Not ‘save democracy’ but ‘save family’, ‘hide corruption’ rally: BJP on Oppn meeting

The BJP on Sunday slammed the opposition INDIA bloc’s rally at Ramlila ground here, saying it is not a “save democracy” meeting as projected but a “save family” and “hide corruption” rally.

BJP spokesperson Sudhanshu Trivedi cited corruption cases of a host of leaders, including those from the Congress, DMK and the RJD, to assert that all these charges date back to pre-2014 period amid the opposition’s accusation that the Modi government is implicating them in graft probes due to its political vendetta.

Ramlila ground once hosted “India against corruption” movement under the leadership of Anna Hazare, Trivedi said, adding that it is hosting on Sunday a rally for “everybody with corruption”.

People who trashed many leaders as thieves and crooks have joined hands with them, and it is a strange and startling sight, he said, in an apparent reference to the coming together of the Aam Aadmi Party with other opposition parties.

Their leader is now Lalu Prasad Yadav, a convict in several corruption cases, he added.

They are all here to hide their old sins and it must be noted that they had been against the construction of the Ram temple and some of them called for eradication of Hinduism, he alleged.
