Guwahati: In a sharp dig at the Congress party, BJP national general secretary Ram Madhav on Sunday said that they (Congress) might win an election in Pakistan if it contests from there as the opposition party “banks on lies” and the neighbouring country itself.

Addressing a press conference in Guwahati, Madhav said that the statements made by Congress leaders are often retweeted by people of Pakistan.

“Their comments are more retweeted and publicised by the people of the neighbouring country than our own. The Congress might win an election in Pakistan if it contests from there. This is the condition of our main opposition party,” the BJP leader said.

“The Congress does not have any issue to really take on our government, our leader and our party. It is banking on lies and Pakistan,” the BJP leader added.

Pointing that the Congress is fighting a “clueless battle”, Madhav said “Nobody in the country is understanding what it wants to say and in which direction it wants to take the country. The people are also not understanding if the Congress is fighting for India or Pakistan.”

Alleging that the Congress leaders are “doubting” the credentials of the Indian Army, Ram Madhav also added that the opposition party is not only questioning the success of the BJP-led government, but also making “derogatory remarks” about the Army.

When asked about the allegation of former Karnataka chief minister BS Yeddyurappa paying a bribe of Rs 1,800 crore to top BJP leaders, Madhav said, “It is bogus news…The Congress has no issue today to confront us and it is only banking on lies.”
