Congress uses ‘desperate language’ to skirt real issues: Kohli

 

SHILLONG: BJP national spokesperson Nalin Kohli hit out at the “Judas in operation” jibe about the parties supporting BJP as a “desperate language” of the Congress.

 

Addressing reporters on Tuesday at the BJP office, Kohli said, “19 governments of the BJP are there in the country whether single or in coalition. Does that mean they are surrendering and surrendering for what? Have they sold their soul to the devil? Is that what they mean?”

 

“Why is the Congress party running away from answering the specific charges in the chargesheet?

Congress is communalising the elections. We don’t believe in communalising elections. Congress is running away from its shameful track record,” he added.

 

He added that the Congress party was unable to answer charges of the scams brought against it and ridiculed the Congress by saying that the party needs serious help.

 

“The language of ‘surrender, sell their bodies’…. this kind of language shows the desperation and panic in the Congress party,” he said adding that the people are not fooled by the use of negative language by the Congress.

 

Speaking of the links with the Holy Bible, Kohli, and “If Alphons was here, we could have asked him to quote the Bible properly and tell him (AICC national spokesman Tom Vaddakan) how wrong he is.”

Meanwhile, chairman of the campaign committee, AL Hek and BJP candidate from Pynthorumkhrah said, “Talking about surrendering of souls …..   Such language is not conducive and not welcome in political arena or scenario.”

 

Pakora politics

 

Commenting on the much heated debate of “pakoda politics” Kohli said that pakoda (fritters) sellers are much better than people behind corruption.

 

 “Those who are self-employed even as street vendors, even selling pakodas and making an honest living for themselves and families are far better than those who are scam-tainted, middlemen of corruption,” he said.

 

Kohli went on to allege that Congress leadership knows very well about the business model as scams after scams happen in the state and the national level.

 

Law and order is not proper in Meghalaya: Shibun

 

As the election season heats up in the state, state BJP president Shibun Lyngdoh expressed concern on the law and order scenario in the poll season.

 

“There is a fight in Raliang constituency where the party filed an FIR but no action has been taken against the brother of UDP candidate. Some say there is a nexus between BJP-NPP-UDP but you can see here that we are fighting all alone where even our karyakartas were attacked,” he said.

 

 “Law and order is not proper in Meghalaya,” he said, while recalling alleged poll violence at Sutnga-Saipung, the recovery of grenade from West Shillong constituency etc.
