NEW DELHI: Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Friday lashed out at the Congress party for its decision to boycott the Lok Sabha exit poll debates.

“During the whole election campaign, the Congress party has been claiming that they are going to get the majority. But now they are boycotting the entire exit poll exercise, claiming that exit poll debates are meaningless as the results are going to be out on June 4th," said Amit Shah.

Shah added that denial mode has become the character of Congress after Rahul Gandhi took the party's leadership. They questioned the integrity of the Supreme Court, when a supreme court judgement does not favour them. They have also questioned the integrity of the Election Commission and the EVMs, mimicking individuals holding constitutional positions, and criticising various agencies. This has become the norm of the Congress party and its leaders, who don't keep trust in the country's system.

He further said that he would like to tell Congress leaders that hiding their faces like an ostrich is not going to help them. They need to face the defeat with courage and move ahead like the BJP did earlier.
