BJP has polluted the country’s social and cultural fabric, says Azad

Leader of the Opposition in Rajya Sabha Ghulam Nabi Azad speaks at a public rally in Chikkamagaluru on Saturday.

The leader of the Opposition in Rajya Sabha Ghulam Nabi Azad has charged that the BJP has come to power by polluting the social and cultural fabric of the country.

Speaking at a public rally here on Saturday, he said that a pluralistic society is the strength of the country wherein Hindus and Muslims are living in harmony.

“Prime Minister Narendra Modi is behaving as if he has come from a new planet. An attempt is being made to divide the society. The country has seen prime ministers like Morarji Desai, Charan Singh, H D Deve Gowda, Chandrashekar, V P Singh and A B Vajpayee. But Modi is different from all others. India is known for communal harmony and is a pluralistic society. No one has sought the votes on the basis of religion. Modi who is behaving like he has come from a new planet is trying to divide the society,” he charged.

North India is caught in the vicious circles of caste and religion. The south Indian states of Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Kerala, and Karnataka are marching ahead with development. There is no discrimination based on caste and religion in these states, said Azad.

The BJP is trying to win over these states. If BJP wins, then the situation that prevails in North India will become the order of the day in these states as well, he said.

Azad called upon the people to question Modi over the promise of depositing Rs 15 lakh into the bank accounts of the citizens, generation of two crore employment annually, and also doubling the income of the farmers and rise in atrocities of female children.

He also said that there is no protection for women in the country.

He went on to add that the price of petroleum products has increased in spite of the decrease in the price of petroleum products in the international market.

Congress candidate B L Shankar spoke about the upgrading of the district hospital and setting up of industrial areas if elected to the Assembly.
