Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh took a dig at the grand-old party-led by Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday by calling the party with a procession of marriage without the groom.
"More precisely, the Congress party is like a 'Barat' without a groom," Singh said at a press conference in poll-bound Madhya Pradesh, adding that the party is leaderless and lacks command structure.
The Union Minister further compared the Congress with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and asserted that contrary to his party that declares its prime ministerial candidate as well as chief ministerial candidates ahead of elections, while the Congress fails the courage to come up to the BJP's level.
Singh also claimed that local Congress leaders in Madhya Pradesh are often seen projecting themselves as a chief ministerial candidate. He further said that it only reflected that the Congress is leaderless and lacks command structure.
Praising the NDA regime at the Centre, the Singh asserted that the "Acche Din" already exists in the country. He also holds the Congress responsible for "credibility crisis" in politics currently. "The Congress party has systematically ruined the economy of the country and states over the years during their regime whereas we have given a tremendous boost to the economy. Though no political party or government is perfect, our party is run by an ideology and political thought, and if our growth rate continues like this, India will stand among top three economies of the world by 2033," said Rajnath.
