The BJP on Friday took a jibe at the Opposition parties' INDIA bloc meeting, saying its only takeaway is that they have "formally and politically" accepted their give-and-take principle.

Addressing a press conference at the BJP headquarters here, senior party leader Ravi Shankar Prasad said in the third meeting of the "so-called opposition alliance", there was no strategy to address the concerns of farmers, women and children.

"There was no vision for the development of India, no roadmap for the upliftment of poor... third meeting of the so-called Opposition alliance did not even acknowledge the threat to India posed by terrorism, radicalisation and secessionist forces," he said.

The only takeaway from the meeting held in Mumbai is that the opposition parties have "formally and politically accepted their give-and-take principle", the BJP leader said.

"Their only recurrent theme is abuse (Prime Minister) Narendra Modi as much as possible... Their only competition is on who exceeds whom in cursing and abusing Modiji," he added.
