Azad asks people to reject divisive politics
Udhampur: Leader of opposition in Rajya Sabha and senior Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad said that BJP is trying to take credit on the achievements and sacrifices of armed forces, which no government in the past has done for vote bank politics.
Addressing series of election rallies at Pancheri, Latti, Dudu, Basantgarh and Gordi in Udhampur district today, Azad lashed out at BJP Government and Modi for taking political mileage out of achievements and sacrifices of armed forces, while stating that no government in the past has done so, although there were numerous achievements of our forces during previous governments including division of Pakistan and creation of Bangladesh, during the regime of Indira Gandhi.
He said that forces belong to the nation and their achievements also belong to nation and not any particular political party and it is wrong to take credit for their achievements by the ruling party, as the achievement goes to entire nation.
Azad also launched scathing attack on the BJP for divisive politics for vested political interests. He said that India is a pluralistic country with diversity and fundamental factor for our unity lies in respecting the urges and aspirations of the diversity in our country.
He said that India will remain united and strong by respecting the sentiments of the diversity and carrying each and every section together, not merely by hollow slogans.
He said that people should question the BJP and test their performance on the basis of promises made during last Lok Sabha elections which have turned to be ‘jumlas.’
He appealed to the people to reject the forces of divide and hate and vote for Congress to maintain the atmosphere of peace and harmony which is paramount for unity of nation.
