NDA means Naidu/Nitish Dependent Alliance: Congress

New Delhi, June 7 (UNI) Mocking the National Democratic Alliance as ‘Naidu Dependent Alliance or Nitish Dependent Alliance’ the Congress on Friday said the ‘Modi guarantee’ is now gone and it remains to be seen for how long the new NDA government survives.

Addressing a press conference at the AICC headquarters here, party spokesperson Pawan Khera said Modi did not take the name of NDA in the last 10 years but only used the word “Modi’s guarantee”. But the people’s mandate has now forced him to say ‘NDA’s guarantee’.

Stating that the people of Uttar Pradesh and Maharashtra gave a befitting reply to the BJP, Khera said, “The BJP could not win a seat in Ayodhya. Leave Ayodhya, the party could not win any seats in the nearby areas and after losing they are now abusing the people of Ayodhya.

“Even Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s winning margin was reduced to just one lakh fifty two thousand votes only, Whereas our leader Rahul Gandhi won from Rae Bareli by a margin of 390030 votes and another leader KL Sharma won the Amethi seat by a margin of 167196 votes which were more than Modi’s margin. Similarly, in Maharashtra, the BJP performed pathetically,” said Khera.

Khera also slammed the BJP government for removing the statues of Mahatma Gandhi, Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj and BR Ambedkar from the Parliament premises and questioned the intention behind such a decision.

He said, “The poor performance by the BJP in the just concluded Lok Sabha election had left the party frustrated and it is now venting its anger on Mahatma Gandhi, Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj and BR Ambedkar by removing the statues from the Parliament premises”.

“Vent your anger on us which you have been doing for the last 10 years, we will fight,” Khera said.

To a query about the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) deciding to go solo in future elections, the Congress spokesperson said the arrangement was for the Lok Sabha election only and this was made clear when the alliance was formed.

When asked whether the AAP will remain a part of the INDI alliance, the Congress leader said the question should be put to them (AAP).
