Accusing the Congress of following a divisive agenda, the BJP on Friday said that the party is facing a leadership crisis.

"At the national level in over seven years, the UPA government has nothing much to offer...there is a leadership crisis...decision making is not at its place...Congress is following divisive agenda," Leader of opposition in Rajya Sabha Arun Jaitley told reporters here.

The allegations of corruption are unprecedented in the UPA regime, he said, adding that the leadership in the Congress had lost its credibility.

The Congress will pay a huge price for its divisive agenda in the ensuing Assembly polls in the five states, he said.

"In Uttar Pardesh, the Congress is trying to implement a divisive (quota within quota) agenda for which the society will have to pay a lot," he said.

He said that the BJP was openly opposing the divisive agenda of Congress, whereas the SP and BSP were not coming in open against it.

"The policy of sub-quota by Congress is for its vested interests," he said, adding that the BJP would not allow the Congress to implement its divisive agenda.

On the issue of Batla house encounter in Delhi, he said that it was an excellent performance of intelligence which broke the backbone of Indian Mujhaedeen.

However, the Congress is double tounged on the issue like many other issues, he said referring to the stand of home minister P Chidambaram and Congress general secretary Digvijaya Singh on the three-year old encounter.

"The strategy of the Congress is UPA Chairperson (Sonia Gandhi) will keep quiet and party's general secretary (Digvijaya Singh) will do questioning on important issues which hurts the country," he said.

On the issue of visit by controversial writer Salman Rushdie, he said that the BJP was not opposed to his entry in the country.

He also lashed out at the functioning of the CBI and said that it had lost its credibility.
