"Today Kharge ji was speaking but the microphone was switched off. They ( BJP ) do not believe in democratic process," the Congress Vice President said addressing a youth Congress programme here.
His remarks came amid a stalemate between the government and the opposition on the issue of the controversial remarks of union minister Niranjan Jyoti.
"PM wants all power in his hands. The country won't work this way...," he said.
At a time when Congress' electoral fortunes are sliding, the party Vice President made a strong pitch for a bigger political role to youths in his party saying his job is to get Youth Congress leaders into the parent party.
"You are the testimony of Youth Congress's struggle. My job is to get Youth Congress leaders into the parent Congress," he said.
Alleging that the NDA government is "just about symbolism", he said, "our party is the party of Hindustan. It is not the party of any religion or region or any community."
The event, a first-of-its-kind meet organised by Youth Congress Chief Rajiv Satav, was also attended by party chief Sonia Gandhi.
