BJP is anti-Muslim, a lie spread by Congress: Gadkari
Saturday, July 10, 2010 09:03:56 PM, Agencies
BJP President Nitin Gadkari
Haridwar: BJP President Nitin Gadkari yesterday accused the Congress of launching '' false propaganda that we are against Muslims.''
''If we were against Muslims, then how could we make Dr APJ Abdul Kalam the President of the country,'' Gadkari said addressing a largely attended workers' meeting at the community centre of Bharat Heavy Electricals.
Gadkari alleged that leaders of the Congress in different states have encroached the 'Waqf' properties of about Rs 25,000 crore.
He asked the Muslims how can such a party be trusted to safeguard the interests of the Muslims. He asserted that it is only the BJP which can challenge the Congress.
Pointing towards the dalits and Muslims, he said the BJP was a nationalist party. The Congress was responsible for all the problems confronting the country, he said.
Gadkari said the main problems which confronted the country were threats to internal and external security, rising inflation and spiralling unemployment. He blamed the wrong policies of the Central Government for all these problems.
He alleged that the Central Government was going soft with the terrorists and the Maoists.
''On one hand, the terrorists from across the border are posing threat to the security of the country, on the other hand the menace of Naxalism is assuming alarming proportion in many parts of the country,'' he said.
He further said the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) was a caste-based party and that the BSP and the Samajwadi Party had ahidden alliance with the Congress.
''These parties are haunted by the fear of the cases of corruption, in which a CBI inquiry was going on. So these parties can never stand against the Congress. It is very likely that in future these parties will go with the Congress,'' he said.
Squashing all the speculations regarding the change of guard in Uttarakhand, he said 'Nishank,' who was doing an excellent job, will continue to lead the Government.
