Mumbai: Maharashtra’s Leader of Opposition Radhakrishna Vikhe Patil on Tuesday urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to break his silence over the growing issue of intolerance which is assuming serious proportions day by day.

The PM’s silence over the issue is making it more serious with each passing day. It is time for him to speak out and try to understand why the artistes-literary figures are feeling insecure,

In a statement, the veteran Congress leader and Leader of Opposition in the state assembly said that in the recent past, intolerance has vitiated the country’s atmosphere with artistes and litterateurs experiencing a sense of fear.

Referring to Bollywood actor Aamir Khan’s statements on Monday, Vikhe-Patil said he was “not wrong” as an atmosphere of terror was being felt in the country.

Moreover, many literary figures have returned their government awards and attempts are being made by certain forces to further vitiate the atmosphere and Modi’s silence was making them bolder.

“However, since the majority of the people of the country are secular-minded and tolerant, they will teach them a lesson at the appropriate time.”

Aamir Khan’s statement is of an extreme nature, and all must unite to fight such forces seriously given the present situation,

Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis on Tuesday declined to comment on Aamir Khan’s remarks, while Environment Minister Ramdas Kadam termed the comments as “treason” and said the actor was welcome to go to Pakistan if he felt so insecure in India.

Modi accuses Congress

The ongoing battle between the two largest Indian political parties is intensifying with each passing day. Adding to the same, PM Modi on Thursday said that Rahul Gandhi led Congress party is spreading lies about him through the foreign agencies.

He blamed the Congress for being hesitant to talk on development and always trying to divide the society. He said, “If you analyze last few elections, you will realize how a few political parties have indulged only in dividing societies on religious lines. They give lollipops to a community before elections and then forget them.”
Modi said that this is the working strategy of Congress where they play with the emotions of communities. They act of being sympathetic towards them and then forget about them after the elections.

“They will never give account of their works. They keep indulging in dividing the society. The political purity cannot be established in the country till the Congress culture is finished from the mainstream.” he added.
Slapping Congress for spreading “rampant” lies, Modi alerted the workers not to get trapped by the opposition’s strategies.

“Congress has resorted to rampant lying after a series of defeats in elections. Earlier, the Congress used to spread lies over five to 10 issues they raised. Now out of 50 issues, 40-45 are based on lies,” the Prime Minister said.

Modi did not stop here. He advised his karykartas to hire foreign agencies to deceive the planning of the Congress party. He said that other political parties do not talk about development while BJP fights only on issues. He added, “This was unacceptable to those parties which only concentrated on division. We govern and also fight elections based only on development model.” (IANS)
