BJP is rattled by recent Delhi University results: Congress


The Congress party has upped the ante in its effort to challenge Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) before the assembly elections due later this week. The Congress Party on Monday said BJP is "rattled" with Congress' recent victory in the Delhi University. "BJP is already rattled with the kind of results that are coming out of universities," Congress spokesperson Tom Vadakkan told ANI.

Congress top leaders have been raising the issue of "lack of job creation" and "growing intolerance" in the country. Now, it appears the party had decided to drum up its efforts to put the Narendra Modi government on the backfoot. 

Vadakkan added that 2019 is not too far saying that BJP's preparation is missing."You can't sustain propaganda without action, planned at the ground and when you fail on the economic front, have not delivered the job you have talked about, the black money has not arrived, these become very serious issues, and people are going to ask you questions and you will have to answer them."

He said that promises have not been delivered and BJP has to now set its agenda to tell people why it was so.

Speaking of the upcoming Gujarat elections and the preparations, Congress leader Shakeel Ahmad said that people of India have uneasiness towards BJP.

"One reason for that is demonetisation, then unemployment, and problems created by Goods and Services Tax (GST) and because of this people are pretty upset with Prime Minister Narendra Modi, which is visible quite openly," he told ANI.

He said that Congress party's performance amidst all this will be very good and they will create the government.

"Ahmed Patel's win was the start of PM Modi's and Amit Shah's losing in public," Ahmad said.

The assembly elections in Gujarat, at the end of the year, or the beginning of the next year, are already creating a buzz among the people.

Meanwhile, BJP, with its thirteen Chief Ministers, 1400 legislators, 280 Parliamentarians - in all around 2,500 delegates, will be holding a National Executive committee meeting at Delhi's Talkatora Stadium on Monday.

Chaired by BJP National President Amit Shah, the day-long session will be the first-ever televised National Executive meet.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is slated to deliver a speech that might shape the political discourse in the run-up to the winter session of Parliament, and assembly polls in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh.

With election season around the corner, preparations for the upcoming state polls and the 2019 general election will be part of the agenda.

The meeting will focus on arming the delegates with an array of arguments against the critics of the government's economic policy.

The meeting will also serve as the closing ceremony of Pt. Deendayal Upadhyaya birth centenary programme.

On Sunday, the party began the two-day event with an internal meeting to finalise the programme.
