In a scathing attack on the Congress government in Rajasthan, Prime Minister Narendra Modi criticized their handling of corruption and women’s safety issues during a rally in Chittorgarh.
However, the Congress party has not remained silent in response. They have hit back at the Prime Minister, accusing him of being selective in his criticisms and questioning his own party’s track record on similar issues.
Won’t Talk About Manipur, Ujjain: Congress On PM Modi’s Rajasthan Remark
During his rally, Prime Minister Modi expressed his concern over the safety of women and the prevalent corruption in Rajasthan under the Ashok Gehlot-led Congress government.
He highlighted the pain he feels when atrocities against women occur anywhere in the country and accused the Congress of making it a tradition in Rajasthan.
Reacting to the Prime Minister’s allegations, Congress general secretary Jairam Ramesh questioned PM Modi’s silence on incidents like Manipur and Ujjain.
Ramesh pointed out that the Prime Minister conveniently avoids mentioning issues that reflect negatively on his own party.
In the recent incident in Ujjain, a minor girl was found injured and her medical examination indicated sexual assault.
The Congress party expects the Prime Minister to address such disturbing incidents and take action against his own party members involved.
Jairam Ramesh further criticized PM Modi for being vocal during election campaigns but remaining silent on important issues affecting the nation.
Ramesh highlighted the Prime Minister’s reluctance to condemn the atrocious treatment of women wrestlers by a BJP MP and the Delhi Police and said that this selective approach to criticisms raises questions about the Prime Minister’s integrity.
Congress Stance on Violence Against Women
For the record, the Congress party categorically stated that they would never condone violence against women.
The Rajasthan government, under their leadership, has taken decisive actions in all cases related to women’s safety, ensuring that justice is pursued with utmost urgency and seriousness.
Jairam Ramesh emphasized that the difference between the Congress and BJP lies in their acceptance of responsibility and accountability. While the Congress takes immediate action, the BJP governments tend to evade responsibility.
The war of words between the Congress and the BJP continues, with the recent rally by Prime Minister Modi in Chittorgarh sparking a heated exchange.
The Congress party, while defending their track record on women’s safety and corruption, questioned the Prime Minister’s selective criticism and lack of action on similar incidents.
The battle for political supremacy rages on, but it is vital for both parties to focus on addressing the concerns and issues faced by the country rather than engaging in blame games.
