Thiruvananthapuram, Sep 03: Union Residence Minister Amit Shah on Saturday slammed the Congress and Communist events for treating Scheduled Tribes and Dalits as a vote financial institution whereas claiming that solely the BJP has a future in Kerala.
Talking at a Scheduled Caste convention organised by the saffron celebration, the BJP chief stated, “Congress is disappearing from India while the Communist party is on the verge of extinction from the world. In Kerala, only the BJP has a future. The Congress party and the Communists never worked for the welfare of the Scheduled Tribes. They treated them as mere votebanks,” Shah stated.
Shah additionally focused Congress and communist events saying they by no means labored for the welfare of the Scheduled Tribes and handled the Dalit communities solely as a votebank.
He requested whether or not the Congress celebration ever had a single Minister from the SC/ST group. He stated when BJP had majority in Parliament to elect the Rashtrapathi, they chose an individual from the Dalit group – Ram Nath Kovind. “On our second chance, we selected an ST community leader Draupadi Murmu,” he stated.
“This is because Prime Minister believes that the development of the country is possible only through the development of the SC/ST communities. The Congress and the Communist parties did nothing for the Dalit communities despite being in power for so long,” he added.
Shah challenged the Congress and the Communist events to come back ahead and clarify what they’ve executed for the downtrodden communities thus far. He listed out the tasks and insurance policies of the Modi authorities for the Dalits and the SC/ST communities.
