'Congress fosters communal forces then asks vote to defeat them'
Thursday April 10, 2014 1:03 PM, Staff Reporter

Questioning the secular credentials of the Congress party and criticizing its soft hindutva policy, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Wednesday accused the oldest party of the country of harbouring and fostering the communal forces, and then asking votes to defeat them in elections.

"Election after election, Congress repeats the same thing. It first fosters and patronises the communal parties and their leaders, and when elections come, its leaders go to people and ask them to vote for Congress in order to defeat the communal forces", Aleem Faizee, a local AAP leader, said while addressing a public meeting in Malegaon.

The huge public meeting, attended by more than ten thousand people, was the Aam Aadmi Party's first public show of strength in Malegaon to garner support for its official candidate Ansari Nihal Ahmed.

Asking Amrish Patel of Congress to refrain from asking votes in the name of secularism and challenging him to show he is really a secular candidate, Aleem Faizee accused him of having close ties with RSS and BJP.

"Amrish Patel in an interview says Atal Bihari Vajpayee is his hero. He won the first election on BJP ticket. His brother Mukesh Patel contested the assembly election on Shiv-Sena ticket. How can then such a person ask vote in the name secularism?" Aleem Faizee said amid applause.

Mocking the local leaders who are terming him as a weak candidate, who is contesting the election to benefit the BJP, Ansari Nihal Ah said it is the Aam Aadmi Party which is actually challenging the BJP in Dhule and all across the country.

"The Congress party has in fact surrendered to BJP and its prime ministerial candidate Modi. It is the Aam Aadmi Party which is actually challenging the BJP. It is Arvind Kejriwal, who went to Gujarat and exposed Modi's tall claims", Nihal Ansari said.

Rubbishing aside the propaganda that the AAP is dividing secular votes, Nihal Ansari, who walked more than 50 kms to file his nomination papers and met more than 350,000 people en-route, claimed that he had received support from all sections of the society.

"People are fed up of Congress and BJP both. They are now looking for a change. In Aam Aadmi Party they see a hope. They are supporting me irrespective of their religion, caste and creed", he said.

The rally was also addressed by Khursheed Ansari, Tahir Ansari, Ibrahim Inquilabi, Lok Sangharsh Samiti president Ateeque Kamal, Jan Rajya Aghadi leader Rizwan Khan and others.
