Reacting to the statement of the state president of Uttarakhand BJP Madan Kaushik in which he had claimed to trigger a major defection in Uttarakhand Congress, the Pradesh Congress Committee (PCC) president Ganesh Godiyal has said that it would be better if the BJP concentrates its time and energy on the issues of public interest. He said that the people of the state gave a huge mandate to the BJP for development and not for promoting factionalism in the opposition parties.
Talking to the media -persons at the Congress Bhawan here on Wednesday, the PCC president said that the manner in which the BJP is trying to induce defection in opposition parties proves that the leadership of the party has become directionless. Godiyal claimed that there is no possibility of Congress leaders and workers joining the BJP in Uttarakhand as everyone has witnessed that BJP does not give any respect to the leaders and workers.
