Patna: Slamming the Congress as an
`anti-national` and `anti-people` political party, besides
being an epitome of `corruption`, the veteran socialist leader
Bhola Singh on Tuesday urged the non-Congress political parties to
join forces to throw out the former from power at the Centre.
"The Congress party has proved to be a national
disaster due to its inability to deal with issues like
corruption, black money and lack of transparency in public
life and attempt to muzzle dissenting voices as was the case
with the yoga guru Ramdev," he told reporters here.
Other than its failure on the governance-related
issues, the Congress party has created a communal wedge
between the Hindus and Muslims and reaped votes from both
communities to prolong its stay in power, Singh said.
Stating that Ramdev`s crusade against corruption
and blackmoney was the Sangh Parivar`s mechanism to
destabilise the UPA government and was a classic example of
the Congress`s `divide and rule` agenda.
It was time that all non-Congress political parties
should join forces and throw out the Congress from power, the
social leader, who is also the vice-president of Bihar Rajya
Nagrik Parishad, said, adding that the non-Congress parties
will be rendering their greatest service to the nation if they
Singh, who is also a senior JD(U) leader said that he
would write to the top leaders of all political parties to
work together to remove Congress from power at the Centre.
