BJP politics in disguise against Minorities

"Run for Unity" what an hillarious heading. We all Indians knew Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel pre and post independance of India since 1947. Spending Rs 2,000 crore for just an statue for what type of returns. When so many scams in the country and so many mistries of poor all over country, does any one think spending so much huge sum only on statue is wise? while all over India his statue is already available. It is nothing but a Gujurati Rashtriya Ekta Trust destroying unity fabric of India of secularism behind the screen to unite BJP agenda only for non-minorities. "Mooain maay RAM Bagal maay Choorie"

Wrong Decision

It is public money and just being wasted by stupid. How can you bring unity by the statue of a person who failed in bringing the piece and unity in his time. There is a big controversy and some illiterates promoting such nonsense program for their benefit.
200 Crores is a bit money, belongs to poor and innocent Indians. It should be spent for their purpose not on their useless reasons. Modi should not be given next chance otherwise he will spoil India's economy and keep Indians remains in poverty.

Status will not solve peoples issues - Education does

2000 crores would be well spent on schools and industries in villages.

RSS/VHP/BJP Purveyors of Hatred & Saffron Terrorism

BJP, RSS, Bajrangdal are Purveyors of Hatred & Terrorism
BJP/RSS carefully planned, organised and premeditated Saffron terrorism for several decades.
In 2002, Narendra Modi emulates Bal Thackerey in Pogrom-II in Gujarat ! (Godhra and Post Godhra were scripted by the same Bhaand/Film Script Writer: Narendra Damodardas Modi). The people of Gujarat voted him., NOT BECAUSE OF DEVELOPMENT (There hasnt been any.. except for Nano factory)., BUT BECAUSE HE KILLED MUSLIMS. That planning and executing the Pogrom is his biggest achievement – and he is being repaid for that favour. It is an intellectual/emotional RETURN ON INVESTMENT. Narendra Modi is RSS’s most EVOLVED PRODUCT, who has ‘photoshopped’ Hindutva. Only Sangh insiders recognize that the core hasn’t changed.. Modi is Goebbels + Hitler and has (can) never abandon Hindutva project. Hindutva-project is a work in progress.
Hindus are not bad, per se. There is a huge provocation by RSS ! 24×7 for the past 90 years (1928-todate) RSS taught manufactured history, where Hindus are taught to hate ‘The Other’ (Muslims). Things have come to this because., the child is programmed from age 4… to hate Muslims… the dirty… the filthy… the beef-eaters… the badboo-daar… the uneducated.. the barbarians.. they raped your ancestors.. they looted your temples.. insulted your stone gods.. and your ancestors.. So hatred is slowly injected into the minds. When the boy is around 18-20 he considers it something HOLY to avenge the (fake) atrocities ! This is what leads to the present scenario.
A good mother would never accept from her son the explanation that because he did well on the test, his drug habit or killing a person doesn't matter. A good father would not dismiss casually a report card from a teacher saying that his son was excellent at math and English but was a classroom bully...
Modi or BJP just because they did well in some aspects does not absolve them of the responsibility of protecting the citizens' lives and properties.

BJP leaders are purveyors of hatred and division, promoters of paranoia, intellectually dishonest, unethical and criminal, use Terrorist RSS and Bajrang Dal to spread toxic atmosphere and culture of violence, desensitize children to violence, deceit, abuse of power and contempt of the rule of law.

What would we get spending INR 2,000 crore just creating a statu

I can understand we had many great personalities who sacrificed their lives making our Nation "INDIA". But does it make sense to spend a massive huge amount for creating a statue of one great person....

What about others....

If this spend on developments like Bridges or Road on these personalities then it would make sense and helps the Nation.

It's just my personal views...
