Patna: Buoyed by NDA's resounding victory in the Bihar Assembly polls, BJP President Nitin Gadkari on Saturday asked party workers to replicate their performance in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections and bring the alliance back to power.

"The Bihar verdict has given a new direction to national politics by rewarding performers (NDA government) against inefficient and dynastic parties like the RJD-LJP combine and the Congress," he said at a function to felicitate party workers.

Dedicating the BJP's best ever electoral results to the cadres, Gadkari urged them to maintain their untiring efforts to bring back the NDA to power at the Centre in the 2014 Parliamentary polls, which he claimed, could be held even earlier due to the prevailing resentment against it on account of issues like corruption and inflation.

Stating that the NDA has emerged as a credible and only alternative to the UPA government by dint of its performance in the Bihar polls, the BJP President expressed the hope that party cadres would stay focused to achieve the larger goal of attaining power at the Centre.

Leader of the Opposition in the Rajya Sabha Arun Jaitley too claimed that the NDA has gained in credibility as the only viable alternative at the Centre and urged party workers to prepare themselves to catapult the NDA to power.

Lambasting the UPA government and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in particular, for the handling of black money, scams, appointment of CVC, insurgency and terrorism, he said Congress was on a downhill journey and lacked credibility to rule.

Under the circumstances, the NDA was the only alternative to rule the country, Jaitley said and asked party workers to remain steadfast in their efforts to bring back the BJP-led coalition to power at the Centre.
