Hyderabad, Jan 11 (UNI) Bharatiya Janata Party Vice-President M Venkaiah Naidu alleged that the Congress had lost its 'credibility' and had been reduced to a ''weakened'' political force in the country.
Addressing a press conference here, he said the Congress had to face electoral drubbing in six states -- Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Punjab, Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh -- after the Lok Sabha elections in 2004.
Alleging that the Congress had failed to take its allies into confidence, the BJP leader said the TRS, SP and MDMK had walked out of the UPA and the Communists were threatening to withdraw support.
He charged the Centre with failing to control the price rise of essential commodities and to initiate measures for the welfare of farmers.
The Party's National Executive meeting would be held on January 27 and the National Council on January 28 and 29 in New Delhi, he added.
