What happens when a monk becomes a political leader? The answer is simple: The political rhetoric changes to ‘Ali vs Bajrang Bali’
Senior Congress leader Kamal Nath said that he wanted more than Ninety per cent votes from the Muslim community of his party, and in exchange of that remark, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister and Hindu Yuva Vahini Leader Yogi Aditya Nath said, “Keep your Ali, Bajrang Bali is enough for us.\"
Now, in response to Yogi’s remark of Ali vs Bajrang Bali remark, several Muslim members of Bhartiya Janta Party resigned from their offices.
The main among the dissenters are Indore BJP minority cell members Anis Khan, manual vice-president Aman Memon, BJP Rau Nagar vice-president Sonu Ansari, vice-president of Maharana Pratap Mandal Danish Ansari and Riyaz Ansari.
The dissenters are saying that dragging religion into the election was totally unnecessary, the focus of the speech should be Shivraj Singh Chouhan government’s development schemes instead of religion.
According to a report by News18, BJP Minority Cell state vice-president Nasir Shah talked to them. He said, “I will write letters to party chief Amit Shah and state head Rakesh Singh briefing them about the public sentiments and party workers’ views on the matter on Wednesday.”
Irfan Mansoori, another member of the Bhartiya Janta Party, said similar things. He said, “Be it Ladli Laxmi Yojana, Teerth Darshan Yojana or the PM Housing Scheme, they benefitted all and could be boasted of to seek votes.”
After 70 years of Independence and Democracy, what we have got is Religion, Vigilantism, Violence and ‘Ali vs Bajrang Bali’
