'Zyada Jogi, Matth Ujaad' is INDIA alliance's situation, says Union Minister Anupriya Patel

INDIA alliance will not last long, says BJP's Bhagwat Karad

"INDIA alliance will become 'anda' alliance": Union Minister Piyush Goyal

"In the third meeting of the so-called alliance, there was no vision for the development of India, no roadmap for the upliftment of the poor, no strategy to address concerns of farmers or women and children. The most important is that there was not even an acknowledgement of the threat to India from terrorism, radicalisation and successionist forces...Their only recurrent theme is to abuse Shri Narendra Modi ji..." said BJP's Ravi Shankar Prasad.

Govt is stealing from poor people. PM Modi will never work for people, he always works against the poor. He works with big corporate leaders. Only yesterday, Rahul Gandhi put forth the report on Adani: Kharge
