BJP slams Sonia Gandhi's comments
New Delhi, May 9 (IANS) The opposition Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Wednesday termed as a reflection of the Congress's frustration its party chief Sonia Gandhi's statement that it had become "fashionable" to criticize the government.
Talking to reporters in the Parliament House complex, BJP leader Gopinath Munde slammed the Congress president's statement and said it was the BJP's right as an opposition to criticise the government.
"In a democracy, it is the opposition's duty to highlight shortcomings of the government," Munde said.
"By saying this the Congress president is displaying the Congress's frustration, firstly because it lost in Uttar Prsdesh, and then the municipal polls in Maharashtra and Delhi," he said.
"Secondly, this government which claimed to solve the problems of the people in 100 days, has failed totally and to hide it, they are attacking us," Munde said.
"There is no coordination in the ministers, no coordination between the party and the prime minister, nor does it have proper floor coordination or tuning with allies... If the Congress president focuses on her party instead of others, perhaps these problems will be solved," he said.
Addressing a meeting of the Congress Parliamentary Party, Gandhi had said: "It seems to have become almost fashionable these days to criticise the government. We must speak forcefully and with confidence on what we have achieved and there is much we have to show despite difficult economic times."
