Raipur: Amit Shah BJP president who is on a three-day trip of Chhattisgarh has made remarkable comments on Congress, claiming that Mahatma Gandhi led Congress party was a ‘special purpose vehicle’ to achieve freedom and was never a party based on principles.
Addressing few “eminent persons” of Chhattisgarh this Friday, Shah called Mahatma Gandhi a ‘bahut chatur baniya’ who could foresee the not so bright future of his party and it was BJP party who had a clear approach since its beginning, by declaring “jo deshdrohi naare lagayega, woh deshdrohi kahlaya jayega”.
Amit Shah is on his second day of his three-day-trip to Chhattisgarh, a campaigning move to strengthen his party before the 2018 elections.
He stated that Congress Party had no ideologies as such and it was just a mere special purpose vehicle to get independence, and the people from all different ideologies, socialist, communist everyone were only a part of its pre independence movement.
He was quoted saying “Congress kisi ek vichaar dhaara ke adhaar par, kisi ek siddhant ke adhaar par bani hui party hi nahi hai, woh azadi prapt karne ka ek special purpose vehicle hai, azadi prapt karne ka ek saadhan tha. Aur isi liye Mahatma Gandhi ne durandesi ke saath, bahut chatur baniya tha woh, usko maloom tha aage kya hone waala hai, usne azadi ke baad turant kaha tha, Congress ko bikher dena chahiye. Mahatma Gandhi ne nahi kiya, lekin ab kuch log usko bikherne ka kaam samapt kar rahe hain. Isliye hi kaha tha Mahatma Gandhi ne, kyunki Congress ki koi ideology hi nahi thi, siddhanto ke aadhar par bani hui party hi nahi thi. Desh chalaane ke, sarkar chalaane ke koi siddhant hi nahi the. (The Congress is not a party based on one ideology or one principle, it is a special purpose vehicle to gain independence…this is why Mahatma Gandhi with foresight, he was a very clever baniya, he knew what was going to happen, he said immediately after independence that the Congress should be dissolved. He didn’t do it, but some people are now completing the job of dissolving it. He had said this because the Congress had no ideology, was not formed based on a principle, and did not have any principle to run the country or government”.
‘Clarity of thought’ has helped his party to take a firm stand on various issues said Amit Shah.
He further added “They (the Congress) think someone will say this, someone will say that. But we have no confusion. We are clear. Agar koi desh drohi naare lagayega, wo deshdrohi kahlaya jayega”.
Shah also claimed that BJP and the CPI(M) are the only two parties which have inner democracy out of 1650 political organisations in India.
He also said that it has always been clear to who is going to take over the next president seat in Congress whereas nobody can predict the same about his party, IndianExpress reported.
