"
