'BJP Using Swamy to Persecute and Prosecute Congress'

Submitted by Subeditor on Tue, 2015-12-08 19:47 New Delhi: Launching a scathing attack on senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Subramanian Swamy, the Congress on Tuesday branded him as a tool being used by the ruling party to persecute and prosecute the grand old party. “Who is Subramanian Swamy? He is the power of attorney holder of the BJP to persecute and prosecute the Congress party and a member of their central committee. He has been given the specific task of targeting us and this is their methodology used by the BJP, so he is his master's voice. And the way the BJP has been targeting Congress leaders in the past year, shows they have no idea how to govern this country,” Senior Congress leader and advocate Kapil Sibal told the media here. He accused the BJP-led government of trying to distract the attention of the masses from the good governance that was being practiced by the Congress leadership and accused them of going all out in their goal to have a “Congress-free” India. “We want that the BJP functions within the constitution and focuses on governance so that the people are benefitted. Truth is that the BJP wants a Congress free India. And any political party which says it wants that is destined to failure. How can a political party say they don't want an opposition? It's undemocratic,” Sibal added. However, he added that he was sure of the nation's faith in the Congress and expressed confidence that the grand old party will come back with a bang in the same way it has done in the past. (ANI)
