Kolkata, Jun 10: The "Congress brand of politics" has been defeated in the recent Assembly elections which also has proved that the country's new slogan is "Congress free India", BJP national general secretary Ram Madhav today said.
"In the recent Assembly elections, BJP has fared well. It has formed a government for the first time in Assam, it has done well in West Bengal. But the people of our country have given a resounding verdict," Madhav said at a programme here.
"The resounding verdict is total rejection of Congress by the people. Before Lok Sabha elections (Narendra) Modiji had given a call for Congress free India. Now it seems it has become the slogan of the entire country," Madhav said.
"Till the Congress has its present leaders, they themselves will lose elections. But the real meaning of Congress free India is defeating the Congress' brand of politics, which symbolises corruption, policy paralysis, appeasement and dynasty politics," he said.
The senior BJP leader also took a dig at the CPI(M) in West Bengal, who had forged an alliance with Congress.
"Even the allies who have fought with Congress have been washed away. Those who have pursued the politics of duplicity have also suffered. The politics of alliance in Bengal and fight in Kerala has backfired," Madahav said.
Madhav also had a word of caution for Trinamool Congress, which has allegedly engaged in post poll violence.
"Why this violence in politics? If you are in politics, fight us politically. If TMC tries to bring in the culture of Congress, it won't take much of time to change the slogan from Congress free India to TMC free India," Madhav said.
