Nadda Queries Congress’ Silence on Sanatana Dharma Attack:
BJP National President, J.P. Nadda, raised questions on the Congress leadership’s silence regarding recent attacks on Sanatan Dharma by some members of the I.N.D.I.A alliance. Leader launched his party’s second ‘Parivartan Yatra’ in north Chhattisgarh and noted a pattern in the attacks on Sanatan Dharma by I.N.D.I.A. the alliance constituents.
He highlighted that after an Opposition alliance meeting in Mumbai on September 1, on September 3, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M.K. Stalin’s son, Udayanidhi, made derogatory remarks about Sanatan Dharma. On September 4, AICC President Mallikarjun Kharge’s son, Priyank, also made offensive comments about the religion.
Nadda criticized Congress leaders Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi for their silence on the issue, suggesting that they lacked the courage to address it. He accused Congress of using its allies to advance its agenda of attacking Sanatan Dharma.
Nadda questioned whether the constitution permits anyone to denigrate a religion and criticized the I.N.D.I.A. alliance for transitioning from a ‘shop of love’ to a ‘shop of hate.’
Additionally, Nadda criticized the Bhupesh Baghel government for failing to fulfill its promises to the people and blocking several welfare schemes from the Centre, impacting women and farmers. He highlighted the state government’s refusal to implement the Prime Minister Awas Yojana, which deprived the poor of owning their homes.
The ‘Parivartan Yatra’ is part of a mass outreach campaign and is scheduled to conclude on September 28 in Bilaspur, Chhattisgarh, with Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressing BJP workers on that day.
