“BJP condemns his comments. History is witness that it was Congress which divided the country in its lust for power…Our government is committed to all-round development of the country. Congress is frustrated and conspiring against this government by levelling all kind of baseless charges,” he said. He alleged that a section of media is also involved in disinformation campaign against the government.
People rejected the Congress in 2014 and have thrown it out of power in many states, he said, insisting that the government is working for ‘sabka saath, sabka vikas’ but is being targeted as a part of conspiracy. He noted that Congress leaders like Mani Shankar Aiyar and Salman Khurshid had targeted the Modi government from Pakistani soil with the former allegedly calling for toppling it.
“The least Congress can do is to not lecture us. We will continue to work for everybody’s development,” he said. Azad had yesterday accused the Modi government of “creating distances” among people in the country, alleging that attempts were being made to spread hatred of the kind witnessed during the partition.
