"Ever since Kumar has formed an alliance with the BJP, his democratic thinking has changed. He has started speaking the language of (Prime Minister) Narendra Modi and the BJP," BPCC acting president Kaukab Qadri said here in a statement.

He rubbished the JD(U) president's claim that in a bid to woo Hindu voters, Congress had sidelined its senior leaders.

Qadri also repudiated Kumar's remark that the person who would occupy the top position in the Congress is always "predetermined".

"Kumar should remember that Sitaram Keshri has also been a national president of the party. Before him, Narasimha Rao has held the position for five years," he said.

Referring to Rahul Gandhi, who is all set to be the next Congress president, Qadri said his intensive campaign in Gujarat will ensure the party's victory in that state.
