Rahul Gandhi and other officials of the Congress party came under fire from JP Nadda, the national president of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), on Friday for allegedly disparaging the OBC minority. JP Nadda also criticised the party for what he saw to be its leaders’ derogatory remarks on Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the OBC. “Congress leaders have forgotten the dignity of words and say, ‘Modi Teri Kabr Khudegi’. See the language of a party which had a national character. This party has lost all shame. Even when it has shrunk to this level,” JP Nadda stated.
JP Nadda continued to criticise Rahul Gandhi, saying “His (Rahul Gandhi) attitude towards OBC is not good. He uses disrespectful words for the community. What kind of party and leader is this?” “Congress has insulted the OBC Community and the nation will not forgive it,” he added. “From Jammu and Kashmir to Kutch people are saying ‘Modi tera Kamal Khilaiga’. Leaders in Congress are still consumed by their egos. All of this is regrettable, the BJP leader stated. “Rahul Gandhi refuses to apologise. Court asked him to apologise but he refused to do it. When the court punished him, he calls it ‘injustice’. Rahul Gandhi Ji, you are arrogant. ‘Rassi jal gayi, bal nahi gaya’,” he slammed.
Rahul Gandhi, the leader of the Congress, was found guilty of defaming the Prime Minister of India by a Surat court on March 23. Despite the Congress leaders’ outcry in his defence, Gandhi was given a two-year prison sentence. Rahul Gandhi said, “How come all the thieves have Modi as the common surname,” in April 2019 during a Lok Sabha election rally in Kolar, Karnataka. In order to give Rahul Gandhi time to appeal to higher courts, the court granted him bail with a surety and suspended the sentence for 30 days.
Speaking after virtually opening party offices in numerous areas throughout Telangana and Andhra Pradesh, JP Nadda did thus. The Bharat Rashtra Samiti (BRS) party was also criticised by JP Nadda, who stated, “BRS party stands for ‘Bhrashtachar Rishwat Sarkar’. This is the image of the Telangana government. When Telangana was made it was a surplus state but now the state is in debt.”
In addition, JP Nadda criticised the TRS party for having MLC Kavitha involved in a spirits scam and recommended them to opt for the Voluntary Retirement Program rather than BRS (VRS). “I am glad to announce that, today, the BJP has around 500 offices across the country, which are dedicated to the Party workers. Plus, 108 new offices are being established with another 123 in the pipeline,” Nadda stated. The BJP state president, MP Bandi Sanjay Kumar, Union Minister G Kishan Reddy, members of the Parliamentary Board, MP Dr. K. Lakshman, the party’s in-charge of state affairs Tarun Chugh, co-in-charge Arvind Menon, and other party members all virtually attended the inauguration ceremonies.
