The Congress is scared of the coming elections which is why its leaders are making such statements, said the Bharatiya Janata Party state president Madan Kaushik. The election commission will decide what is technically correct. He said that the Congress had earlier termed the Salt Assembly by-election as the semi-finals to the 2022 Assembly polls. The Congress lost the semi finals with the BJP candidate winning with a resounding majority. Now the Congress is scared of the coming elections.
It should be mentioned here that though the BJP has not stated anything specific about the CM’s by-election so far, Kaushik, chief minister Tirath Singh Rawat and other senior BJP leaders have averred on more than one occasion that the party will win the coming assembly elections comfortably. They have stated that the people are disenchanted with the Congress especially as the opposition has been fighting against the BJP instead of tackling Covid and serving the affected citizens.
