Rohan Gupta Slams Congress 

Rohan Gupta criticized the Congress party for its directionless nature and internal contradictions, which, according to him, have led to a loss of credibility. Gupta pointed out several issues, such as the Congress’s decision to skip the Ram temple consecration ceremony, its opposition to the CAA, and its alignment with parties like AAP, to emphasize his stance.

He voiced his endorsement of the BJP leadership’s goal of achieving a “developed India” by 2047 and praised Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision. Last month, Rohan Gupta resigned from the Congress after retracting his candidature from the Ahmedabad East Lok Sabha constituency.

He attributed his decision to “continuous humiliation and character assassination by a leader affiliated with the communication department” of the Congress. Another former Congress spokesperson, Gourav Vallabh, has also recently joined the BJP.
