New Delhi: The Narendra Modi government has proved “just as terrible” as the UPA regime, it replaced Delhi’s ruling Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) said on Monday.

A resolution passed at its National Council meeting also dubbed the Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) strategy of “manufactured intolerance … a grave threat to the Idea of India”.


In its strongest ever attack on the Modi government, the AAP said people replaced in 2014 “the most corrupt government in Indian history with an alternative that promised development and good governance.

In the past 18 months, that alternative, the BJP-led NDA (National Democratic Alliance), has proved just as terrible.

The resolution said corruption pervaded all levels of the central government, economic growth was lackluster, employment generation was negligible, social-sector spending had fallen, and the agrarian economy had been left to fend for itself.

Politically, the BJP has stayed true to its past and gone on to try and tear the social fabric that delicately binds Indian society, added AAP.

The real agenda of the BJP is intolerance and the purpose is dividing society for political gains.

The AAP said this “manufactured intolerance” had been rejected by people, first in Delhi and then in Bihar.

But BJP’s continued attempts to make it the center-piece of its political strategy is a grave threat to the Idea of India.

The AAP, which swept to power in Delhi in February after crushing the BJP, vowed to “politically oppose all corrupt and communal forces, which in our view, are the primary danger to Indian society”.

On a proposal moved by Sarita Singh, one of its 67 legislators, and seconded by Delhi unit leader Dilip Pandey, the National Council adopted three resolutions.

It said the years since an anti-corruption movement evolved into the AAP “have been a great learning experience”.

Insisting people believe that only the AAP could provide corruption-free governance and adhere to its basic tenets of Swaraj, secularism and social harmony, the AAP pledged to spread and deepen its party organization.

The AAP also accused the Modi government of diluting the country’s federal structure.

India can only prosper as a collective if democratically-elected individual state governments are allowed to function.

“Since the advent of the present NDA government, state governments are being undermined at the behest of the central government. ”

Instead of cooperative federalism, the country is witnessing selective
targeting of non-NDA state governments through the offices of Governors and Lt. Governors.

The AAP said it will build public opinion and oppose the Modi government’s
“totalitarian attitude towards non-NDA state governments”.

Tokyo Olympics 2020 Indian wrestler Ravi Kumar enter semi finals.

Indian wrestler Ravi Kumar (57kg) and Deepak Punia (86kg) enjoyed fruitful outings at the Tokyo Olympic Games as they secured semifinal berths in their respective weight categories at the Makuhari Messe on Wednesday.

On the opening day of the wrestling competition, Ravi Kumar defeated Bulgaria's Georgi Vangelov 14-4 on technical superiority to reach the last-four in the men's 57kg category, while compatriot Deepak Punia overcame China's Zushen Lin 6-3 on points to advance to the semifinals.

Ravi Kumar will take on Nurislam Sanayev of Kazakhstan in the last-four, while Punia will be up against David Morris Taylor of the USA.

Earlier, Ravi Kumar had won his opening-round bout by technical superiority against Colombia's Oscar Tigreros to secure a quarterfinal spot. Competing in the Round-of-16 bout against the Colombian wrestler, the 23-year-old Ravi Kumar, who is making his Olympic debut, showed no nerves as he dominated the bout to win by technical superiority (13-2).

Ravi Kumar landed attack after attack and went 13-2 up, winning the bout by technical superiority with minutes to spare. In wrestling, building up a 10-point lead over the opponent results in a victory by technical superiority.

India's 86kg freestyle wrestler Deepak Punia showed no signs of the niggle that had forced him to pull out of the Poland Open Ranking Series in Warsaw in June, as he defeated Nigeria's Ekerekeme Agiomor on technical superiority to secure a quarterfinal berth.

He got his Olympic campaign to a fine start as he was in control from the start of the bout and hardly ever allowed his Nigerian opponent any room to maneuver his moves, finally winning with a 12-1 on technical superiority.

Punia, who had also suffered an elbow injury just before the Games, was slow at the start but came into his own as the bout progressed, inflicting takedowns at regular intervals to earn points.

The Indian wrestler eased into a 4-1 lead at the break and extended his lead comfortably in the second period.

Punia, the silver medallist from the 2019 world wrestling championships, then set up a clash with China's Lin Zushen in the quarterfinals and defeated him 6-3.
