BJP disconnected with India, says Congress

New Delhi, June 10 (IANS) The Congress Monday took potshots at the BJP over the resignation of party veteran L.K. Advani from his posts, saying the opposition party had no connect with India.

"It is for the BJP to think. It is for the concerned persons to think. We had already said that it (Modi's elevation) will have its repercussions," Congress general secretary Janardan Dwivedi said.

"The BJP is totally disconnected with the nation," Congress spokesperson Renuka Chowdhury added. She said she was amazed "the BJP was not able to see the writing on the wall".

Advani Monday quit from all major posts in the BJP, accusing most party colleagues of being "concerned just with their personal agendas".

Advani sent a letter to BJP president Rajnath Singh a day after the party named Modi as head of the campaign committee for the 2014 Lok Sabha polls.
