We should address Rahul Gandhi as “Rahul Jinnah”, says BJP leader

2 min read

Mysuru: BJP national spokesperson G V L Narasimha Rao flayed All India Congress Committee ( AICC) leader Rahul Gandhi for his party out to stoke sentiments of the people over amended Citizenship Act.

Rao who addressed media during his recent visit to the city said ” Rahul Gandhi and Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan are speaking in the same tone. Rahul Is not a real Gandhi, a fake Gandhi. He has anti- Hindu stand like Pakistan’s founder late Muhammed Ali Jinnah. We will be forced to call him as “Rahul Jinnah”.

Rao alleged that ” It’s a known fact that the Nehru family practices pseudo secularism and is anti- Hindu. Congress is practising anti- Hindu attitude in total”.

Rao defended the decision of the central government to implement Citizenship Act and said ” It conforms with the call for “Sab Ke Saath Sab Ke Vikas”. As the Bill is passed in the parliament it is completely a Central issue, and the State Governments have to toe the line. If any State violates the diktat the Central Government will take a stand”.

It’s only the vested interests that are creating fear in the minds of minority communities and provoking them for violence.

Rao questioned the silence of former prime minister Dr N Manmohan Singh who in 2003 had spoken in favour of Citizenship for minorities who were being harassed at Pakistan and Bangladesh. Former Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi too wanted to give Citizenship for Bangla Hindus settled in that State. Trinamool Congress leaders and CPM leader Prakash Karat too had spoken on similar lines. But all changed their stand later and are misleading people. While BJP since its Jan Sangh days has remained wedded to its stand.

He clarified that the Act has got nothing to do with Indian citizens.

BJP National Vice- president Vinay Sahasrabuddhe said ” The Act was a part of freedom struggle. The history is witness to agreement between India and Pakistan where the countries had vouched to ensure safety of minorities in their countries. However, it’s unfortunate that minorities in Pakistan are facing continuous onslaught with their population reduced to more two per cent. In India, it’s being implemented to extend the ambit of Citizenship, not to exclude anybody”.
