How rebel Dalit MPs have exposed BJP's Muslim leaders and their hypocrisy

The sit-in demonstration, led by BJP's national general secretary and state in-charge Kailash Vijayvargiya, was organised by the party unit at Mayo Road area in the central part of the city.

Stating that the Chief Minister should clarify her stand on the involvement of two senior Ministers instigating trouble in Kathua with regard to brutal murder and rape of eight year old nomad girl Asifa, the J&K Pradesh Congress Committee (JKPCC) President, G.A. Mir Thursday expressed surprise over the silence maintained by Mehbooba Mufti on this serious issue. During his two-day visit to state Shah will tour northern parts of the poll-bound state of Karnataka, in a bid to canvass votes for the party in the upcoming assembly elections due next month.

In what seems to be an attempt to showcase its protest against the recent parliament washout, in an emotional way, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will lead lawmakers of the BJP in a daylong fast today.

The party's leader in the assembly Jagadish Shettar, BJP Dharwad Lok Sabha member Prahlad Joshi and Rajya Sabha member Rajeev Chandrashekar also participated in the rally.

Launching a counter-attack on Congress, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday accused the grand old party of not letting the country to move forward.

The BJP's fast comes days after the Congress held a nationwide fast on April 9 to protest against Dalit atrocities and acts of communal violence that have seen a flare up across the country.

Blaming the Congress of fanning hatred in the country and playing divisive politics, Shah said the wise people understood its sinister tactics and defeated its candidates in state after state since 2014.

It was clear that Congress members were coming to Parliament for creating ruckus and they would do it the moment its proceedings would begin and then they would do the same outside, Shah said. The Sena's lone Union minister - Anant Geete (in white) - joined the BJP MPs in Delhi but was asked by the Sena leadership to leave the venue immediately.

"It appeared that the Congress was more interested in making noise outside Parliament than engaging in a constructive debate inside", he said. "Normally there are incidents where the Opposition wants a discussion on some issues and this is opposed by the ruling party but here the situation was different".

"Now, "jumla" fast gets over in an hour and feast after that".

"Amit Shah spoke of a target of over 50% vote share and 73-plus seats for NDA in 2019 in UP, for which the campaign will now start".
