Press Trust of India  |  Guwahati 

Nalin today said the and its were indulging in an "imaginary of hatred", adding that it would not work as the people of the country were smarter.

"They (and Gandhi) are trying to create an imaginary of hatred in The country will not be fooled. India's citizens and voters are smarter," he told a press conference here.

Taking a dig at leaders, said they were playing over their own non-performance in terms of attendance and discussions in Parliament.

"They are trying to cover up their inability to develop their own constituencies," he said, while citing Gandhi's constituency of Amethi in as a "classic example" of this.

"It almost seems that Rahul Gandhi's tweets celebrate negative Even if a one-sided, factually incorrect report is published anywhere in the world, Gandhi and his colleagues jump on it and paint it as the picture of India," alleged.

While the BJP was engaged in the politics of performance, the Congress was indulging in the politics of running down and criticising the development of the country, he added.

"On one side is the ideology of performance and on the other side is the ideology of power for the sake of power," the said, adding that was working for the development of all Indians since his first day in office.

Asked about the BJP's coalition partners for the 2019 polls, Kohli said it was too early to discuss these issues.

"The NDA is real and the mahagathbandhan (Grand Alliance) is illusionary, it is not real. So, if people ask about the mahagathbandhan, then let it first form, if it is to be formed. Whether it will be formed, who will be its leader...

"Opposing Modiji cannot be an agenda for alternative or an agenda for governance. If they wish to compete, let them compete on politics of performance," he added.
