In a veiled attack on Congress leader Sonia Gandhi, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday said those who cannot win elections have "fled the field" and have come to Rajya Sabha from Rajasthan.

Addressing an election rally in Rajasthan's Jalore, Modi said the country is punishing the Congress for its "sins" and the party that had once won 400 seats is unable to find candidates to contest 300 seats in this Lok Sabha election.

"Those who cannot contest election and cannot win it have fled the field. This time, they have come to Rajya Sabha from Rajasthan. The condition of the Congress is so bad," Modi said.

Former Congress president Sonia Gandhi is among the MPs elected to Rajya Sabha from Rajasthan in February. Several Congress veterans have not been fielded in this Lok Sabha election, but the party has rejected suggestions that they were shying away from contesting.

"In the first phase of voting, half of Rajasthan has punished the Congress. Rajasthan, which is full of patriotism, knows that the Congress can never make India strong," Modi said.

He said the country does not want the conditions which existed before 2014 to return.

"The Congress has hollowed out the country by spreading termites of nepotism and corruption. And today, the country is angry with the Congress and is punishing it for these sins. The youth is so angry that they do not want to see the Congress' face again."        

Modi was addressing the public meeting in Bhinmal in support of BJP candidate Lumbaram Chaudhary.

"The Congress has itself to blame for its present condition...The party that had once won 400 seats is unable to contest 300 seats on its own. Today, the condition of Congress is such that it is unable to find candidates.

"They have formed an opportunistic INDI Alliance, (it is like) a kite whose string has been cut before it could fly," he said.

Modi said it was an alliance only in name as its constituents were fighting against each other in many states.
