Guwahati: BJP on Thursday described the ruling
Congress in Assam and the Centre as a "shrinking ship of
corruption" from which party MPs and legislators wanted to be
bailed out.

"The Congress both in the Centre and the state is a
shrinking ship of corruption from which the MPs and
legislators of the the party want to come out", BJP national
vice-president Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi told reporters here.

He said the Congress in Assam is "in the `ICU`
(Infiltration-Corruption-Unemployment) and they seriously
want a doctor to cure them of the severe ailment."

Claiming that BJP was the only alternative for the
people of Assam, he said their poll promise would be good
governance and corruption free administration.

"We will ensure security and stability of law and
order situation in the state if voted to power."

Alleging that more than 80 per cent of the fund
alloted by the Centre had been "swindled", the BJP leader
demanded a probe into the issue.

Ruling out any post-poll alliance, Naqvi claimed that
according to an internal report, his party will win atleast 78
of the 126 seats and form the government in Assam of its own.
