Modi ended politics of caste and appeasement: Nadda; ‘INDIA bloc a group of corrupt and dynasts’


PTI, Apr 3, 2024, 8:30 AM IST

BJP chief JP Nadda on Tuesday said Prime Minister Narendra Modi brought a change in the political culture which was dominated by the politics of caste, dynasty and appeasement in the past and replaced it by setting the trend of development.

Addressing a meeting of intellectuals in Jabalpur in the run-up to Lok Sabha elections, Nadda alleged the opposition INDI alliance is a group of corrupt and dynast leaders.

”Prime Minister Narendra Modi has brought a political change in the political culture of the country. I want people to recall old political style which focused on caste, whether a person is forward (caste) or backward, which castes are supporting him and vote bank politics,” Nadda said.

He alleged that caste-based politics used to be the main agenda of politics in the past.

”Another way of doing politics in those days was through dynastic rule. Only members of one family continued to remain in the front while the rest were supposed to just clap,” he said.

Nadda further said politics of appeasement was the trend in the country in the past.

”But today we can say that after Modi ji arrived, the dynastic politics, caste politics and the politics of appeasement is ended and a new politics of development has started in the country,” the BJP president said.

He said earlier people were made to believe that nothing would change in the country and everything would go on as it is.

”However, this mindset has changed after Modi came to power ten years ago. The common man started believing that things could change. Things have changed and will continue to change. This is a political change in the country,” Nadda added.

Referring to the opposition INDIA bloc, Nadda said it consists of those (leaders) who want to save their corruption.

”On the one hand, Modi has resolved to eliminate and uproot graft, whereas on the other hand, there is the INDI alliance. People should decide which type of politics they prefer,” he said.

”Development is happening and the country is moving ahead under the leadership of the prime minister. The corrupt have suffered a blow. (Leaders of) the INDI alliance are fighting to save their families as well as themselves from the blow being dealt to corruption,” Nadda said.

Taking a swipe at the Opposition, the BJP chief claimed half of the members in the INDI alliance are either out on bail or in jail.

Congress leaders Rahul Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi are out on bail while Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal and his ministers are in jail, he said.

He also mentioned the National Conference led by Farooq Abdullah, PDP of Mehbooba Mufti, Shiromani Akali Dal, Samajwadi Party, RJD, DMK, BRS, Congress and others in his speech, saying the members of the India bloc are dynastic parties.

”The Congress has now become the party of Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi as all other leaders have left them,” he added.

Later, addressing a public meeting in Shahdol, Nadda said the country was facing terror attacks every now and then before 2014, but such incidents don’t occur now.

”Earlier scams took place every day, but now action against corrupt persons is taking place with full honesty,” he added.

Nadda said while the prime minister is determined to take the country forward, the Opposition keeps harping on the ”remove Modi” tune. Canvassing for sitting BJP MP from Shahdol (ST) seat Himadri Singh, Nadda said the BJP’s double engine government has ensured the empowerment of women and poor, benefits for farmers, and opportunities for youths to fulfil their aspirations.

Nadda hailed Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Mohan Yadav for presenting his government’s three-month report card which highlighted the steps taken for the welfare of the people.

Later in the evening, the BJP president addressed the party workers in Jabalpur.

”It can happen only in BJP where even a meeting of workers is so huge that it looks like a public meeting. This was possible because of BJP’s 18 crore members in the country, which is the largest political party in the world,” he added.

”We have 6.40 lakh booth committees across the country, 303 Lok Sabha members, 94 Rajya Sabha members, 1,500 MLAs and nearly 200 mayors, and now we will cross the 400 mark,” Nadda said.

He praised PM Modi for abrogating Article 370 that granted special status to Jammu and Kashmir, constructing a grand Ram temple in Ayodhya, ending the practice of ‘Triple Talaq’ and implementing 33 per cent reservation for women in Parliament and the state legislatures, among other achievements.
