Chandigarh, March 16: Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Thursday criticized Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for using money to form governments in Manipur and Goa.
“We won the assembly polls in Manipur, Goa and Punjab. BJP used money for forming government in Goa and Manipur. They have stolen the government,” said Rahul after the swearing-in ceremony of Captain Amrinder Singh in Chandigarh.

He also thanked people of Goa and Manipur for ushering in their love and support to the Congress and congratulated the party workers and leaders in both states.
