Questions its secular credentials for demolishing temples & shedding tears on Karauli, Jahangirpuri
JAMMU: Kavinder Gupta, former Dy Chief Minister of J&K and senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader has slammed the Congress Party for its anti-Hindu policies and taking anti Hindu stance on every issue without going into the merits of the case.
He said that it is quite surprising that Congress has failed to realize the ground situation despite people across the country having rejected Congress in the elections.
Addressing media persons at Party Headquarters in Jammu, the former Deputy Chief Minister flanked by Ranbir Singh Pathania, Ex MLA Ramnagar and Vikas Chowdhary, State Secretary BJP, J&K, strongly condemned the demolition of 300 years old temple in Rajasthan and the comments made by the Congress leaders on this volatile issue. He said that it is an open secret that Congress stands totally decimated and is now on its last legs. He reminded the Congress of its devastating loss in Assembly elections in five states including Punjab.
Accusing the Congress of maintaining double standards by targeting Hindu temples in Rajasthan, Kavinder Gupta said that this clearly establishes beyond any doubt that Congress is hell-bent upon taking revenge against Hindus even in areas where Hindus voted for BJP in elections to Municipal Councils.
He said that this is further vindicated by the fact that the district administration extended full support in the demolition drive against the religious place of Hindus.
The former Dy Chief Minister, while castigating the Chief Minister of Rajasthan and the Congress Party along with its High Command in Delhi, asserted that the Rajasthan Govt cannot wash its hands off so easily from the entire exercise. He said that it is really shameful for Congress that after conducting the anti-Hindu drive in Rajasthan, it is shamelessly coming up with lame excuses to malign the BJP which has established itself as the most proactive votary of Hindutva. He demanded a judicial inquiry into the Temple demolition issue in Rajasthan.
While coming down heavily on the anti-Hindu agenda of Congress, Kavinder Gupta said that the prevention of secularism by Congress stands totally exposed today with its shedding tears on Karauli and Jahangirpuri and at the same time hurting the faith and sentiments of Hindus by demolishing their temples and shops even without serving notices prior to demolition as required under law. Is this the secularism of Congress,” he questioned.
