A day after the results of the Karnataka polls, Congress MP Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury on Sunday urged the opposition to unite stating that if the opposition does not unite now then the people of the country will not forgive them.
While talking to ANI, he said "We are saying from the beginning that if the Opposition is united then BJP can't remain in power. After the Karnataka polls, a wave has started across the country and people are saying that the days of PM Modi and BJP are ending."
"If the Opposition will not unite now then the people of the country will not forgive us," added Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury.
He also said that vote of the public is not always fixed for one party like a fixed deposit rather it changes according to time.
According to him, the whole country is celebrating the victory of Congress in the Karnataka polls and Rahul Gandhi's led Bharat Jodo Yatra was loved by the people. He also highlighted the Congress party as a symbol of truth.
As the counting of votes for the Karnataka assembly elections concluded on Saturday, Congress got a thumping majority by winning 136 seats.
