<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Spreading violence, diverting attention from real issues and suppressing voices of dissent constitute the main ingredients of the BJP’s politics, the Congress today said, alleging its involvement in vandalism outside the party’s headquarters here. Accusing the BJP of abusing the Congress leadership, the party said it would not be cowed down by any threats and will continue to lend voice to highlight people’s problems. “BJP’s politics has three main ingredients — to spread violence, divert attention (from real issues) and suppress voice (of dissent). Indulging in violence and vandalism, abusing the top Congress leadership and spreading garbage has become the character of the ruling party,” Congress spokesperson Ajoy Kumar told reporters. Referring to today’s violence outside the Akbar road headquarters of the Congress allegedly by Hindu Yuva Vahini wrokers, he said such a trend was dangerous for democracy but the party will not be cowed down by such threats. Kumar alleged that from today’s actions of the BJP’s “sister organisation” it was amply clear that they have the support of the Delhi Police and the ruling government. The Congress would lodge an FIR with the police in this regard, he added. He added that the BJP has turned into “Bharatiya Goondaraj Party” and “Bharatiya Jungle-raj Party” which has a “Light and Sound Department” that tries to enact programmes to divert the attention of the public. Charging the BJP with not fulfilling any of its promises like jobs creation, providing housing, cleaning Ganga or connecting every village digitally, he said the Centre has “failed”. He said the way this government works is evident from the fact that it has utilised merely 7 per cent of Rs 20,000 crore meant for Ganga cleanliness and has only connected 16,000 villages digitally against the promise of connecting 2 lakh villages. Kumar also highlighted the “rising” cases of atrocities on Dalits and minorities across the country and cited examples of Dadri and Saharanpur in UP and Una in Gujarat in this regard. “There has been a 38 per cent increase in atrocities against the weaker sections but let me tell you something there are two issues one is there has been an increase – the second issue is if you are not registering cases so that you hide the truth, it will show up despite the efforts of this government to camouflage it,” he said. “What happened in Saharanpur (and) what is happening – whether it is the custodial death of Dalit in Jharkhand, whether it is the lynching 18 people have been attacked in the month of Jharkhand – my home state where eight (people) have died in one day,” he said.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)
