Home Media "If 90% Muslims don't vote for us, we will be in big trouble", Congress leader Kamalnath seen saying in video

“If 90% Muslims don’t vote for us, we will be in big trouble”, Congress leader Kamalnath seen saying in video

Congress has used numerous tricks to peddle their soft-Hindutva approach in the upcoming assembly elections.

The Republic TV has come out with a video clip wherein Congress veteran leader, Kamal Nath is heard resolving to use the Muslim card, weeks before the Madhya Pradesh state elections. In a ‘behind-closed-door-meeting’, Kamal Nath is perceived saying that ‘only the Muslim votes can make the Congress party win’.

Republic TV accessed the full controversial video, days after BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra released a video clip of Madhya Pradesh Congress chief Kamal Nath entailing threats against Hindus and demanding Muslim votes during a private party meeting within the closed doors in Indore. He also talks about laying down strategies for getting maximum Muslim votes in the Madhya Pradesh polls which is due on November 28.

In the highly controversial video, the senior Congress leader asserted, “If we did not get 90 percent votes of the Muslim community then we will face a huge loss. We have the numbers. You know where the Muslims votes. You have to take care where those votes were cast. If we have received fewer votes then what are the reasons behind it. You have to postmortem the reasons behind it.”

While addressing the gathering in the meeting, the senior Congress leader also made statements threatening the Hindus and RSS. Furthermore, in the video, Kamal Nath vehemently asks the Muslim leaders in the room to find out why members of the Muslim community didn’t come out to vote in sufficient numbers in the last assembly elections, which he attributes to the Congress’ loss.

He declares that even 80 percent of the Muslim vote would be insufficient for the Congress and that only 90 percent of the votes can save them. To enable this, the leaders should do everything they can, go polling station to polling station, to find the voters. He adds that all this should be done before the election code of conduct comes into force.

In another controversial video, the senior Congress leader was seen threatening that the government officials of dire consequences if they support BJP. He was seen stating in a rally that when Congress comes to power after the December 11 results, the government staffers would have to face his (Kamalnath’s) wrath.

This video which appears at the time when the Congress is busy dialing up its Hindutva image in Madhya Pradesh unmasking the deceptive side of the Congress party. As the Madhya Pradesh polls are around the corner, Congress is increasing its effort to project its ‘soft-Hindutva’ image, in fact perhaps attempting to drop the ‘soft’ altogether.

After Rahul Gandhi’s close aid Randeep Singh Surjewala had declared that Congress has ‘Brahmin Samaj’s DNA’ in its blood, and State Congress president Kamal Nath promised that a Gaushala will be built at every Panchayat in the state, the party has decided to capitalize on the recent pilgrimage by Rahul Gandhi to Kailash Mansarovar. The party has been trying to do an image makeover of the Gandhi family scion by describing him as a Janeu dhaari Hindu and as a Shiv Bhakt, or devotee of Lord Shiva.

The party has put up posters with photographs showing Rahul Gandhi worshipping a Shiv Ling, with a snow-capped Himalayan mountain peak in the background.

In fact a week back Congress had released its 112-page manifesto called ‘Vachan Patra’. Continuing with its soft-Hindutva, Congress in its Madhya Pradesh manifesto has made several promises in that direction.

Congress’ Madhya Pradesh manifesto promises setting up of Gaushalas at all village panchayats. It also promises construction of Ram Path and a Narmada Parikrama route. Congress has also promised to promote Sanskrit.

With the state assembly elections looming close, the video might mean trouble for the party.
