The Bharatiya Janata Party President J P Nadda on Tuesday alleged that the Congress is suffering from "mental bankruptcy" as it has aligned with political parties on religious lines in the current round of elections in the states.
The Congress has joined hands with the political parties on religious lines be it Kerala, West Bengal or Assam, Nadda said while addressing election rallies in Assam. "At the same time it has entered into alliances with the Left parties in Bengal and Assam but in Kerala, it is fighting against them. This exposes the party''s mental bankruptcy", he said at a poll rally.
He alleged that the Congress has divided the society on diffierent criterion, including religion, but Prime Minister Narendra Modi has ensured that all people get benefits of various schemes on the basis of their need and not on any other considerations.
Modi has always insisted on inclusion of all sections by emphasising on "Sabka saath, sabka vikash aur sabka vishwas" unlike the Congress which had divided society on the basis of caste, class and religion for nearly seventy years after Independence. "Congress todne ka kaam karta hain, aur Modiji jodne ka (Congress divides but Modiji unifies)", he added.
Nadda further said that Congress leaders claim that there have been no development during the last five years in Assam, but "actually they cannot see it, as they have not developed themselves". "Rahul Gandhi accuses us of ''Jumlebaji'' (hypocrisy) but keeps silent about the ''jumlebaji'' by his grandmother, father and mother who only gave slogans and did nothing to solve the problems of the country.
He later said that the commitments made in the party manifesto for Assam will be implemented in letter and spirit as the party makes promises and fulfils them.
