Defence Minister Rajnath Singh on March 28 took a pot shot at Congress leader Rahul Gandhi's sea dive in Kerala during campaigning, by saying that he sinks others with himself. Singh added that Rahul's track record is not good, highlighting his defeat in Uttar Pradesh's Amethi during 2019 Lok Sabha polls.

Union Minister Smirti Irani trained guns at Congress leader Rahul Gandhi and on his Kerala visit said, the Congress leader "seeks to create a divide between north and south India." She said, "The spiteful and vengeful politics of Rahul Gandhi which insults not only the people and voters of Amethi but seeks to create a divide between the north and south India is to be condemned by every Indian citizen. This is not the first time he has done so. How long will he continue to lie to the people of our country? How long will he seek to divide the people of our country?" On Rahul Gandhi's 'promise' of "Ministry of fisheries" to people of Kerala, Smriti Irani said, "The fact that Rahul Gandhi sustains a lie was evident when he again promised the people in Kerala for Ministry for fisheries. The fact that he insults the people of Kerala by speaking a lie time and again and it is something that the citizens of Kerala need to take note of. He was made available data with regards to Ministry for fisheries. So, did he lie to Parliament or he's propagating a lie now?"
