Stating that people of the country have rejected the policy of "arrogance, dynasty and inheritance", BJP on Monday advised the Congress to "reconcile" itself to sit in the opposition.


Four days ahead of counting of votes for Lok Sabha election, BJP on Monday lauded the voters of the country for coming out in large numbers to elect a "stable, effective and decisive" government.

"This is an election of hope and not of emotion. The policy of arrogance, dynasty and inheritance is being rejected by the people of India and the politics of initiative, hard work and accomplishments based upon the record of good governance is being rewarded by the people," BJP leader Ravi Shankar Prasad said.

Giving "unsolicited advice" to the Congress party, he said, "Dynasty cannot deliver victory. The Congress should understand. Please reconcile yourself to be in opposition, otherwise you will face difficulties." In a veiled attack on the Nehru-Gandhi family, Prasad said, "You can't flaunt your inheritance and achievements of your forefathers attained 20 to 30 years ago. People are asking questions on what you have to comment on the present."

Taking a swipe at Bihar CM Nitish Kumar, he said his "hidden desire" for the prime minister's post will remain and claimed he has been "marginalised" in this election. He said questions are being raised on JD(U)'s poor performance.
