NEW DELHI: The BJP leader and Union minister of state for Parliamentary affairs Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi has claimed that Congress has become a "benami property" whose owner is unknown. The minister claimed that there is “utter confusion” about who is the chief of the Congress.

Reacting to the statement of the Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad that Priyanka Gandhi is looking after the party's assembly poll management rather than campaigning, Naqvi quipped that there is complete confusion on how many chiefs the Congress has. Azad had claimed that the army chiefs need not go to the border to fight. "I am not aware of how many army chiefs are there in the Congress. Soniaji is their army chief, Rahulji is, Priyankaji is, so is Robert Vadra. The Congress has turned into a benami property whose owner is unknown,” Naqvi said, who also claimed that the Congress has raised “to-let board” and anyone can gatecrash into the party.

Incidentally, the BJP is training guns on the Congress and the ruling Samajwadi Party in Uttar Pradesh.
