Lucknow: Accusing Congress and Samajwadi
Party of indulging in vote-bank politics in Uttar Pradesh, BJP
said people would give a "strong reply" to parties which are
exploiting the Batla House issue and using Jama Masjid imam
Syed Ahmed Bukhari to garner Muslim votes.
"People will give a strong reply to those bowing in-front
of Batla House and Bukhari house by overlooking national
interest just for vote bank politics," BJP vice-president
Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi told reporters here.
Naqvi on Saturday flagged off the BJP`s Sushan Rath which will
campaign across the state.
"While Congress and SP are saluting for the sake of
votes, it is unfortunate that they are silent on organisations
like HuJI and SIMI," Naqvi alleged while reacting on Bukhari
extending support to Samajwadi Party.
The BJP leader alleged that these parties were behaving
irresponsibly on the issue of national security.
"No clarification has been given in their manifesto or
document on the security of the country.Contrary to this
they are competing to give a friendly message to anti-national
and social organisations," he alleged.
Naqvi said while the two parties were dividing the
society by talking about religion-based reservation, they were
giving clean chit to those involved in terrorist activities.
"They are boosting the morale of such organisations by
adopting a soft and friendly attitude," he alleged.
Both the parties have ruled the state and country for
long, but have nothing to count as achievement except a long
list of price rise, unemployment and anarchy, Naqvi said.
"Common people especially Muslims have clearly understood
their behaviour and conspiracies.All these won`t get them
their votes," he said.
Naqvi said the Rath would take the messages of senior BJP
leaders including Atal Behari Vajpayee, L K Advani, Sushma
Swaraj and others to the people.
"Live telecast of speeches of senior leaders during
election rally would also be done through this Rath," he said.
