The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Sunday accused the BJP of pursuing a politics of “hate and lies” and stressed on the need for ousting it from power at the centre.
AAP Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh, who is also the party’s in-charge for Bihar, alleged that in Delhi – which is ruled by his party – “names of about 30 lakh voters half of who are from UP-Bihar have been deleted from the electoral roll at the behest of the BJP”.
“Where will the disenfranchised voters of Delhi go. Are they Bangladeshi infiltrators? Amit Shah indulges in rhetoric on the issue of illegal immigrants and in practice his party has been pitting people of one region against the other”, Mr Singh said in response to a query on the BJP chief’s recent remark that “India is not a dharamshala” in the context of the National Registry of Citizens in Assam.
The Bulandshahr incident in which two people died in mob violence in the district following an alleged cow slaughter, is another example of BJP’s politics of “hate and lies”, he said.
The BJP has made the construction of Ram temple such a big issue while in Kashi (Varanasi), dozens of temples of various gods have been razed for development projects, he said.
