JAMMU, Jan 3: The recent judgement of the Supreme Court of India that no politician or political party can seek votes in the name of caste, creed, religion or language is a landmark decision and will obviously bring a revolution in the Indian politics.
This was stated by BJP State secretary Aseem Gupta, while asking the Indian politicians not to mix religion with politics as election is a secular process and religion has no role in it.
Aseem Gupta said “we were ruled by Mughals and Britishers for hundreds of years due to which we lost our identity and in 1947 when we got independence we were not shown right path for leading the country towards development, rather politicians started exploiting the people of the country in the name of religion and caste for their political benefits”. Their sole motive was that their political shops should keep running. Some particular community people were used for their political benefits and making people fight with each other by giving the name of (communal rights) and taking benefit for themselves and their Party and nothing to do with the nation.
Aseem further said that the countries who got independence merely 30 years back are more progressive and have very well developed infrastructure and Hongkong is one of the example.
The reason for the development of countries like Hongkong is because of the fact that people focus on what they have been contributing towards their nation cutting across their individual association or faith. But on the other hand, the people in our country have more concern and worry for themselves rather than thinking of the country.
Aseem Gupta appealed the people to come forward and take a sincere pledge not to be misled on the slogans of caste and religion and contribute in giving new direction to the Indian politics for a better future.
