Accusing the BJP of creating "difficulties and unnecessary hurdles", Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Monday said that the UPA should stay in power long enough to make a visible impact.
"We have begun well. We have given an enviable start despite the difficulties and unnecessary hurdles raised by our opponents. The important thing is to keep to this course," he said while addressing the Congress plenary session.
He also offered some encouragement by saying that the country's farmers, workers, weavers, labourers, and minorities like dalits and tribals, have a very bright future.
"I believe this is possible. I believe that with hard work, determination, selflessness and commitment, we are on the verge of creating a new India," he said.
"Our Government will work hard to redeem our pledge to our people and to our party," he assured the 12,000 odd Congress workers gathered at the occasion.
