'Nobody can save Congress from defeat in 2014 polls,' says Venkaiah Naidu
A day after Congress General Secretary Rahul Gandhi was appointed as a head of party's 2014 polls coordination committee, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Venkaiah Naidu on Friday said that nobody will be able to save the Congress party from defeat in general elections.
"It is the internal matter of Congress party; we have nothing to do with that but let me also clear one thing that nobody can save Congress party. People are angry with the Congress because of issues like mismanagement, price hike, corruption, farmers suicide, black money etc," Naidu said.
