Leaders of various opposition parties Friday called upon people to wipe out the Congress in the 2014 general elections.
Addressing a public rally here, organised by the Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) to observe the 100th birth anniversary of former deputy prime minister Devi Lal, the leaders blamed the Congress for the present mess in the country, especially on corruption, lack of policy and deteriorating law and order.
Those who attended included Punjab Chief Minister and Shiromani Akali Dal patron Parkash Singh Badal, former Assam chief minister Prafulla Kumar Mahanta, Bharatiya Janata Party leader Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi and INLD leader Abhay Chautala. Telegu Desam Party leader N. Chandrababu Naidu could not reach but his party leaders were present.
Badal said the Congress was responsible for rampant corruption and lack of development in the country. He urged people to vote out the Congress in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections.
Naqvi said the Congress leadership was misleading the country on all fronts.
