New Delhi: In a scathing attack against the Opposition INDIA bloc, BJP leader Shehzad Poonawalla on Thursday alleged that the alliance has no mission for the country and that they want to "auction" the post of Prime Minister.

"INDIA alliance has no mission for the country. They have come up with their own corruption, dynastic profession, ambition, and confusion," Poonawalla told ANI.

"There is such a fight among themselves because of their ambition and confusion. They want to auction PM Modi's post...They should announce their candidate for the Prime Ministerial post," he added.

Meanwhile, the BJP on Thursday continued its attack on Congress over the latter's alleged inheritance tax proposal.

Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath Accuses Congress

Wading into the controversy, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Thursday accused the Congress of intending to seize the property of common people. He alleged that the Congress plans to distribute the people's wealth among the Rohingyas as part of their vote bank policy.

"The mindset of Congress for the country and the common people of the country was revealed during the UPA government regime and yesterday. There were hints even in the Congress manifesto. What Sam Pitroda said yesterday was advocated for by then Home Minister P Chidambaram too. Congress looted the country's resources for almost 60-65 years. Now, it has its eyes set on common people's property. That is why it is talking about Inheritance tax. It will be distributed among people who are intruders. Who doesn't know that behind the crores of intruders, Rohingyas in different parts of the country is Congress' vote bank policy? They have always done politics at the cost of the nation, inheritance tax is a part of it," he said."It is good that Congress departed in 2014; otherwise, Congress would have implemented it at that time itself," he added.

CM Yogi also criticised the Karnataka government for including all castes and communities of Muslims in the list of Other Backward Classes (OBCs), calling it an attempt to Islamize India and create divisions. He compared it to similar attempts made by the previous government.

"Congress' statement is very unfortunate. This is part of the despicable attempts at Islamizing India and pushing it towards divisions. When the UPA government came to power, it made such attempts at that time too...At that time, too, the BJP had carried out a massive agitation. So, be it the Justice Verma Committee Report or the Sachar Committee Report, they were all attempts by Congress to loot the reservation of OBCs, SCs, and STs. PM Modi has drawn the nation's attention towards these issues...You saw the Congress government in Karnataka's stand, where they said that they would provide 32 percent reservation to Muslims in the state. What is this? The truth is coming out...These show that their intentions towards the country are not good. The country and the public will have to be alert," he said.
