New Delhi: BJP chief Amit shah in his recent comments, exclaimed that BJP has given top posts to the leaders from backward classes and also accused the Congress of working against the interest of OBCs.

Recently he was addressing delegates from the newly constituted OBC Morcha of the party. The delegates have come here for the Morcha meet from 19 different states. The purpose of this meet as stated by Amit shah was to ensure constitutional rights to the OBCs without causing any social disharmony.

Mr. Shah said “We alone had the courage to choose a person from a poor, backward family for the prime minister’s post. Today he is making India proud globally.”

Regarding the Mandal commission, Mr. Shah said “It was constituted by the Janta government, of which we were a part. Its recommendations were also accepted not by a congress government but by the Jan Morcha, which we had supported”.

Mr. Shah said the main aim of this OBC Morcha was to ensure the rights to OBC sans caste conflict and also to reach out to the most backward castes among the OBCs.

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.”
