He pointed out that the Congress was losing its status as an opposition party.
“Congress is calculating that it can win the election because of the anti-incumbent factor, the farmer protest, and its secularism plot. The lack of leadership and the struggle between party leaders is hurting the interests of Congress,” he said. declared the “Catholic Sabha”. According to the article, the Congress remained a mere spectator while offering no solution (to the problems) while the BJP pursued its program of a “Mukt Bharat Congress”. “Even though Priyanka Gandhi experimented in the Uttar Pradesh elections, Congress was not in the picture (election battle). Congress leaders were supporting the BJP’s agenda of a ‘Congress Mukt Bharat’ by fighting among themselves,” adds the article published in “Catholic Sabha” under the headline “Does the Congress Party take its distances with the proposed national alternative”.
The article criticized Rahul Gandhi’s “dual” position of not taking charge of the party chairman but controlling the organization from behind the curtains.
