BJP President M Venkaiah Naidu on Tuesday said that naxalites would not achieve anything through violence and asked them to `adopt a democratic method to achieve their goals'.

Addressing an election meeting at Peddapalli near here, Naidu said it was proved beyond doubt that nothing could be achieved through violence except demolition of vital infrastructure and loss of innocent lives, which was `detrimental' to the country's progress.

Accusing Congress for the `chaos' in the country, Naidu said the party at present has no agenda and "many responsible people, who felt suffocated in the party and had been disputing the leadership of Sonia Gandhi, have joined BJP".

"This makes evident that the party affairs have become dynastic," he added.

On seat-sharing arrangement with TDP, he said BJP is contesting the Peddapalli Lok Sabha and assembly segment.

Appealing to people to vote for BJP, Naidu said under the leadership of Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee, India will be freed from poverty in the coming years.
