Bengaluru: Alleging BJP of indulging in spreading false propaganda against the party by painting it anti-Hindu, Karnataka Congress chief G Parameshwara on Sunday called on the Congressmen to raise their voice against such wrong information.
"BJP people are unnecessarily talking about the Congress, they are trying to project Congress as anti-Hindu, but the truth is Congress looks at all religions equally," he said.
Speaking at the Congress Party's 130th Foundation Day programme here, he called on the party workers to become the ambassadors of the party.
"We speak very little, we should all start speaking out because BJP is trying to convert lies into truth by repeatedly spreading such wrong information," he said, adding, Congressmen have to raise their voice against any such disinformation campaign against the party.
Criticising BJP, Parameshwara said the government at the Centre has failed in taking steps that is development oriented and towards improving economic situation in the country.
"After seven months in power, Modi government's achievements are zero," he said.
On the BJP's ongoing membership drive in the state, Parameshwara said, "BJP has claimed to make one crore memberships in the state, our party should make more membership than theirs."
Calling the party workers across the ranks to work towards the success of the membership drive, he warned action against those who will not involve themselves in this activity.
On being asked about the Karnataka Hindu Religious Institutions and Charitable Endowments (Amendment) Bill-2014 which was introduced in the just concluded legislature session at Belagavi, he said "Congress has nothing to do with this bill."
