New Delhi : Accusing the Congress of creating chaos in the country ever since they lost the elections, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Sunday said the grand old party’s ‘destructive’ attitude towards development was the biggest example of intolerance.
“Ever since they have lost they have been creating chaos. Their destructive attitude towards development is the biggest instance of intolerance. By creating an obstacle in the development of the poor, the youth and the farmer, they are spreading intolerance,” Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi told ANI.
Naqvi’s reaction comes after Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi accused the BJP yesterday of ignoring the poor and the weaker sections of society.
Rahul, who took out a padyatra (foot march) from Bandra Bandstand to Dharavi , said that the government was blind to the true potential of the world’s largest slum.
“I met people from all walks of life. All of them told me one thing, the focus that needs to be given to poor and the weak sections of the society, the labourers, small business men, that focus is neither being given by the Maharashtra Government nor by the government in Delhi,” Rahul said.
“‘Make in India’ karna hai to pehle ‘Make in Dharavi’ kariye, chote udyogpatiyon ke haaton ko mazboot kariye (if you want to Make in India succeed, then focus first on Make in Dharavi, empower the small businessmen here),” he added. (ANI)
