Congress on Saturday claimed that Narendra Modi's campaign would soon peak as he has nothing new to say and keeps making 'mistakes'.

 
"He (Modi) does not have anything new to say and if he doesn't have anything new to say, he keeps making mistakes again and again, giving out some wrong figures and facts which are totally different from reality.
 
"So, I don't think that this is going to continue for long," AICC Communication Department Chairman Ajay Maken said here.
 
While speaking at the Mail Today Realty Conclave, Maken said that people expect something new every time from a political leader.
 
"People don't expect you to keep on saying the same things again and again," he said.
 
In the ensuing assembly elections to five states, Modi has been addressing up to three rallies a day.
 
Asked if the Congress is running behind BJP on tapping social media network, he said, "we have started late and we are catching up with them."  On the emergence of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), Maken said, they will not be able to win any seat in the forthcoming Delhi elections though they may cut into votes of parties.
 
"May be they will not be able to open their account also for the first time...they may get votes, they may cut into votes but as far as seats are concerned, I don't see any seats taken by them in Delhi," he said.
 
Drawing analogy, he said, last time Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) did cut into votes, but failed to have an impact.
 
"They (AAP) are just replacing BSP in terms of percentage of votes," he said.
 
On the issue of change in guard in Delhi, he said it is up to the incumbent chief minister Sheila Dikshit to decide.
 
"I think that when we are fighting these elections under the leadership of Dikshit and she is our chief ministerial candidate, she is the best person to decide on that.
 
"It is on Dikshit to decide whether to continue or not and if to be replaced, they all have to take a decision," he said.
 
"My opinion is that she has performed so well in last 15 years and it is on her performance that we are seeking votes for election," he added.
