The Congress on Saturday said the Narendra Modi government should explain how absconding don Dawood Ibrahim's wife managed to visit Mumbai last year undetected and added that it raises questions about the credibility of the Centre and the Maharashtra government as well as the state and central security agencies.
The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) (translation: Indian People's Party) is one of the two major political parties in India, the other being the Indian National Congress. Established in 1980, it is India's second largest political party. The Bharatiya Janata Party traditionally has supported Indian Nationalism and strongly advocates conservative social policies, self-reliance, free market capitalistic policy, foreign policy driven by a nationalist agenda, and strong national defence. The party's platform is generally considered right of center in the Indian political spectrum.
The BJP, in alliance with several other parties, was in power from 1998 to 2004, with Atal Bihari Vajpayee as the Prime Minister and Lal Krishna Advani as his deputy. It is the biggest constituent of the National Democratic Alliance which is currently in the opposition.
