New Delhi, May 11 (UNI) Reacting to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh hailing victories of 'secular forces' in Kerala and West Bengal, the BJP today said it was a candid confession that Congress was a 'communal force' in these states.

Commenting on Dr Singh's statement which described the poll results as 'magnificent victory for secular forces', the BJP said it is indeed a heartening that the PM had owned that his Congress Party was a 'communal force' because it was the 'principal adversary' of the Left Front in Kerala and West Bengal. "We are not surprised over the PM's statement", BJP Parliamentary party spokseman V K Malhotra told UNI.

''We are of the view the Congress is a communal party having alliance with fundamentalist forces like Muslim League whenever it suited them. Today it is gratifying to note that he (Dr Singh) has acknowledged his party's true colours,'' he said.
