Congress now like a two-rupee note that’s no longer in circulation, has become a big zero: Bhabesh Kalita


Guwahati: The Congress party has been reduced to a big zero and is now like a two-rupee note that has simply no takers, said Assam BJP president Bhabesh Kalita after the grand old party failed to win even a single seat in the 60-member Guwahati Municipal Corporation (GMC) elections, results of which were declared today (April 24).  

And while the Congress drew a blank, the BJP and its ally AGP swept the hustings winning 58 seats among them while the AAP and the Asom Jatiya Parishad (AJP) opened their accounts winning one seat each.

“People won’t vote for Congress. They are like the two-rupee note which has expired its validity. Congress is big zero now. And it’s not us but the people of Assam who have made them a big zero,” Kalita said.

“I thank the people of the city who have blessed our CM Himanta Biswa Sarma and the BJP party with their precious votes,” he added.
