Oppn's efforts for realignment a disinformation campaign:Naidu

In a veiled jibe at JD(U) chief Nitish Kumar who had pitched for a largest possible unity among secular parties against BJP, Union Minister M Venkaiah Naidu today said the efforts by Opposition for a realignment are based on their "disinformation campaign" against the Centre and claimed that such front won't "succeed".

Addressing party workers here, Naidu said the opposition is trying to form the realignment in order to bring a bad repute to Modi government.

He termed the "attack" on government by various parties after the death of Hyderabad Central University research scholar Rohit Vemula as "one single classic example of the disinformation campaign by these forces".

"Now the opposition is continuing their disinformation campaign and they are trying to form realignment. Three Cs- the casteist, communal and corrupt forces they want to come together and they want to form a front. Earlier, also they formed such fronts.

"They formed national front which become a notional front. They became a united front which became a divided front. They became a third front and that too has disappeared," the Parliamentary Affairs Minister said at a function during which K Laxman assumed charge as Telangana state unit president of BJP.

"This is nothing new and they are not going to succeed in this as the country is solidly behind Prime Minister Narendra Modi," he said.

Stressing that the BJP is against the fundamentalist forces, the saffron leader said, "Opposing to MIM does not mean opposing Muslims. Opposing Muslim League does not mean opposing Muslims. It is very clear. But, they (opposition) are trying to mislead the people and they are carrying on the misinformation campaign".

Coming out in defence of his colleague and Union Minister Bandaru Dattatreya in view of the Vemula suicide, Naidu said, "You have seen what happened in Hyderabad Central University. Such a person who is committed to the weaker sections and who has spent his entire life for the cause of the poor people, Bandaru Dattatreya his name has been dragged. They are trying to defame him as if he has done a crime".

"He forwarded a letter to (HRD ministry)...Congress MPs also forwarded letters and made much more serious charges in the letters. He did not mention about that particular boy (Rohit Vemula in the letter)," Naidu said.

Dattatreya had said that he had merely forwarded a letter he had received through a BJP vice-president about certain activities prevailing in the university.

"Why beeline to Hyderabad now? They never came to Hyderabad when 10 students committed suicide before the unfortunate death of Rohit. Rahul Gandhi never came. He was silent because his mother (Sonia Gandhi) was ruling and now they are trying to be violent because Modi is ruling," Naidu said.

He said the country has to be "vigilant" as the three Cs of "casteist, communal and corrupt" are trying to come together and they want to form a front to bring the Modi government to "bad repute".

He said there is a tremendous scope for BJP in Telangana.

"There is a political vacuum in the non-government side. So, we have to work hard to fill that vacuum to become a force to reckon with. Political conditions and social conditions are favourable to us and we have a basic infrastructure in Telangana and we have good leadership also," Naidu said while appealing to the BJP workers to take advantage of the same and try to reach to all sections of the society.
