New Delhi: The Congress on Wednesday lashed out at the BJP for playing negative politics and said the party would achieve a hat-trick of sitting in the opposition after the 2014 general elections.

"We are bemused at the lack of a responsible opposition...History will judge the negative role they have played persistently," Congress spokesperson Renuka Chowdhary told reporters.

"We fear that the BJP will make a hat-trick of sitting in the opposition as they have no collective goal and no cohesion in their ranks," she added.

The Congress spokesperson also listed a slew of achievements during the past nine years of the UPA government, including the rural jobs scheme, rural health mission, increased credit for farmers and the higher food production.
