New Delhi, Oct 21:  BJP today advised Congress president Sonia Gandhi and general secretary Rahul Gandhi to change their speech writers, saying the two leaders used terms like "merchant of death" and were "ranting like king-queen" that they had given funds to Bihar from the "royal treasury".

"I would advise Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi to change their speech writers as they put the two leaders in trouble in every election," BJP vice-president Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said.

BJP and its ally JD(U) have expressed their displeasure at the two Congress leaders and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh for repeatedly asserting during the election meetings in Bihar that Centre had given sufficient funds to the state but these were not utilised properly by the NDA government there.

"Earlier by calling a state 'merchant of death' and now in Bihar, their ranting like king-queen that funds were given from the royal treasury is ebbing their (Sonia Gandhi and Rahul) remaining credibility," he said.

The senior BJP leader said the "ego and over-confidence" of Congress leaders has removed them from ground reality.

They cannot see the party and its government cannot see the anger and disappointment of the people, Naqvi said. PTI
