JAIPUR: Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot on Tuesday accused the BJP of indulging in the politics of religion, while saying Congress always talks about religious equality.
Today, the BJP is doing politics in the name of religion.
Using religion to gain power is one thing, but bringing all religions is a difficult task that Congress successfully accomplished after independence.
Congress always talks about the equality of all religions, Gehlot said.
“These people (BJP) are asking what Congress has done in 70 years? Modern India today is the gift of Congress who believes in ‘sarva dharma sambhav’. They are talking about making India Congress free. I’ve said many times this will never happen because Congress is in every house,” Gehlot told reporters here.
Asked about the likely outcome of the Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections, he said: “This country was captured by forces that never believed in democracy. They never believed in it in the past. nor will they do so in the future,” he said. targeting the BJP.
“But if you do politics in the name of religion or caste, you can see what kind of situation arises. There is no place in a democracy to provoke people in the name of religion,” did he declare.
Sending his greetings on International Women’s Day on Tuesday, he said, “Now is the time to talk about women’s empowerment. all kinds of measures to empower women.”
