The Shiv Sena on Tuesday mocked the Congress party, saying no one wants to contest the Lok Sabha polls on a Congress ticket.
In an editorial in its mouthpiece Saamna, the Shiv Sena said there is an anti-Congress wave in the country.
“(Congress vice-president) Rahul Gandhi is trying to fill air in a balloon which already has holes in it,” the editorial said.
“It’s hilarious that a party (Congress) which can’t find candidates is claiming to win more than 200 seats,” the piece added.
It may be noted that Rahul had recently rejected opinion polls which claimed that the BJP will win more than 200 seats, while the Congress’ tally could get reduced to less than 100.
He had expressed confidence that the Congress would win more than 200 seats.
Also, of late many senior Congress leader have expressed their desire not to contest the 2014 General Elections.
