Exuding confidence among the party workers, Pandey said Congress has always practiced politics of ethics and has never compromised with its values and ideology. Rajasthan Congress chief Sachin Pilot also hit out at the Centre and the state government, saying people were being misled and the BJP governments have failed on all fronts. "Be it presenting distorted history, demolition of temples, lynching of innocent people in the name of protecting cows, the BJP government has failed on all fronts," Pilot alleged. He added that despite BJP being at the helm of affair in the Centre and the state, the government has turned out be a failure on internal and external security issues. "Army jawans are dying, terrorist activities have increased, extremism is high in Kashmir and naxal problem stands resolved."
