The development came three days after the Bharatiya Janata Party lampooned the Congress when some of its Delhi leaders were seen eating out at a restaurant prior to its fast on Monday.
Pune (Maharashtra), April 12 (IANS): There were red faces in the BJP after two of its legislators were found snacking on sandwiches and chips as the party leaders and cadres led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi observed a day's fast across India on Thursday.
He said the government was ready to discuss all issues, including the Punjab National Bank fraud and special status demand for Andhra Pradesh, but it was the Congress that used the smaller parties to disrupt the proceedings.
"The Congress does not believe in democracy. It looks like some NGO has handed over to him the word democracy". Rahul Baba, don't preach us on democracy. "He is working hard to save the only ATM left in the country", he said.
Shah alleged that there was no internal democracy in the Congress party. It does not have internal party democracy and can not save democracy in the country, he said.
Accusing the Congress of toppling other governments through "conspiracy" whenever it was out of power, he said by hiring a foreign company, "some people had obtained data on castes".
Sharma, a former union minister, claimed it was the BJP which had orchestrated disruptions in Parliament so as not to debate key issues or be accountable for their failures. "Now it's Karnataka's turn".
Blaming the Congress of fanning hatred in the country and playing divisive politics, Shah said the wise people understood its sinister tactics and defeated its candidates in state after state since 2014. "We will start the campaign from farmer Dharma Patil's village", Shetti said.
As part of BJP's nationwide day-long fast to protest against the recent parliament washout, Manipur BJP also staged the protest in front of party's head office in Imphal. "If this behaviour continues, the Congress party will lose more seats", said Mysuru-Kodagu Lok Sabha member Pratap Simha. However, it could not be passed due to disturbances given in the proceedings of the Parliament by the opposition Congress.
