Cong govt insulted Baba Saheb, denied him Bharat Ratna: Nadda

Agra (UP), Mar 7 (UNI) Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) national president JP Nadda on Thursday criticised previous Congress governments at the centre and said while late PMs Jawaharlal Nehru and Indira Gandhi bestowed upon themselves the Bharat Ratna, Dr B R Ambedkar was overlooked until BJP came to power.

Addressing the national convention of the BJP Anusoochit Jati Morcha, Nadda said it was under their administration that Baba Saheb was rightfully conferred the nation’s highest civlian award Bharat Ratna. “While Congress’s slogans have divided society, BJP’s slogans focus on inclusivity and development for all. Under PM Modi ‘sleadership, significant efforts have been made to uplift our SC brothers and sisters, enabling their integration into the mainstream.

He said, “Let the opposition go on ‘jail and bail yatra’ you make the lotus bloom and propel India into becoming the third-largest economy of the world.”

At the convention held at Kothi Meena Bazar ground in Agra, the BJP president discussed initiatives such as the abrogation of Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir, granting SC individuals the right to settle and contest elections there.

Nadda criticised nepotism in politics. He said that PM Modi had actively worked towards increasing scholarships in the field of education.

He said hostels were constructed at an expenditure of Rs 173 crore to accommodate students and every year, 20,000 students benefit from free coaching. He highlighted that 18 percent of SC individuals are availing the benefits of the Mudra Yojana, bringing about significant progress.

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath was present on the occasion.
