‘Congress has no respect for BR Ambedkar’ : Modi accuses Congess of having no heart for Dalits

Prime Minister Narendra Modi accused the Congress party of indulging in vote bank politics on the last day of campaigning before Karnataka goes to poll on 12th may. The Prime Minister lashed out at Congress for stalling the bill in Parliament which seeks to give Constitutional status to National Commission for Backward Classes.

While communicating with the Bjp karyakartas from Karnataka’s SC/ST, OBC, Minority and Slum Morcha through his app, Modi stated :

“Congress wants the votes of Other Backward Class (OBC) community but they did not allow OBC Commission to get Constitutional status,”

Reflecting upon the paradoxical stance taken by Congress regarding upliftment of Dalits, he stated that Congress has no heart for the marginalized sections and Dalits of our society. He also focused on the lack of effort on the part of Congress to give Ambedkar, his due recognition.

“Congress also has no respect for BR Ambedkar. I urge Congress to tell one work that it has done to honour Ambedkar’s efforts, BJP has always fought to ensure Ambedkar’s gets due respect.” – The Prime Minister said.

He appreciated the work done at the ground level by Morchas and commented on the increasing number of people from the backward section finding commonalities with the BJP.

“I appreciate the work you do for the party. Morchas play a vital role in bringing a new generation in our fold. BJP has the highest number of MPs belonging to SC and ST communities. More and more people of these communities are connecting with BJP.” – Modi added.

Prime Minister Modi appealed to the workers to stay firm in their resolve to better the lives of the backward sections of the society and work tirelessly to achieve the said goal.

“I appeal to you (BJP workers) to visit homes of SC/ST, OBC and minorities and assure them that BJP will work for their welfare. We need to work tirelessly for the welfare of deprived and women,” – Modi stated.

The incumbent government has made the SC/ST prevention Act more stringent, Prime Minister lauded the said step by commenting –

“Our government has made SC/ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Act more stringent and increased the offences listed in the Act from 22 to 47. Stand up and Mudra Yojanas are helping to make SC/ST/OBC and women financially empowered,”

The Karnataka assembly elections will be held in 223 out of 224 constituencies on 12th may with the counting and announcement of results taking place on 15th may.
