The Congress through manipulation has won the number game, but the Opposition has won the battle of ethics, they claimed.

Describing the Congress� victory as a serious threat to Indian democracy they called upon the people to teach the Congress and the traitors a good lesson during the 2011 elections to the State Assembly.

The results of the RS polls today exposed the undemocratic character of the Congress as well as its leader Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi, who was initially maintaining that his party�s second preference nominee was not enjoying the required support of the legislators. The Chief Minister also hinted possibility of the withdrawal of the second preference nominee�s nomination, they said.

By wining away some legislators, the Congress cannot win over the people, rather the ruling party along with the �deserters� of the Opposition camp, has earned the infamy of murderer of democracy, the Opposition leaders said.
