Jaipur, Oct 6 (UNI) The Congress today said it was prepared to take on aggressively BJP during campaign in Assembly polls in some states including Rajasthan later this year and Lok Sabha polls next year and held that the saffron party was in want of effective issues to face it.
The Party Media Department Chairman former Karnataka Chief Minister M Veerappa Moily said," We are prepared well with facts and data to expose BJP's double speak on all sensitive issues including its communal card on Ram Temple, Ramsethu, Amarnath and Inflation." Mr Moily said the saffron party was not in a position to dock the Congress and win elections on any of the national issue or regional or state level issues as his party was well prepared to retaliate any of the rivals's onslaught during the campaigning.
Mr Moily said the BJP wanted to make Ramsethu, Amarnath or inflation as poll issues against us, but the UPA Government's due handling of the issues and appreciable performance had already defused these issues.
Former Karnataka Chief Ministe who came here to address a workshop for the party's state and district level spokespersons and others who are dealing with the media, said besides exposing the BJP the Congressmen would go to people to highlight benefits of the NREGS, Farmers' Loan waiver and Indo-US Nuke deal being persuaded by the Congress led UPA Government at the Centre.
Besides this, BJP led state governments' "bad governance" in different states would also be talked about, he said.
The saffron party led governments in Rajasthan, Karnataka and its supported government in Orissa have emerged as a symbol of bad governance, he added.
He said the situation in Karnataka and Orissa was so worse that in the wake of communal violence the Centre was forced to issue them official warning under Article 355 of the Constitution.
Earlier, Mr Moily also spoke at the workshop calling upon the state and district media cells activists to expose the failures of BJP and UPA's achievement on NREGS, loan waiver, and the Nuke deal.
Union Minister Ashwini Kumar, former Rajasthan Chief Minister AICC General Secretary Ashok Gehlot, party MP Sachin Pilot, state president CP Joshi and several others also spoke at the workshop.
