New Delhi: Bhartiya Janata Party received the donation of 2.50 crores from the companies that export buffalo meat according to the financial reports of contributions submitted to the Election Commission of India in the year 2013-2014 and 2014-2015.

Allanasons Ltd, supposedly the biggest meat exporter in India, donated the money before 2014 Lok Sabha elections.

Narendra Modi had targeted Congress in the run-up to the elections in 2014 for “destroying the rivers of milk” and setting up the slaughterhouse.

This revelation goes against the stand BJP took, on the whole, beef issue. The saffron party received a lot of criticism for the Dadri lynching and Kerala house raid.

BJP was very critical of the Congress and other opposition for the money used in the election campaigns.

The Times of India report puts a question mark on the right wing party’s policy on beef. The politicization of the beef issue was one of the biggest news of the year.

From the moment states like Haryana and Maharashtra put a ban on beef, this issue was in the light as much as to the extent that a person lost his life.

This report indicates that the issue over beef is made up according to the political need. While, receiving a donation is not wrong in any condition but ethically it is wrong to criticize others for the same thing.

In Indian politics, it is a trend that parties bash the other party for the same things that they have done in the past or will not hesitate to do in future if it is politically beneficial to their cause.

Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Monday accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his government of being anti-Dalit and said his party will defeat the BJP in 2019 Lok Sabha elections. Gandhi, who led his party’s day-long fast at Rajghat to highlight atrocities against Dalits and other communities, said party workers were protesting against an ideology, a way of thinking.

Rahul Gandhi is against Modi and his rule.

“The atmosphere that has been created in the country, it is due to the ideology of the BJP. BJP’s ideology is to divide the country, crush the Dalits, tribals, minorities. We are against the ideology of the BJP. We are standing against it today, we will stand against it throughout our lives. And we will defeat them in the 2019 elections,” Gandhi told reporters.

Asked about BJP Dalit MPs writing to Modi with their complaints, Gandhi said: “You talk to them in Parliament. They also tell us that Modiji is a casteist person, an anti-Dalit person. He has no place for Dalits in his heart, the whole country knows this. It is not a secret.”

Gandhi attacked BJP President Amit Shah for likening the coming together of opposition parties to “snakes, mongoose, dogs and cats” climbing a tree trunk to save themselves from floods. He said every person in the country was against the BJP.

“Some days back a BJP leader said that opposition members were animals. The truth is that today every person in the country is standing against the government. The approach that this government has against Dalits, tribals, minorities and farmers, we are standing against it,” he said. Gandhi said the country will not accept that Modi government “spreads violence, hatred in the country… We are standing here against this ideology.”
