Congress missed chance to behave as responsible Opposition: BJP | India News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: BJP on Monday said that Congress and its allies have not only lost people’s confidence but also missed the opportunity to behave as a responsible opposition as they have consistently tried to demean democratic institutions by casting aspersions on them.
At a press conference, party’s spokesperson Sudhanshu Trivedi said that the opposition parties had been acting at the behest of “external forces” which have been hell bent on weakening the spirit of the country’s democracy.
He said Congress and other opposition parties are raising “baseless” questions on the country’s election process to create “unrest” in society ahead of counting.
“On the lighter note, I would ask them not to consider the entire country a ‘pappu’. Don’t try to hoodwink the people of India. They are wise enough to understand that you are levelling these types of allegations to satisfy your ego like a despotic prince,” he charged.
“Wait for the results of the elections. Be ready to gracefully accept defeat, rather than demeaning the dignity of democracy,” he added.
Several exit polls on Saturday predicted that PM Modi would retain power for a third consecutive term with the BJP-led NDA expected to win a big majority in LS polls.
Congress termed their projections “bogus” and said they were a “deliberate attempt to justify rigging” of the elections and part of “psychological games” being played by Modi to lower the morale of INDIA bloc workers. Congress’s Rahul Gandhi dubbed the exit polls as “Modi media poll”.
Also a delegation of INDIA bloc comprising of Congress’ Abhishek Singhvi, approached the poll panel on Sunday and urged it to ensure that all the guidelines are followed on the counting day on June 4, including declaring the postal-ballot results before the outcome of the EVMs is announced.
Trivedi charged, “It is unfortunate. Elections keep happening and govts come and go. But questions should not be raised on the integrity of the democracy and democratic systems.”
BJP leader said the Congress and other constituents of INDIA bloc have gone “berserk” and raised questions on the electoral process sensing defeat.
