Former Congress spokesperson Gourav Vallabh who joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) came down heavily on his previous organisation and called it 'directionless.' He alleged that even if Mallikarjun Kharge has been made the party president, he has no authority or freedom to make decisions. He said that Congress ridicules the policies of reforms, liberalisation and globalisation pursued by former prime minister Manmohan Singh because of its dislike for Prime Minister Narendra Modi whom its leaders abuse all day. 

"Mallikarjun Kharge is a very good man, but does not have even 1% right to make decisions," Vallabh said. Coming down heavily on General Secretary KC Venugopal (without naming him) said, "There is just one man who is running the party now by taking the name of Gandhis and Kharge."  

On elections

"Only four out of 100 members of Congress Working Committee are contesting elections. Congress leaders do not want to contest elections, CWC members are afraid of contesting elections, top leaders are unfit to run the party, Congress's ground connect is broken and it has become directionless."

On Sanatan Dharm

Gourav Vallabh criticised Congress' approach to the Sanatana Dharm row and said that the party can't even criticise it openly due to coalition compulsion with the DMK in Tamil Nadu and said, "I can neither raise anti-Sanatana slogans nor abuse wealth creators day in and day out."
