New Delhi: Minister without portfolio Arun Jaitley, who is recuperating after a kidney transplant, came up with yet another Facebook post slamming the "ideology-less" Congress under Rahul Gandhi.

Jaitley listed several statements by Rahul Gandhi to claim that there was "no ideological pattern" and stressed that "ignorance with anti-Modism is a common thread" in the attacks launched by the Congress president.

"Dynastic political parties are family and personality dominated. Ideology takes a back seat... The leader's ill-informed instincts become the ideology. This can only happen to a party which becomes ideology-less; pushes itself to the fringe; is willing to act as a tailender to regional parties. All this because its only obsession is a person called Narendra Modi," Jaitley said.

Jaitley, who has been forced to keep off active politics as he recuperates after a kidney transplant, has launched attacks on the Congress on Facebook earlier too.
