Congress a sinking ship: BJP


Dehradun, May 19: With BJP registering a historic win in Assam and widening its base in other states, its Uttarakhand president Ajay Bhatt on Thursday (May 19) said the party is fast moving towards its objective of building a Congress-free India.

"BJP's impressive victory in Assam and its widening support base in other states is an indication that people's confidence in the policies and leadership of the BJP is increasing. "The rout of the Congress in all the states on the other hand makes it clear that we have moved closer to our goal of a Congress-free India.


Its base is shrinking up and people are rejecting it all over the country," Bhatt said in a statement. Describing Congress as "a sinking ship", Bhatt, who is also the Leader of Opposition in the state assembly, said the few good people still on board the vessel must think how long they will stay on.

"Congress is a sinking ship and a few good people who are yet to leave it must rethink," the BJP leader said. Predicting a similar fate for Congress in Uttarakhand assembly polls due early next year, Bhatt said people of the state want to get rid of a government under which corruption and loot are flourishing.

"People of the state will soon create a Congress-free Uttarakhand," he said and also asked party workers to dedicate themselves to the task.
