Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Tuesday questioned Congress Party on poverty. He said Congress President Rahul Gandhi is saying that he will do Nyay (Justice) with people. Who is responsible for this Anyay (Injustice)? From Jawaharlal Nehru to Indira and Rajiv Gandhi, everyone talked about eliminating poverty. Congress has ruled this country for 54-55 years alone. Was Congress doing ‘Anyay’ (Injustice) in these years? He said that positive steps should be taken by the government to eliminate poverty.
“Poverty has been reduced extensively in the last five years of NDA govt. Total 7.5 crore people affected from extreme poverty were rescued in the last 3.5 years of Narendra Modi government,” Home Minister Rajnath Singh quoted US based Brookings think tank report as saying.
Talking on Internal security especially on Naxal and Maoists, Mr. Singh told that Naxals are in desperation and that’s why they are attacking security forces indirectly. He said that Naxals have been marginalized from North-east and other parts of the country.
“There is no place of violence in a healthy democracy. Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee is responsible for the ongoing political violence in the state. She has not taken any strong action against any incident,” said HM Rajnath Singh replying on poll violence in West Bengal.
Recently in an article, senior Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar called PM Narendra Modi most foul-mouthed prime minister. Speaking on this, Mr. Singh said that abusing Prime Minister is not freedom of speech. A PM is for everyone and this constitutional position should be respected.
Home Minister Rajnath Singh also talked on Controversial Time Magazine article in which PM Narendra Modi was called Divider In Chief, speaking on this issue Home Minister Rajnath Singh said that PM Modi is committed for this whole country. Therefore how can he be Divider In Chief ? Those who created fear among minority for vote bank are the real ‘Divider in Chief’.
