Bastar (Chhattisgarh) [India], July 28 (ANI): Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi hit out at the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Friday, saying that the saffron party has time and again lied to the people of Chhattisgarh and used them for their benefits just to come to power. "Just to come to power, the BJP plotted scams in Chhattisgarh, killed the tribal people, closed the small-scale industries, and killed the Dalits. They didn't spare anyone. They did all these thing just to come to power," Gandhi said, while addressing a gathering of party workers and leaders here. Gandhi said that BJP leaders speak so 'loudly' that even their lies seem to be the truth. "They lie every time. But the people don't need to be scared of these lies, because at the end only truth triumphs and for that, the people have to make effort," he said. ' Chhattisgarh will go on polls to elect members from the 90 constituencies in the state next year. The comments come in the backdrop of the recent political drama that unfolded in Bihar in recent days, wherein Chief Minister Nitish Kumar stepped down, only to take the oath the next day, this time in forming an alliance with the BJP. The Congress has been, since then, criticising the BJP for disrespecting the mandate in the state that was "against the saffron party." (ANI)
