BJP – “Gandhi’s ‘Satyagraha’ Was For Society”?

Must Read

The BJP slammed the Congress on Sunday for its demonstrations against Rahul Gandhi’s removal from parliament, calling it a campaign against the country’s constitution and the court’s judgement that found him guilty of defaming a “entire backward group.”

BJP spokesperson Sudhanshu Trivedi also termed the Congress agitation a “insult” to Mahatma Gandhi, adding that whereas the Father of the Nation organized Satyagraha for social objectives, the Congress was organizing “so-called Satyagraha” for personal motives.

According to him, the Congress protest is a “brazen” display of hubris in the aftermath of Gandhi’s conviction in a defamation case in Gujarat and his “automatic” disqualification as a Lok Sabha MP as a result of the court’s ruling.

He went on to say that the Congress’ ‘Sankalp Satyagraha’ had nothing to do with battling for truth.

According to the BJP spokesman, Gandhi was convicted by a Surat court following the proper legal process, and his disqualification as a Lok Sabha MP was an automatic consequence under the relevant law.

“Is it to justify how you insulted the entire backward community of the country, or is it to protest the court that punished you?” or against the law that requires you to be disqualified,” he asked Congress to clarify.

According to the BJP leader, some of the Congress leaders who were allegedly involved in the 1984 anti-Sikh riots were also participating in the party’s agitation. He also asked the opposition party to clarify whether their Satyagraha held at Mahatma Gandhi’s Samadhi Sthal in Rajghat was also against ‘Ahimsa’.

“Then, Satyagraha for what?” the BJP leader asked.
