Congress spokesperson Abhishek Singhvi said, “I do not agree with the proposition at all…Before the elections, all options are always open for alliances except with communal parties.”
On questions whether the Congress-led UPA which has been in power for the past ten years was shrinking ahead of the Lok Sabha polls, Singhvi’s remarks this statement.
Meanwhile BJP spokesperson Ravishankar Prasad earlier said, “Congress is a sinking ship and its passengers are deserting it. Sonia cannot deliver. Manmohan Singh is past. Rahul Gandhi is a failure. They know how Congress and UPA have made a mess of India. Allies are seeking greener pastures elsewhere.”
Singhvi remarks had come in the backdrop of BJP dubbing the Congress as a “sinking ship” which was being deserted by its passengers.
