Former Karnataka chief minister and Congress MP M Veerappa Moily is facing serious charges of plagiarism. In an article submitted to a newspaper, Moily has allegedly lifted ideas from another piece which was published last month.

The newspaper has taken the article off the website as it is investigating charges of plagiarism against him.

The BJP on Saturday slammed the opposition party by stating that it showed that the party is bereft of original ideas.

“Congress party ran out of idea when it was in government. They have no original ideas even when they are in opposition. That is why Veerappa Moily is having to borrow others idea and resort to plagiarism as he struggles to find faults with the Modi government,” said Siddharth Nath Singh, member of the BJP national executive, as reported by TOI.

The article referred to the cutting down of social spending by the Modi government.

Congress refrained from commenting on the accusations. However, as reported by TOI, Moily acknowledged that he used a few paragraphs as inputs from another article and admitted that he should have acknowledged the fact in his article.

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.”
