Pointing out that the sari episode in Lucknow blemished the BJPs "feel good factor" and India shining campaign as it highlighted the alarming poverty in the country, AICC member and MP Natwar Singh has said that the "increasing confidence" of the Congress has left the BJP in confusion.

The 14th Lok Sabha polls will decide if India is heading towards secularism or divisive communal temperament, Singh said addressing a press conference here last evening.

"A change is visible in the rhetoric of BJP leaders lately. The confidence which was once discernible is not visible anymore," he said.

The veteran Congress leader said that Prime Minister A B Vajpayee has been changing his speeches to suit the developing political situations and his personal mood.

The former foreign minister alleged that the NDA government was not clear about the policy to be adopted against Pakistan as the Prime Minister sometimes talked of aar par ki larai and on other occasions wanted to strengthen relations.

On the Congress party's Assembly defeat in Rajasthan last year, Singh said the political situation was a melting pot and the party workers and leaders have learned from the defeat.
