Cong afflicted with despondency, defeatism: BJP

Stating that Congress is afflicted with the feeling of despondency and defeatism, BJP on Saturday said that Congress has now started praising those parties which are arch-rivals of its own allies.

"Rahul Gandhi is praising the work of Nitish Kumar government in Bihar despite the fact that Lalu Prasad Yadav's RJD is an ally of Congress. Other Congress leaders are luring Left parties despite having Mamata Banerjee as their ally in West Bengal," BJP's national spokesman Ravishankar Prasad told reporters at party headquarters here.

"In Tamil Nadu, they want to bring AIADMK with them despite DMK being the part of UPA," Prasad said.

This behaviour of Congress leaders clearly shows that the party is afflicted with the feeling of despondency, pessimism and defeatism, he said.

Prasad said the feeling is evident in the fact that the party has dismissed its media cell chief Veerappa Moily for making a statement that if Nitish Kumar wanted to waste his time with communal parties, then nobody can help him.
