Bangalore, Dec 29 (UNI) Senior Congress leader Janardhan Poojary today blamed his own party leaders for party's defeat in the hands of BJP in the recent assembly polls in Gujarat.
Speaking to reporters here he said the reason for the defeat of the party was purely because of the failure of the leaders in that state as they did not match the leadership of Mr Narendra Modi, who won the elections for the BJP for third time in a row.
"The poll outcome came in favour of 'Moditwa' or 'terrorism' of Mr Modi and not in favour of Hindutwa of BJP. Former Chief Minister B S Yeddiyurappa is unaware of these facts," he said.
Criticising the administration of Mr Modi for promoting terrorism and creating a communal disharmony in the state, he said that BJPs dream of repeating its victory of Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh by its leaders would not be realised as in Karnataka as the situation was totally different.
The people of Karnataka were peace-loving and they would not vote to a party that stood for terrorism in the state, he alleged.
To a question on Janata Dal(S), he said the electoral fight would be with BJP and Congress would certainly win the coming assembly elections.
