‘BJP came to power on promise of vikas but is swiftly indulged in spreading nafrat’

New Delhi: Releasing a report card on the 8 years of Modi rule, the Congress last week claimed a staggering 10,000 incidents of ‘communal violence’ took place in the country, Mumbai Mirror reported.

As per the report, the violence incidents have exposed Modi’s alliterative dichotomy of Sabka, Saath Sabka Vikas and Sabka Vishwas.

The report quoting the details from the report card said eight years of BJP government epitomized its eight blatant betrayals: inflation, farmers, employment, recession, small businesses, territorial integrity, social harmony and bleeding economy with sinking rupee against US dollar

At a press conference in its headquarters, the Congress released the Modi government’s report card, titled ‘8 Saal, 8 Chhal; Bhajpa (BJP) Sarkar Vifal,’ before the BJP begins its celebrations on the completion of eight years in office.

The report exposes the Modi government’s lies on eight major subjects, the Mumbai Mirror report said.

Quoting Ajay Makan, a senior Congress leader and former GoI minister, the report said country had seen over 10,000 religious riots in the last eight years with Modi maintaining characteristic silence.

The BJP government came to power on the promise of “vikas’ (development) but it swiftly indulged in spreading ‘nafrat’ (hatred) in order to divert attention from its gigantic failures, he was quoted as saying.

“Everyone knows that wherever violence or riots took place due to religion, BJP has been involved directly or indirectly,” Maken said, as per the report.

In view of recent events such as Ram Navami processions violence and the Gyanvapi mosque case, the report expressed concern over increasing sectarian division.

According to the report, India’s Home Minister told parliament on March 30, 2022, that 3,400 incidences of communal violence occurred between 2016 and 2022. Fifty-three people were killed, the majority of whom were Muslims in Delhi.

The study assessed the Modi government’s performance on a number of fronts, including the economy, national security, foreign policy, inflation, and communal peace.

“One after another, BJP’s bad policies contributed to the devastating slide of the Indian economy,” the report quoted Randeep Surjewala, chairman of the Congress media department, as saying, as he attacked the Modi led GoI for adopting disastrous policies. Because of the BJP’s eight years of mis-governance, what was once the fastest-growing economy is now in shambles?”

The BJP government, according to both the senior Congress politicians, is smashing all records in deceiving its own people.

“Are these the ‘achhe din’ you waited for so long?” Congress said, referring to the Modi’s massive price hikes, mounting unemployment, and Chinese intrusion in the Ladakh area.

The government’s failure to deal with the Coronavirus outbreak was also addressed in the report card, the report added.
