Teach lesson to BJP & Modi for not supporting democracy: Congress chief

Nagpur, Dec 28 (UNI) Coming down heavily on the BJP-led central government, Congress national president Mallikarjun Kharge said on Thursday that currently, democracy and the Constitution are under threat in the country and hence, time has come to teach a lesson to both BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi for not supporting democracy.

Addressing a rally on occasion of the party’s 139th foundation day at Bharat Jodo Maidan here, he said that during the BJP rule, inflation and unemployment have risen tremendously.

Even though there are 32 lakh posts vacant in the central government, the Modi government does not want to fill these posts so that the backward classes will get a chance, he said.

Targeting Modi, the Congress chief alleged that the Prime Minister has time to travel around the world but he had no time to attend parliament while in session.

“It is a mockery of democracy to pass laws by suspending 146 MPs of Opposition parties, who asked questions in parliament,” he noted.

The Modi government has saddled the country with a debt of Rs 200 lakh crore, but the funds for welfare schemes are cut and no scholarships are given to students from backward communities, he charged.

Also, atrocities against Dalits have increased during the Modi government, he continued.

If BJP is not stopped, the country will be ruined and the Constitution will be destroyed, he added.

Kharge made an appeal to people to teach a lesson to both Modi and BJP, who do not support democracy.
