Congress pushed country into ditch: IAC



New Delhi: Arvind Kejriwal-led India Against Corruption (IAC) today alleged that Congress pushed the country into a ditch but is now making a hue and cry about saving the nation.

Senior IAC leader Manish Sisodia alleged those who were sent to Parliament to serve the country were "actually selling" it.

"They don't do anything in Parliament but is making a hue and cry in Ramlila Maidan," he said, referring to the Congress rally here in support of FDI in multi-brand retail.

Referring to the speeches of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Congress chief Sonia Gandhi, he said Congress has pushed the country into a ditch.

"You were in power for eight years. Instead of saving the country, you destroyed it," he said.

Janata Party president Subramanian Swamy tweeted, "what a flop show...The speeches were disastrous. Most of all there was no enthusiasm in the crowd. Rent a crowd."
