BJP dented in Haryana, denied in Maharashtra, defeated in Jharkhand: PC

Former Union minister P Chidambaram gave a call to the opposition parties to rally around Congress to take on BJP, saying the Jharkhand results showed that the saffron party can be defeated.

“The overwhelming mandate and the resounding victory of Congress-JMM alliance in Jharkhand shows that BJP can be defeated if the opposition parties come together. Dented in Haryana, denied in Maharashtra and defeated in Jharkhand. That is the story of BJP in 2019,” he said.

Referring to the twin issues of CAA and NRC, Chidambaram said the challenge before the nation today is not an ordinary one. Referring to PM Narendra Modi’s statement that no rules were framed for an all-India NRC exercise, Chidambaram said: “It pains (me) when the PM speaks against the truth. Amit Shah has gone on record that they will implement NRC across the nation,” he said.
