In a statement issued here, today, Tarun Chugh asked Rahul Gandhi not to spread canards and hoodwink people by hiding facts. He said it was his great-grand father and first Prime Minster of India, Pt Jawahar Lal Nehru in whose Government in 1962 war China captured thousands Acres of Indian territory. He said it is the result of policies of PM Narendra Modi led BJP Government that China does not dare to raise its eyes towards India now.
The BJP national general secretary said the 140 day long Bharat Jodo Yatra (BJY) of Rahul Gandhi was a conspiracy to mislead the people of the country. He questioned the suggestion of Rahul Gandhi asking Union Home Minister, Amit Shah to take Yatra from Jammu to Srinagar and reminded him that it was because of abrogation of Article 370 by Modi Government that the Congress leader could unfurl the National Tricolour at Lal Chowk, Srinagar in Kashmir Valley yesterday.
Chugh said Rahul Gandhi is active in politics for last two and half decades and during this period the Congress Government led by Dr Manmohan Singh ruled at Centre for 10 years so why did not Rahul Gandhi took an initiative during that period to hoist the National Flag at Lal Chowk Srinagar when Congress was in power at Centre.
He said Rahul Gandhi had to wait for three generations to hoist the Tricolour at Lal Chowk, Srinagar and he got this opportunity only after annulling of Article 370 and 35 A which was a blot on India’s unity and integrity by Modi Government. For this Rahul should compliment PM Narendra Modi instead of criticizing him and BJP, he added.
Tarun Chugh also said that instead of making allegations during his yatra against BJP and Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) Rahul Gandhi should have sought the feedback from people about the two organizations wedded to the national cause.
He said the country has tolerated the Congress for 55 long years but it was due to its policies that Congress has lost its mandate in the country now and it is struggling for its identification as a national party.
