Bharatiya Janata Party National Spokesperson Dr Bizay Sonkar Shastri said that the Congress party at the national level is doing nothing but misleading people through their statements and initiatives. He said, “The recent initiative in this direction is that AICC President Rahul Gandhi is going to launch ‘Bharat Bachao Andolan’. Through such activities, the Congress is trying to bring unrest in the country with an objective to topple NDA government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.”

Shastri said that everyone here is working on national and country’s interest and all of us know about the Independence struggle. Now that 70 years have passed since then, the AICC President is talking about ‘Bharat Bachao Andolan’. Shastri asked from whom the AICC President wants to save the country it should be clarified. Surprisingly, whether he wants to save the country from England or from America or from Italy, it should be elucidated.Shastri said that if we look back four years from now, the Prime Minister of India at that time was not recognised internationally. He further added that the situation of President of India as well as the Prime Minister during the UPA tenure was very pathetic. But today, the situation has changed. Now if the Prime Minister visits any country, irrespective of the fact whether it is a superpower or otherwise, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is given rousing welcome by the President or the Prime Minister of that country. Many a times it has been observed that they do it by breaking the protocol. Under such situation if a national party is speaking about Bharat Bachao Andolan, it is nothing but misleading the people by Congress.

Shastri further added that it is the nature and habit of the AICC President to create such ambiguous moments. The AICC President had even supported people like Umar Khalid and Kanhaiyya, who had shouted anti-India slogans and now that court decisions have come implicating them as anti-national. What message did he give at that time by making a mockery of nationalism. He even supported Pathalgadi incidents which were violating the constitutional norms.Shastri said that the AICC President rakes up issues like protecting the culture of Adivasi traditions, whereas, in actual whether he has any inkling about Indian culture, that remains a question. Terms like Scheduled Caste, Scheduled Tribes and Other Backward Classes, are used
today whenever talks on issues of socio-economic development takes place in the country. But it is a serious doubt whether the AICC President knows about the constitutional definition of these terms. He also expressed doubt whether the AICC President even understands the Constitution of India fully or not. He said recently the AICC President had given a slogan – ‘Samvidhan Bachao’ and even had staged dharna.

No one in the country has the guts to change the Constitution of India, which is considered the best and biggest Constitution in the world. But it is unfortunate the AICC President is misleading the country on the issue that the BJP and PM Modi will change the Constitution if they return to power in 2019. The AICC President had also misled people by stating that the BJP will be ending reservation. It is clear on this issue that reservation in India is a social and constitutional arrangement. It is campaign towards bringing social equality and until and unless this is achieved, reservation can’t be ended. If and when this is achieved there will be no requirement for reservation. For this if required, we’ll wait for 200 years if necessary.

Shastri while asserting that the reservation system was implemented in 1936 by British, the constitutional status given to reservation was only due to the tiring efforts of Dr B R Ambedkar. Congress has played no role either. Through spreading misleading statements the Congress led by AICC President Rahul Gandhi is creating unrest among the people and affecting the harmony.
