Congress accuses Modi of not fulfilling promises

A day after two Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) MPs voiced their concern over marginalization of Dalits in the country, another Dalit MP of the ruling party dashed a letter to the prime minister saying his government has done nothing for the lower castes in the last four years. The reason is not that we have made any mistake. "It is the strength of the BJP that is affecting our opponents", said Modi.

Addressing karyakartas or party workers via video conference, Prime Minister Modi gave a clarion call to the BJP Karyakartas to keep working for the country and appealed all to never say or do anything that lowers India's political discourse.

Earlier in the week, two party MPs wrote to PM Modi alleging atrocities on Dalits under the BJP-led government in Uttar Pradesh. It is being seen now that it is turning more violent as well. It has risen due to its work for the nation's development. He said attempts were being made to induct the BSP rival into the BJP.

Asking them to use technology to spread their message, he said that in the current age of social media if they are not active, then they would cede the space to anti-national and anti-social elements.

It is not run on caste and family lines, and has a tradition of taking everyone along, he said.

"People from Barmer, Jalore, Jaipur, Gwalior, Meerut, Bulandshahr, Karoli and other parts (are) calling that not only anti-reservationists but police (are) also beating and slapping false cases", he said in his tweets late on Saturday night. "What is happening on International Border and LoC and the serious turn which the situation has taken in Kashmir is self-explanatory of where we stand at this moment", he observed.

The Prime Minister reiterated that the party aims to ensure that the person sitting on the bottom of the pyramid is connected to BJP.

The proceedings of the Lok Sabha were disrupted every day of this session.

The larger point is that the Opposition, despite proforma protestations about the allegedly new low the "level of political discourse" Shah had touched, should be seriously anxious about the potential for negative impact its anybody-but-BJP strategy may have if Shah can galvanise the cadre and the convince the neutrals by honing this strategy of calling out Opposition forces supping with each other even while checking if they are being poisoned, as it were, by their new-found allies at the cost of showcasing a cogent, coherent agenda of governance for the nation.
