New Delhi: Congress today took a dig at the
BJP claiming that it has several "squabbling" Chief Ministers-
in-waiting in Uttar Pradesh despite it "disappearing" from the
landscape of the politically most crucial state.
"The BJP used to be a squabbling group at the centre with
more than one PM-in-waiting. It has now been reduced in UP to
the smallest possible squabbling group of many CMs-in-
waiting," party spokesman Abhishek Singhvi said at the AICC
He also claimed that the BJP was "close to vanishing
point" in poll-bound states in the North- Uttar Pradesh as
well as Uttarakhand where it is in power and in Punjab where
it is an ally of the ruling Akali Dal.
In spite of the fact that no one was talking
of BJP as having either first, second or third slot in Uttar
Pradesh, it was still having "squabbling" among leaders over
the Chief Ministership, Singhvi said, adding that the party
was "disappearing" in U P.
He said in Uttarakhand, people are asking again and again
as to how the same party can seek their vote when on its own
admission they have changed their Chief Minister on the
grounds of "mis-governance and corruption."
Singhvi claimed in Punjab the people are fearful of
touching the BJP with the bargepole because "it is the kiss of
death if the BJP supports you in Punjab."
"In Punjab even the allies of the BJP are fearful that
while self destructing themselves, the BJP will also destroy
the allies," he remarked.
