Congress observes day-long fast across India for communal harmony, BJP mocks

Rahul-Gandhi-Viral-Video-That-Was-One-Heck-of-a-Shot Rahul Gandhi concludes phase six of his campaign in Karnataka

Criticising, BJP National President Amit Shah over his comment, "To counter the Narendra Modi wave in the country, snakes, cats, and mongooses have all come together to fight a united battle against us in elections,"which he made during the Foundation Day programme of BJP, Patole said that for Shah the people in country appear like animals".

Terming Rahul Gandhi's fast at Rajghat as a "farce", BJP described the Congress' decision to keep the 1984 anti-Sikh riots accused Sajjan Kumar and Jagdish Tytler away from the main dais as its "admission of guilt". Modi ji does not have any place in his heart for Dalits.

Congress President Rahul Gandhi led the fast at Rajghat with other Delhi State Congress Party leaders today morning whereas the fast observed in various states including different cities and towns were led by state Congress presidents and local leaders. He further said that the Congress party will support and stand with Dalits. BJP's ideology is to divide the country, crush the Dalits, tribals, minorities.

Pratyush Kanth, the Delhi BJP In-charge of Media, Social Media and IT Cell, took to Twitter and shared a picture in which Congress leaders, including Ajay Maken, Haroon Yusuf and Arvinder Singh Lovely, can be seen eating at a restaurant in New Delhi. Asked about BJP's Dalit MPs writing to Modi, he said, "When you talk to them in Parliament, they tell us that Modi ji is a casteist and is "anti-Dalit".


"The Congress has fallen into its own trap. (It was) an attempt by his party to fast track his politics to burnish his credentials despite people rejecting him time and again", he told reporters.

Gandhi said the country will not accept that Modi government "spreads violence, hatred in the country". It was from 10.30 am to 4.30 pm and the picture was taken before 8 am.

Citing figures of anti-Dalit violence in five years of the Congress rule in the poll-bound Karnataka, he said the state had reported 9,080 cases crimes against the community and over 358 Dalits were killed. "And, we will defeat them in the 2019 elections", Gandhi told reporters. "The approach that this government has against Dalits, tribals, minorities and farmers, we are standing against it", he said. BJP leader Harish Khurana, the son of the former Delhi chief minister Madan Lal Khurana, tweeted the picture and said that the Congress leaders have called the public for observing fast at Rajghat, whereas they are having Chhola Bhaturas at a restaurant.
