Shillong, July 31: The BJP national general secretary Arun Singh has predicted that the opposition Congress will be wiped out in Meghalaya.
The Rajya Sabha member arrived in the city to review organisational activities besides addressing the party workers.
Singh told reporters that the Congress was wiped out from most of the states in the country and that it is Meghalaya’s turn to do the same in the Assembly polls to be held in 2023.
“From Meghalaya also, the Congress will be wiped out and the BJP will take a place and win from most of the Congress seats,” he said.
Stating that the Congress leadership has totally failed, Singh said nobody believes the leadership under Rahul Gandhi.
“The Congress has no ideology itself. Congress is taking U-turn every time. They are opposing everything, even for the good things that Modi is doing the Congress is opposing,” he said.
The BJP leader also accused the Congress of indulging in negative and destructive politics and that the people of the country are watching.
“If the leadership is not good, definitely the party cannot grow in the state so nobody has faith in the leadership of Rahul Gandhi,” he said.
No ILP comment
When asked about his stand on the ILP demand, Singh, however, refused to give any comments and said, “I can only say that the state leaders and the Chief Minister will say something about it.”
The party general secretary has denied any infighting within the state.
“I say the BJP is one, there is no infighting, everyone is working together,” he said.
Earlier, Singh informed that he is visiting the state to review the organisation activities in Meghalaya and to boost up the party karyakartas.
