Congress Hates Dalits, Backward Classes, Tribals; Does Vote Bank Politics In Name Of Secularism: PM Modi

Date:

Betul: Prime Minister Narendra Modi accused the Congress of undermining the principles of social justice in the name of secularism during an election rally in Betul, Madhya Pradesh on Wednesday. He alleged that the Congress government in Karnataka had attempted to strip backward classes of their reservation rights by categorizing the entire Muslim community as Other Backward Classes (OBCs). Furthermore, he accused the Congress “hating” Dalits, backward classes and tribals.

“The dangerous hidden agenda of Congress has now been exposed. Congress, which does vote bank politics in the name of secularism, has also killed the basic spirit of social justice. Now it has become clear how much the Congress party hates Dalits, backward classes and tribals,” he alleged.

“When the Congress government was formed at the Centre, they first introduced religion-based reservation in Andhra Pradesh. But then Congress was not completely successful in its plans. Congress still wants to play that game. To snatch away the share of reservation that OBCs get in Karnataka from the OBC quota, Congress made all the Muslims of the state OBC. This action of Congress is a warning signal for the OBC community of the entire country,” he added.

PM Modi also referred to remarks of Telangana Chief Minister A Revanth Reddy that Congress will protect four per cent reservation for Muslims.

“A few days ago Telangana CM said that he will provide reservation to the Muslims. Congress can go to any extent to make their vote bank happy,” he said.

PM Modi said that the constitution does not provide for religion-based reservation and accused the Congress of working against the work done by BR Ambedkar.

He alleged that Congress has a “hidden agenda” and wants to take away reservation for SC, STs and OBCs and give it to its “special vote bank”.

PM Modi also alleged that Congress has started preparations to strengthen its vote bank by snatching away the property of the people of the country.

“If someone has more than one car, motorcycle, one house, then Congress says that they will make such a law that the Congress government will take it away…They will bring such a law that you can keep only one house,” he said.

PM Modi has been making sharp attacks on the Congress in his election rallies. Talking about the work done by his government in the past 10 years in his speech in Betul, PM Modi said it is the vote of people for the BJP that helped in the construction of a grand Ram Temple in Ayodhya.

“It is the vote that has guaranteed the country’s rapid development in the last 10 years. Your one vote made India the fifth largest economy in the world. We were at number 11 in the world and in such a short time we reached number 5…It happened because of your vote, this is the power of your vote. Your one vote made India proud in foreign countries, your one vote stunned the enemy who was eyeing us from the border and it is your one vote that installed Ramlala in the grand temple in Ayodhya after 500 years,” PM Modi said.

Voting for Lok Sabha polls in Madhya Pradesh will be conducted in four phases, with the next three phases of voting scheduled for April 26, May 7 and May 13. Madhya Pradesh has a total of 29 Lok Sabha constituencies, making it the sixth-largest state in terms of members it sends to the Lower House.

The first phase of voting for 102 parliamentary constituencies spread over 21 states and union territories was held on April 19 with a voter turnout of nearly 64 per cent.
