Rahul indulging in politics to disintegrate India: BJP

Thursday, 25 April 2024 | Staff Reporter | New Delhi

The Delhi BJP on Wednesday staged a protest near the Congress party headquarters here, claiming that Rahul Gandhi was indulging in politics to disintegrate India. The BJP also said that the Congress manifesto for the Lok Sabha polls was an “insult” to the culture of the country.

Ahead of Lok Sabha polls, the BJP including Prime Minister Narendra Modi have launched a frontal attack on the Congress alleging its manifesto smacks of appeasement and that if it came to power, it would redistribute people’s wealth and also give reservations to Muslims from the quotas for SC, ST and OBC communities.

Senior BJP leaders, including national general secretary Tarun Chugh, Delhi state president Virendra Sachdeva, and Delhi BJP Mahila Morcha president Richa Pandey, took part in the protest.

Chugh said the manifesto of the Congress “conspired” to “snatch away” property and jewellery of women and give it to the minorities.

He alleged the Congress manifesto was an “insult” to the culture of the country and that Gandhi was indulging in politics to disintegrate India.

“The manifesto of Congress is full of appeasement and it will weaken the country,” Sachdeva said.  He claimed the manifesto includes includes “jihadi” and “appeasement” politics.

Addressing a press conference here, Sachdeva slammed the Congress, saying the party’s manifesto for the Lok Sabha elections “aims to break the country”.

“The manifesto of the Congress reeks of ‘jihadi’ thinking and appeasement politics. They have said if we come to power we will survey the assets of the country. Congress should explain which assets they are referring to. Are they talking about the jewellery of our mothers and daughters?” he said.

Asking if the Congress wanted to “confiscate the assets of mothers and sisters”, Sachdeva said, “Is it a crime to belong to the majority Hindu community? Is it a crime to wear ‘mangalsutra’?”

Leader of Opposition in MCD Raja Iqbal Singh also addressed the press conference. He slammed the AAP for delaying the disbursal of funds for purchasing uniforms and books for students in MCD schools.

Sachdeva said all claims of improvement in Delhi government’s education system are completely hollow and same has been confirmed by the repeated comments of the Delhi High Court.

The BJP leader said in the past two weeks, the Delhi High Court has exposed the hollow claims of the Arvind Kejriwal government’s world-class education system by issuing strict directives on the deterioration of schools run by both the Delhi government and the municipal corporation.

Sachdeva said the Delhi High Court, after the report of the social jurist on government schools in North East Delhi, had condemned the Delhi’s Education Secretary.

On April 8, the court criticized the Delhi government for running schools in tin sheds and tents with broken desks, dilapidated classrooms, and for accommodating 144 students in a class room, besides expressing concern over the lack of education and play foeld facilities in schools.

Sachdeva said it is regrettable that even after the directives issued by the Delhi High Court two weeks ago, the Arvind Kejriwal-led Delhi government and the municipal corporation of Delhi have not started any work for improvement in schools.

It is a criminal negligence of the Kejriwal government that during the hearing of a case on Tuesday, the Delhi High Court had to give strict directives to the Municipal Commissioner for improvement.

The court said that it is alarming that out of more than 7 lakh students studying in municipal schools, 2,73,346 students did not receive last year’s book, copy, school uniform, bag, etc. The corporation says they do not have bank accounts, while there are clear instructions from the central government that zero balance accounts can be opened for students, he said.
