The Congress upped the ante in this bitterly fought election Friday, when it complained to the Election Commission against Narendra Modi for filing incorrect affidavits. The move came hours after its leader Rahul Gandhi launched a rare personal attack on the BJP prime ministerial candidate for hiding his marital status. The Congress, which opinion polls and pundits say is heading for a big defeat, has been also been criticized for putting up a weak defense against the BJP and Modi's personal onslaughts, both against the UPA government as well as its key personalities, particularly Rahul Gandhi.
