Aditya-L1 Mission: BJP eating fruits of tree grown by Cong, says B.K. Hariprasadtext_fields
Kalaburagi: Congress leader and Member of the Legislative Council (MLC) B.K. Hariprasad on Saturday slammed the BJP government, saying that it is eating the fruits from the tree sowed and grown by the Congress party.
The Congress leader was speaking to reporters at Kalaburagi on the launch of India’s maiden solar mission Aditya-L1.
He stated that it was the Congress government that allotted land for the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) in Bengaluru, adding that the Congress party has firm belief on scientific grounds, unlike the BJP which goes with blind beliefs.
He further said that the scientists who worked for the Chandrayaan-3 mission belong to the backward classes. But, when it comes to power, only a few communities are enjoying it. Let people from all communities get the opportunity.
Commenting on the 'one nation one election' slogan by BJP, Hariprasad maintained that after the saffron party came to power, there is no dearth of statements. They are destroying the diversity in the country. BJP is taking decisions against the wishes of Swami Vivekananda, he charged.
“In coming days, BJP might come out with a slogan of one nation, one leader. There is a necessity to conduct the elections without using the Enforcement Directorate (ED),” Hariprasad stated.
Talking about his exclusion from the cabinet, Hariprasad said that he was a loyal Congressman.
“My protest is not to ask for the post of a minister. The protest is aimed at getting opportunities for small communities. I am ready to come to the streets for the agitation over the issue. People should learn from the late PM Indira Gandhi. From peon to top posts, employees and officers belonging to one community can’t be filled, opportunities must be given to people of all classes,” he said.
