NEW DELHI: In response to the Congress party’s outcry over the freezing of its accounts by the Income Tax Department, BJP National President JP Nadda delivered a scathing rebuke, dismissing their claims of financial woes as “comical.” The political feud erupted as Congress leaders accused the ruling dispensation, led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, of orchestrating a systematic effort to cripple the party financially.

Nadda lambasted Congress for attempting to shift blame onto authorities, asserting that their bankruptcy is not financial but moral and intellectual. He highlighted Congress’s long history of alleged corruption, stating, “For a party which has looted from every sector, in every state and at every moment of history, to talk of financial helplessness is comical.”

In response to Nadda’s remarks, Congress leaders reiterated their stance, emphasising the discriminatory nature of the government’s actions.

The feud between BJP and Congress is escalating- While BJP accuses Congress of corruption and incompetence, Congress portrays itself as a victim of targeted persecution by the ruling establishment. As both parties gear up for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, the battle for public opinion intensifies, with each side seeking to discredit the other while vying for voter support.
