Minorities faced threat during NDA rule: Cong
All India Congress Committee (AICC) Secretary Sanjay Dutt, who is in-charge of Tamil Nadu, on Sunday, said minorities, who craved protection, came under attack in various parts of the country during Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s tenure.
Addressing newspersons in Nagercoil, Dutt said the attackson minorities increased every year under the BJP-led NDA government.
“Many innocent people were brutally attacked by functionaries of Vishwa Hindu Parishad, Bajrang Dal and RSS in the name of cow vigilantism,” he said.
Criticising the State government led by Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami and his deputy O Panneerselvam, the Congress leader said, “Both had surrendered before Modi and are dancing to the tunes of his government since they are facing charges of alleged irregularities in allocation of tenders of public projects. Besides, several other state ministers are facing graft charges.”
Dutt lashed out at Modi claiming that he acted as an NRI (Non-Resident Indian) Prime Minister after having spent most of his days in foreign countries during his tenure.
Holding Modi responsible for failing to deliver on his promises made ahead of the previous Lok Sabha polls in 2014, Dutt said, “The common man and traders were made to suffer after the Centre implemented demonetisation and GST. Modi, who claims to be chowkidar, favoured corporate giants and business tycoons, including Nirav Modi and Vijay Mallya.
