Patna: The Congress and other opposition parties, which are trying to forge an alliance against the BJP ahead of the 2019 general election, came under attack at a programme organised by the BJP’s state unit to mark four years of the Narendra Modi government at the Centre.
While some of the BJP leaders said such an alliance was nothing, a motley collection of defeated and disappointed people, some attacked Congress president Rahul Gandhi and drew parallels between him and Joseph Goebbels.
Union law minister Ravi Shankar Prasad took the lead by claiming that some defeated and tired people would not be able to stop the caravan of Narendra Modi in 2019. “People who have repeatedly rejected by the people of the country should remember that India of 2018-19 is not that of the 1990s,” Prasad said.
He questioned the Congress president Rahul Gandhi’s act of mentioning about Loya case decision of the Supreme Court in political meetings. “Has he forgotten all norms?”
Senior BJP leader and deputy chief minister Sushil Kumar Modi reminded people of the political instability of the 1990s and mentioned that how the governments of Charan Singh, Chandrashekhar, H.D. Deve Gowda and IK Gujral had been toppled. “People would take lessons from the past and would never allow the same phase of instability to return,” Modi said.
BJP Bihar unit president termed the Congress a selfish party and claimed that it chose the division of the country to make Jawaharlal Nehru the Prime Minister of the country.
Senior BJP leader and road construction minister Nand Kishore Yadav chose to draw an analogy between Rahul Gandhi and his party and Joseph Goebbels, the minister of propaganda in Nazi Germany, who believed that if a lie, if repeatedly told to people, becomes truth.
“I have come to know that Rahul Gandhi is reading books on Hitler. It appears that he has taken inspiration from Goebbels and is spreading lies on issues like reservation and rights of Scheduled Caste people,” Nand Kishore said.
