Hon’ble BJP National President stated that the opposition INDI alliance doesn’t care about the people of the country, they are in politics for their family. PM Shri Modi Ji has a progressive vision, while the INDI alliance relies on dynastic politics. While PM Shri Modi Ji advocates for “Bhrashtachar Hatao”, the INDI alliance focuses on “Bharashtachariyon ko Bachao”. In BJP, individuals come from humble backgrounds, but in the INDI alliance, nepotism and dynastic politics are prevalent. Shri Nadda underscored the prevalence of dynastic politics within the INDI Alliance, citing examples such as Farooq Abdullah, Umar Abdullah, Mehbooba Mufti, the Chautala family, the Badal family, Mulayam Singh, Dimple Yadav, Akhilesh Yadav, Lalu Yadav, Rabri Devi, Tejashwi Yadav, and Tej Pratap Yadav. The familial nature of Mamata Banerjee’s party, represented by Abhishek Banerjee, as well as KCR, KTM, and Kavitha’s factions. Furthermore, the involvement of the Thackeray family with Uddhav Thackeray and Aditya Thackeray, and the Gandhi family’s influence, including Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi, and Priyanka Gandhi. These political figures prioritize their own and their family’s interests over the welfare of the people, lacking genuine connections with the electorate.

Shri Nadda asserted that all these parties are centered around families, and they are all corrupt. Rahul Gandhi, Sonia Gandhi, Sanjay Singh, Lalu Yadav, TMC and DMK leaders are out on bail, while Arvind Kejriwal, Manish Sisodia, Satyendra Jain, Azam Khan, TMC and DMK leaders are in jail. ‘INDI Alliance’ of corrupt individuals and stated that the public won’t let such people come forward.   INDI Alliance for being against Sanatan and the nation. He cited instances like Uday Nidhi Stalin calling Sanatan as diseases like dengue and malaria, and A. Raja likened it to HIV.  Such people should not be allowed to lead. INDI Alliance for being anti-national, referring to slogans like “Afzal Hum Sharminda Hain, Tere Qatil Zinda Hain” raised at Jawaharlal Nehru University. He linked Rahul Gandhi’s association with them to their lack of respect for the nation and its interests.

Hon’ble BJP National President stated that they used to say “Bharat Tere Tukde Honge, Inshah Allah Inshah Allah!” Rahul Gandhi stood with the ‘Tukde Tukde Gang’ and now he has been made the candidate for Lok Sabha elections. They are standing with anti-national forces. Recently, the INDI Alliance has initiated a new scheme; in the Congress manifesto, work has been done to look at minorities differently. Dr. B.R. Ambedkar had said that no reservation will be based on religion, reservation will be for social justice. Their conspiracy is to snatch reservation from India’s OBCs, Dalits, Tribals, Most Backward Classes, and Extremely Backward Classes, and give reservation to a special class. This will be an attack on the Constitution of India. Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi Ji has challenged Congress to formally commit in writing that they will not alter SC, ST, and OBC reservations or allocate them to specific communities under Congress-led state governments. These attempts have been made four times in Andhra Pradesh and twice in Karnataka. While the Congress had previously implemented reservation for a specific class in Karnataka, the BJP abolished it and granted their rights to OBCs. However, Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah seeks to reintroduce it. Congress strengthens anti-India forces and attempts to divide and break the country’s social fabric. 

Hon’ble BJP National President urged everyone to progress with Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi Ji’s vision of ‘Sabka Sath, Sabka Vikas, Sabka Vishwas, Sabka Prayas’, and called for support for the lotus symbol on May 7th.
