Hardik Patel had challenged the BJP government, saying “If you hurt this community, the government will collapse”.
The move came after BJP president Amit Shah’s statement on Wednesday that the decision to declare a truce when Pakistan-backed tribal raiders were being repulsed in Kashmir was a “historic blunder”.
Referring to the declaration of truce in 1948 when Pakistan-backed tribal raiders were being repulsed in Kashmir, Shah said the problem in the border state would not exist today but for that decision.
Observing that while the world was going through unrest and tribulations, Shah said, “Indian culture is the key to happiness”.
While Modi kept his speech focused on the need for “vikas”, BJP national president Amit Shah slammed the UP government on reports of “exodus” of Hindus from Kairana.
BJP is likely to involve a strong focus on the party’s development agenda for the state, hard-hitting critique of the Akhilesh Yadav government’s purported failures, especially on the law and order front, and a soft Hindutva focus.
BJP President Amit Shah also referred to the alleged migration of 100 families of a community from the western UP town of Kairana, and said that it is a matter of deep concern.
Prime Minister Modi will address the national executive meeting’s concluding session on Monday. He will also address a public rally at the Parade Ground.
In an effort to increase the NDA’s base, the BJP is also expected to resume its attempts to bring in Kerala Congress-Mani, a key constituent of the Congress-led UDF.
Shah said PM wants to ensure development of UP and has brought a number of schemes for welfare of the people, but Akhilesh was creating roadblocks in their implementation in the state.
Addressing a meeting of BJP’s booth unit presidents of Braj region in Kasganj district, Amit Shah said that the Akhikesh Yadav government was not ashamed even after the Mathura incident.
The BJP president was speaking at a function to release Jana Sangha leader Deendayal Upadhyaya’s biography ‘Rashtradrashta’.
Shah was speaking as a chief guest at an event at Balgandharva Auditorium in Pune.
“BJP has no moral right to speak on the law and order situation of UP because Haryana has recently faced height of anarchy,” said Senior SP leader, Ambika Chaudhary.
“If even a little bit of self-respect is left in Netaji (Mulayam), he should get minister Shivpal Yadav to resign immediately,” Shah said in Kanpur.
