NANDED: Shivaji Maharaj was a visionary and under his rule, there was a place for everybody, irrespective of their religion.
But Shivaji is being presented as a saviour of Hindus and anti-Muslims. In fact it was Shivaji formula of ‘Triple M’ (Maratha, Muslims and Maudes) which is used by Congress to win this election.
Maharaja Shivaji has used this 3M strategy to rule over his kingdom without any communal tensions.
The BJP, RSS and VHP projected him as anti-Muslim for their own political necessity. We salute the intelligent people of Nanded (both Hindus and Muslims) for rejecting all the polarizing forces that is BJP, Shiv Sena and MIM.
Congress has presented secular face of Imran Pratapgarhi whom Owaisi brothers have abused.
On every occasion, they attempted to communal the election by dividing votes. In fact, the Muslims have voted prudently and avoided polarization and division of their votes.
The 3M strategy and the communal atmosphere created before the election have forced both Muslims and Hindus to vote for secular party.
In 2014 elections, the BJP was voted to power with thumping majority because of Congress scandals and corruption. Modi led- BJP government promised Sabka Saath Sabka Vikas but three years of communal politics of love-jihad, Ghar Wapsi, Lynching in the name of Gau Rakshaks, Dalits discrimination, demonetization, GST, Jumla-Baazi, unemployment and farmer’s suicide and failures of industries and economic slowdown have hurt the ordinary Indian.
Defeat of divisive politics
The victory in the Nanded Waghala Municipal Corporation election is not that of any single party, but the significance of this election is the defeat of communal and divisive politics.
The splendid performance of Congress in Nanded by-polls clearly indicates the fact that the people not voted in favour of BJP, Shiv Sena and AIMIM who propagated the divisive politics.
The result sets an example that people voted prudently to reject polarization.
Till 3:15 in the afternoon, Congress is leading in 70 seats, BJP-5, Shiv Sena-1 and AIMIM-1 and NCP -0.
