Congress President Sonia Gandhi today said the BJP was not in a position to take any decision on any issue without seeking directions from Sangh Parivar including the RSS.

Gandhi made the remark at an election rally here in her continuing tirade against the saffron party, whose leader L K Advani has repeatedly been taunting Manmohan Singh as the 'weakest Prime Minister'.

Campaigning in favour of Dakshina Kannada candidate B Janardhan Poojary, Sonia urged the people to vote for Congress if they wanted a development-oriented, stable and strong government at the Centre.

She claimed that the UPA government, under the leadership of Manmohan Singh, had fulfilled most of its promises made in the manifesto during its five-year tenure and would further carry out its role in facing many challenges.

The Congress is also committed to root out terrorism in the country, she said.

On the BJP's charge that about Rs 25 lakh crore had been stashed away by Indian nationals in secret Swiss accounts and tax havens, the UPA chairperson said the government had taken steps to get the money back.

During her 13 minutes speech in Hindi, she also targeted the BJP government in Karnataka, alleging that it had neglected all development programmes and was misusing public money.
