The Congress and other parties on Sunday took a dig at BJP leader L K Advani saying he has conceded defeat even before the race has begun for the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, while some BJP leaders differed with him.
Reacting to Advani's latest post on his blog, Congress leader Rajiv Shukla told reporters here: "...Advani himself has conceded defeat by saying there is a possibility that there can't be a BJP Prime Minister in 2014."
Another Congress leader Satyavrat Chaturvedi said Advani's statement reflected internal rift in his party.
Echoing the Congress, Samajwadi Party leader Mohan Singh said: "Even before the elections, BJP has conceded defeat."
While Sharad Yadav, who heads JD(U), refused to indulge in speculation, BJP vice-president Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said there was a strong anti-Congress wave in the country and the NDA would win with majority.
