Raising questions over governance by the BJP government in Goa and Punjab the Congress leader said that BJP has never delivered on their promises.

The Congress leader also highlighted its performance in Punjab, where it is leading over SAD-BJP combine and AAP.
On the other side Congress leader Sharmistha Mukherjee said that Congress will look into the reasons for its defeat in UP. She said that Same Admi Party has lost its credibility and should not dream of having national presence.
