Bharatiya Janata Party Karnal (Haryana), May 5 (IANS) The Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) prime ministerial candidate L.K. Advani Tuesday attacked the Congress saying that the party had no culture of sharing power.
Addressing a rally in favour of the BJP candidate I.D. Swami in this Haryana town, Advani said it was the BJP that had shared power with other parties at the centre.

“The Congress has no culture of sharing power at the centre. The Congress has ruled alone for nearly 50 years. It is the BJP which has worked successfully with coalition partners,” Advani said.

“The 20th century may have belonged to America or Britain. We will ensure that the 21st century belongs to India,” he said.

The BJP leader said the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government had failed to tackle issues like terrorism, economy and poverty.

If voted to power, Advani said, the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) would introduce a pension scheme for farmers. He added that the NDA would also ensure that all loans of farmers are waived.
