Congress general secretary Digvijaya Singh on Sunday alleged that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) will spread communalism to pacify the people of India who are extremely angry as Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led government has miserably failed in fulfilling the promises. Singh said Prime Minister Modi has failed in fulfilling the promises made to the people.

“The economic condition of the country is not improving. There is no investment coming. The growth in manufacturing sector is not adequate. Small scale businesses are shutting down. The people are not getting jobs and those who are working are losing their jobs. Black money could not be retrieved,” said Singh.

“People now are angry. Soon the BJP will have no agenda and to pacify the nation they will opt for communalism and the idea of war with Pakistan,” he added. Earlier in the day, Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar said the grand old party will join hands with Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) supremo Mayawati to oust the saffron party from national politics.

“I am delighted that in her own accord Mayawati has agreed to join this alliance. I think even without the Congress, it is already strong enough to take on the BJP. But if the Congress comes into it and I hope it will, then there is no hope for Prime Minister Narendra Modi except to see him consigned to the books of history,” Aiyar told ANI. Mayawati had earlier told her supporters in Lucknow that the BSP was ready to work with other parties “to save democracy”.

      First of all this Secularism and Communal-ism debate is a thing of past..and even if some people want to harp on such things, BJP is not going to do any such thing, simply because it won't work. Congress, in 2014 tried to use Secularism to counter Corruption, did it work?

          Digvijay Singh stooge of Sonia & Rahul must retire from politics and enjoy his life with his 2nd wife. For long 70 years you congress jokers have systematically destro India and its structure. Incessant appea t of muslims has brought India to such a sorry state. From the dawn of independence it was necessary to make the muslims understand that India is a secular country and every citizen should abide by its cons ution. Instead the were cajoled in every opportunity. India will remain secular till it is Hindu majority country. Actually Islam is diametrically opposite to Hindism. No amount of appea t will bring the desired result. Barring a very few enlightened muslims all are guided by Arab ideology. The mission to detach them from wahabi thought and bringing them into mainstream Indian thought is very very tough. Almost impossible. Time has come to bite the bullet. I hope BJP will exactly do that by cons utional framework.
