Addressing a public meeting at MP Inter College ground in favour of BJP candidate for mayoral post Anju Chaudhary, Sinha said Congress led Union government was passing through 'four-C' phenomenon -- contradiction, confrontation, corruption and lack of consent. Without naming anyone, he lambasted forces opposing the death penalty to the main accused in Parliament attack case.
Sinha said Union government and senior officials were issuing contradictory statements regarding the bomb blast in Mumbai.
