Dehradun: Accusing the Congress of resorting to "politics of appeasement", Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Saturday called upon the people of Uttarakhand to thwart its plan in the February 14 assembly elections.
'Establishment of Muslim University'
Addressing several rallies in Uttarakhand on the last day of campaigning, Shah said the Congress' plan to set up Muslim universities was part of its policy of appeasement. He said that Samajwadi Party, Bahujan Samaj Party and Congress have been wiped out in the first phase of polling in Uttar Pradesh and something similar is going to happen in Uttarakhand as well. Shah said that Uttarakhand is a place of leisure for the Congress but for the BJP it is the soul of India's culture.
Shah asked questions to the people
Shah also asked the people present in the public meeting whether he wants a government giving holiday for Friday prayers or a government giving holiday on Egas. It is noteworthy that former Chief Minister Harish Rawat had allegedly ordered one and a half hour leave for Friday prayers during his tenure as Chief Minister. He said that development is not a matter of Congress's bus.
Targeting Congress leaders
He said, 'Congress can only do things like sending Rohingya Muslims to the hills, setting up Muslim universities. It has always divided people on caste, class, regional and religious lines. Fearing, he got himself vaccinated.
Taunt on Congress
He also took a jibe at the Congress's 'Chardham, Charkam' slogan, saying that the idea of doing four things for Uttarakhand came to the fourth generation of the Nehru-Gandhi family quite late. Shah said, 'I want to tell Priyanka ji, who came to visit Uttarakhand, that Narendra Modi has left nothing to do here for you.'
