BJP Chief J P Nadda on Monday came down heavily upon the Congress party for burning the effigy of Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Punjab. He termed the act ‘shameless’.
Taking to Twitter, he said, “Combination of despondency and shamelessness is dangerous. Congress possesses both. Empty rhetoric of decency and democracy by the Mother is ‘complemented’ by live demonstrations of politics of hate, anger, lies and aggression by the Son. Double standards galore!”
Nadda said that Rahul Gandhi-directed drama is shameful but not unexpected.
“The Rahul Gandhi-directed drama of burning PM’s effigy in Punjab is shameful but not unexpected. After all, the Nehru-Gandhi dynasty has NEVER respected the office of the PM. This was seen in the institutional weakening of the PM’s authority during the UPA years of 2004-2014,” he said.
“If there is one party whose conduct reeks of disgust, it is Congress. Atrocities against SC/ST communities are at an all time high in Rajasthan, women are unsafe in Rajasthan as well as Punjab, and their Punjab Ministers are committing scholarships scams.
