Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday called the Congress a "vote-katwa (vote splitter) party" that will soon witness its "downfall".

"See its downfall," he said, as he made a no-holds barred attack against party president Rahul Gandhi, warning him that he will succumb to "ahankaar" (self pride).

Modi said while a Congress leader is sharing the stage with the Samajwadi Party, an apparent reference to Priyanka Gandhi who was present at an Samajwadi meeting in Rae Bareli this week, the BSP is attacking the Congress.

"The SP is going soft on the Congress, but its alliance partner, BSP chief Mayawati, is attacking the grand old party," he said at an election meeting in Pratapgarh.

Attacking the Congress, Modi said the "Mr Clean" Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi became "corrupt number one".

He also recalled how the Congress had withdrawn support from governments at the Centre in the past leading to political instability.

"Only the BJP can give a stable government," he said, as he led the gathering chanting "phir ek baar ...Modi sarkar (once again, Modi government)".
