Bharat "Todo" Yatra, not "Jodo": JP Nadda slams Rahul's triptext_fields
Gujarat: On the backdrop of the Congress' Bharat Jodo Yatra, BJP president JP Nadda lashed out at Rahul Gandhi that his party could only divide the nation instead of uniting it. Addressing an election rally on Friday in south Gujarat's Navsari town, he said that he wondered whether Congress is on Bharat Jodo Yatra or Bharat Todo Yatra.
"I wonder if Congress has embarked on Bharat Jodo Yatra or Bharat Todo Yatra. Their leaders are saying unite India. But what do they do in real life? Their leader Rahul Gandhi went to JNU in Delhi and supported those who shout slogans in favour of Afzal Guru, the mastermind behind the Parliament attack," Nadda said.
He alleged, "When Rahul Gandhi was in JNU in support of those who raised such slogans, some people also raised the slogan 'Bharat Tere Tukde Honge, Insha Allah Insha Allah'. Your (Rahul Gandhi's) statement yesterday on freedom fighter Veer Savarkar was also condemnable. It shows they (Congress) can only break the country, not unite it."
Further, he claimed that Arvind Kejriwal's Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) had lost its deposit on 349 of the 350 seats it fought in the Uttar Pradesh Assembly polls, adding that AAP is no "new party".
"Mark my words, they will lose their deposit on all the 67 seats they fought in the recent Himachal Pradesh polls," he was positive.
When BJP worked on a "mission" mode for development, its rivals worked for the "commission" (for kickbacks).
Later, he praised Prime Minister Narendra Modi's leadership in the front coronavirus and said that India developed two vaccines in mere nine months, successfully immunizing its whole population against the pandemic.
Nadda said, "We even sent vaccines to nearly 100 countries, including 38 countries, free of cost. Now, India has become a country of givers and not takers."
He listed that 15 All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) were built under Modi's rule, including the one in Gujarat's Rajkot, while it was only one under first PM Jawaharlal Nehru.
Rakesh Desai is contesting under the BJP ticket in the Navsari Assembly consistency, while Gujarat is going to Assembly polls on December 1, and counting will happen on the 8th.
