Rajnath flays Congress for going soft on terrorists
Hardwar, Apr 25: BJP chief Rajnath Singh has lambasted the Congress led UPA Government for going soft on terrorists, including Naxalites and Maoists, under the pressure of the Left parties. The security of the country was in grave peril, he alleged.
Expressing deep concern at the increasing demographic imbalance in the country, he said the Christian missionaries were converting the Hindus to the Christian fold in large numbers and if this was allowed to continue, within the next 50 years the Hindus would be reduced to a minority in their own country.
Comming down heavily on Bangladeshi infiltrators in Assam, he said though the Hindus, who crossed over from Bangaldesh to our country could be accepted as refugees, the Muslims, who crossed over to our country from Bangladesh, were infiltrators and could not be accepted in any case. If the BJP came to power at the Centre, all such infiltrators would be driven out of the borders of the country, he declared emphatically.
Flaying the Central Government's policy of reservation on the basis of religion, he saidt it would lead to another partition of the country. He also criticised the move of reservation for the OBCs in the institutes of higher learning. He suggested there should be reservation for the poor students of all the castes.
Mr Raj Nath Singh was accompanied by the state BJP chief and former state Chief Minister B S Koshiyari, Lok Sabha member and former union minister of state, B C Khanduri, the Lok Sabha member and former union minister of state, Bacchi Singh Rawat and the leader of the opposition in the state assembly, Matbar Singh Kandari.
The sant community, which has been the backbone of the party in the region, was conspicuous by its absence in the public meeting in the holy city.
