Jaipur, June 23 (KMS): Mounting an attack on the BJP and the RSS, Rajasthan Chief Minister, Ashok Gehlot, has said that the BJP members are provoking people to create communal disharmony in the country. He questioned if India becomes Hindu Nation, will it remain so?
Gehlot said, I would like to ask BJP, RSS leaders, how long will you keep instigating people in the name of Hinduism? He said, it is one thing to make a country in the name of a religion, but to maintain it is another thing. He maintained that countries can be formed in the name of religion, but it is not a guarantee that it will remain united.
The Rajasthan Chie Minister said, today they (BJP, RSS leaders) are provoking people by talking Hindu Rashtra. He said, recently Indian Homed Minister, Amit Shah spoke 2 words about Hindi and the entire South India stood up. He said that the Amit Shah had to withdraw the words saying he did not mean that.
“When the people of the country can be provoked in the name of language, then you can think what can be their thinking in the name of religion? Can this country stay united in the name of religion, in the name of Hindu religion?” he said.
Gehlot said, today, the BJP is embracing the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes saying that they are Hindus. “I have been watching them since childhood when it was Jan Sangh. These people merged with the Janata Party, when Indira Gandhi was sent to jail then and now as Bharatiya Janata Party I have seen that they never embraced the people of the Scheduled Caste,” he added.
