"Congress is a sinking ship and its passengers are deserting it. Sonia cannot deliver. Manmohan Singh is past. Rahul Gandhi is a failure. They know how Congress and UPA have made a mess of India. Allies are seeking greener pastures elsewhere," BJP spokesperson Ravishankar Prasad said.

Prasad was reacting to media reports regarding unease in Congress' ties with National Conference and that NCP president Sharad Pawar had met BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi in Delhi earlier this month.

Pawar, however, denied meeting Modi.

The BJP leader said that Congress' allies were making "discordant" noises because they know it cannot deliver.

"What is wrong about it... It is only indicative of the mood of the country," he said.

"Who else is with Congress and UPA? Chidambaram asks about BJP, I want to ask him what about Congress. Mayawati (BSP) and Mulayam (SP), although supporting from outside, are making open discordant notes. DMK is already away from them. No allies are left for them," he said.
