BJP will foil plot to bring Emergency, says Gadkari

“The incident which happened at the Ramlila Ground is Ravan Lila. The crackdown on Ramdev’s fast reveals the restlessness of the Congress-led UPA government. What happened is fascism and cannot be tolerated. The BJP will not tolerate it,” said Gadkari while addressing party workers here.

“What kind of atrocity is this? Old people, children, and women were beaten up as they demanded the return of black money stacked in foreign countries. The Congress talks about the non-violent movement of Gandhiji and this is what you get when you conduct a non-violent movement,” Gadkari said.

The police had evicted Ramdev and his supporters from the Ramlila Ground in New Delhi June 4. He was on a fast against corruption.

“Earlier, the Congress had imposed Emergency. The people of the India still remember that black chapter. I want to say that if Soniaji tries to move away from the path of democracy and tries to impose Emergency, we will not tolerate it,” he said.

He said the crackdown showed the lack of tolerance on the part of the Congress-led UPA government. Gadkari also blamed Prime Minister Manmohan Singh for the various scams from 2G to CWG, which rocked the nation in the recent past.

“What was Manmohan Singh doing when 2G scam and CWG scams were going on? The prime minister and the government only gave rights to loot this country. Each and every file was signed by Manmohan Singh, if Suresh Kalmadi (former Commonwealth Games Organising Committee chief) is responsible, then why the prime minister is not responsible,” said Gadkari.
