Daijiworld Media Network – Udupi (HB/EP)
Udupi, May 10: “BJP has grown to sufficient heights but Congress has not grown due to internal politics. Congress is concerned only about one family. BJP has been speaking about national thinking in all its programmes. But Congress is saying Indira Gandhi ki jai, Rahul Gandhi ki jai, Sonia Gandhi ki jai, Priyanka Gandhi ji jai or Vadra ki jai. They do not have national thinking. Congress has died under this family,” said BJP state president, MP Nalin Kumar Kateel.
He was speaking after inaugurating the BJP Karnataka state office bearers' meeting at Kidiyoor hotel here on Tuesday, May 10.
“Authority in Congress can be obtained only when one goes around the Gandhi family. Corruption and terrorism are the contributions of Congress. Stirring up controversy when not in authority, is the birth quality of Congress," he alleged.
“Udupi is known as BJP’s power centre. But the Hijab controversy began here recently. BJP controls such negative elements as it has the power. The party gives befitting replies to issues like Hijab, Azaan and Halal as it considers India as one and great. BJP does not have the politics of ruling according to its whims and fancies. It does not believe in the politics of hatred but has the governments which arrest those who destroy peace. Congress is defeated in Punjab and has become a useless party. Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi do not have the capacity to contest elections. People from Congress have come out and joined BJP since the Modi government came to power. Authority is not the only intention of the BJP. It has the aim of developing individuals and the country. There is not even a single Naxal incident in the state since BJP came to power," Kateel claimed.
Claiming that Congress has the fear of BJP winning the elections he said that Siddaramaiah and D K Shivakumar were scared of being unemployed permanently. "They are creating unrest in the state every now and then to show their presence. Congress is provoking minorities and Muslims to act against us,” he said.
Udupi district in charge minister S Angara also addressed the meeting.
MLA K Raghupathi Bhat, minister of energy, Kannada and culture, V Sunil Kumar, Kaup Vidhan Sabha MLA Lalaji R Mendon, BJP Udupi district president Kuyilady Suresh Nayak, Mangaluru division in charge Uday Kumar Shetty and others were present.
