JP Nadda, national head of the Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP), attacked Rahul Gandhi and other officials of the Congress party on Friday, accusing them of demeaning the OBC population. Nadda also chastised the party for allegedly disrespecting OBCs, as well as its leaders’ remarks about Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
“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,” Nadda said.
Further attacking Rahul Gandhi, Nadda said, “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’. Congress leaders are still living in their egos. This is all unfortunate,” the BJP chief said.
“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’,” Nadda slammed.
On March 23, a Surat court condemned Congress leader Rahul Gandhi to two years in prison in a defamation case filed against him over his remark about the ‘Modi surname,’ with Congress colleagues rallying in his support.
Rahul Gandhi made the remark “how come all the thieves have Modi as a common surname” during a Lok Sabha election rally in Kolar, Karnataka, in April 2019.
The judge granted Rahul Gandhi release on a surety bond and suspended his sentence for 30 days to allow him to appeal to higher courts. JP Nadda was speaking after virtually inaugurating party offices en several districts throughout Telangana and Andhra Pradesh.
Nadda also criticised the Bharat Rashtra Samiti (BRS) party and said, “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.”
Nadda also slammed the TRS party for its MLC Kavitha’s involvement in a liquor scam and urged them not to become BRS but to take the Voluntary Retirement Scheme (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 said.
The BJP state president, MP Bandi Sanjay Kumar, Union Minister G Kishan Reddy, Parliamentary Board members, MP Dr K Lakshman, party state affairs in-charge Tarun Chugh, co-in-charge Arvind Menon, and other party members also attended the inauguration ceremonies virtually.
