"It is our misfortune, image versus reality and ground reality versus perception. We are not communal, casteist or anti-Muslim or anti-dalit. We want welfare of everyone, of tribals, of dalits, of women, but due to false propaganda our image has been targeted," Gadkari said.
He asked party workers to work with the marginalised sections in order to bring the "real picture" to the fore. "We should present the picture of the real BJP to the people, take the exploited sections of the society along with us.
Tribals, dalits, minorities, workers in the unorganised sector, women and youth....we should expand our organisational and political field," he said. The BJP President was speaking at a "Women Workshop" organised by BJP Mahila Morcha.
