Slamming the Congress for dragging Prime Minister Modi’s parents into political slugfest, BJP on Sunday said that Congress and its leaders have become frustrated seeing their probable defeat in assembly polls in five states and were thus resorting to cheap measures and indulging in low-level politics.
Addressing a joint press conference, BJP national vice president Prabhat Jha and national spokesman Sambit Patra said that party has filed a complaint with Election Commission seeking action against Congress leaders. Jha said Congress was so much frustrated from its probable defeat that it was resorting to cheap tactics like releasing fake audio-video, making indecent remarks against BJP leaders, commenting on their parents and intimidating them.
Telecast of fake audio of the so-called conversation between state president Rakesh Singh and Mukesh Tandon and publication of related report in a daily shows Congress’ hand behind it, alleged Jha. Accusing Congress leaders of indulging in low-level politics, the BJP leaders said that Rajbabbar made controversial remarks about Prime Minister’s mother, former Union minister Vilas Muttemwar commented on PM’s father and Digvijaya Singh’s threat to party candidate Manohar Untwaal in Agar Malwa showed that Congress had realized its defeat. Jha and Patra said that the BJP has lodge a complaint to Election Commission in this regard.
BJP national spokesman Sambit Patra, commenting on Congress leader Vilasrao Muttemvar remark’s against Prime Minister’s father, said it was unfair to drag parents in political matters. Patra said the use of language against Prime Minister by Congress shows its autocratic mentality.
Patra alleged that the ‘Raja’ and ‘Maharaja’ of Congress, who consider politics as their monopoly, does not like the son of a tea-selling family becoming the Prime Minister and have crossed all the dignity in a democracy. Patra said Modi’s insult is the insult of the public of the nation. Patra said the people of the country and the state have recognized the autocratic and dynastic mentality of Congress.
