Pune, Jun 18 (PTI) Calling Congress a “sinking ship”, Union Urban Development Minister Venkaiah Naidu today said people were leaving it because of the absence of leadership.”Congress is losing states one by one and now it has existence in only six per cent of the states in the country. As there is an absence of leadership in the Congress, the party is becoming a sinking ship,” said Naidu, addressing Maharashtra BJPs executive meeting here.The parties which lecture on secularism did not give any representation to the minority communities in the Rajya Sabha, he said, adding, “Whereas we gave two representatives from minority community, Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi and noted journalist M J Akbar.””Since they (Congress) are not being able to digest the mandate the Modi government received in 2014, they are now carrying out a false propaganda … it is the responsibility of the party workers to give an assertive but polite response to this propaganda,” Naidu said.”As we do not own any newspaper and channels, you have to become newspaper and media to showcase the work which Modi and his government are doing,” he said to the workers.Naidu also said that he was a proud RSS worker, and the RSS taught him nationalism and patriotism. “However, there are people in the country who are violent (in criticism) on RSS and silent on ISIS,” he quipped.Because of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Indias stature in the world had grown, which was recently seen when the PM got standing ovation in the US Congress, he said.
