The Congress Saturday attacked L K Advanis remark that BJP workers should not be apologetic about Ram temple issue and said the opposition party raises the issue only to capture power.
Whenever polls are near,BJP rakes up Ram temple. They didnt talk about it when they were in power for six years at the Centre. People no longer trust them. It is only to capture power that BJP rakes it up, Congress spokesperson Rashid Alvi said.
Advani told partymen on the occasion of BJP Foundation Day here that he was proud to admit that his party had raised the issue of Ram temple and Ayodhya as it was not just a political outfit but also a cultural one.
Alvi also took a dig at the BJP over its Delhi chief Vijay Goels remarks that the next government at the Centre will be formed under L K Advanis leadership. When you fight just for the sake of power. It leads to groupism in the party. Every group has its own leader and the supporters of that leader try to put him forward, Alvi said.
On Advanis remarks that the things that he gets to hear these days about the party do not match with his idea of BJP,the Congress spokesperson said only Advani can tell what he dreamt of,what was fulfilled and what failed. When you say that you want to get power at any cost,then it is for enjoyment. The pursuit of such a power leads to divisions. For Congress,power is an instrument to serve the people, Alvi said.
