PANAJI: A confused Congress is disintegrating in face of the NDA government's brave decision to abrogate Article 370, BJP national vice president Shivraj Singh Chouhan said here on Sunday.

Chouhan, who is in Goa to address party workers as part of the BJP's pan-India membership drive, also said, that the ruling party expects Sonia Gandhi to articulate the Congress' views on the recent developments related to Jammu and Kashmir, because Rahul Gandhi had already run away from the battle.

"Congress is disintegrating. Rahul and Sonia Gandhi have not said anything. Sonia ji should articulate the opinion of the Congress party. We do not expect Rahul Gandhi to speak. Rahul has become ranchoddas (deserter). It was his job as president to strengthen party after loss. But he opted out first," Chouhan said.

"Congress is still wrapped in confusion. Different leaders are making different comments on the issue. I do not even know if it is a party or something else. Some leaders are openly supporting the decision to abrogate Article 370, while some are speaking Pakistan's language," Chouhan further said, adding that Congress' woes will end once the party rids itself from the influences of dynastic and family raj.
