New Delhi, March 20: The BJP on Sunday mocked the Congress, saying the party has reduced itself as “a tail-ender” to regiol outfits in states like Bihar, Tamil du and West Bengal. “See what is Congress party’s political position today. Look at Bihar, West Bengal and Tamil du. I think Congress has lowered its political ambitions. It is quite content becoming the tail-ender of any alliance,” Fince Minister Arun Jaitley told reporters here on the sidelines of Bharatiya Jata Party (BJP) tiol executive meeting.
“So from Tamil du to Bihar to Bengal, that is the role they (Congress) have,” he said. Asked whether the political instability in Congress-ruled Uttarakhand figured in the day’s deliberations in BJP meet, the senior party leader quipped that the “issue should rather figure in the Congress working committee meeting”. He said there was a “deep division” in the Congress in Uttarakhand and it should not be attributed to the BJP. Jaitley criticised Uttarakhand Speaker G.S. Kunjwal for his decision to pass the budget by voice vote. (IANS)
