Assembly poll results show people `intolerant` towards Congress: Naidu

Submitted by Kumuda on Thu, 2016-05-19 16:29 New Delhi: With Congress unable to make an impact in the five states where assembly elections took place, especially in Assam where they are conceding defeat at the hands of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Union Minister of Parliamentary Affairs M. Venkaiah Naidu on Thursday said the assembly poll results have clearly showed that people are intolerant towards the grand old party. "The assembly poll results clearly showed that people are intolerant towards the Congress Party because the Congress party was not ready to accept the verdict of the people. They tried to stall the progress, tried to make small issues grown out of proportion," Naidu told reporters. "They tried to mislead the people of the country and were blocking the development. That's why the people became intolerant towards the Congress Party," he added. (ANI)
