Stay away from a party with communal ideology: PM

He said Congress is the only party that could keep the nation and society united and could lead the country on the path of progress.

‘Congress never believes in negative politics like rival BJP. We use sober language...Some leaders of BJP believe in using very derogatory words against its rivals,’ Singh told an election rally at Ram Lila Maidan. Polling for the 200-member Rajasthan Assembly is scheduled on 1 December.

The Prime Minister asked the people to guard themselves against political parties advocating ‘communal ideology by devising new definitions of secularism’. During the rally, Singh also stressed on the need to avoid separatists forces.

Highlighting Congress’ policies and achievements, Singh said, ‘Our party does not take support of untruth because we very well know that people do not vote for those who make tall claims, but support political parties whose work and policies are positive and have better records.’

Citing his government’s skill development programme, he said, ‘I like to give you the example of some BJP leaders distorting facts and figures every day to mislead the public in their meetings. Hence, there is need for you to verify their talk and claims.’

Without naming Narendra Modi, the Prime Minister said, ‘About a month ago in an election rally in Rajasthan, a BJP chief minister had made baseless allegations against the Rajasthan government on the rights of minorities and violation of human rights.

‘Before levelling such allegations, he should have seen his government’s records...Not a single day has passed when the government (in Gujarat) has not been surrounded by such issues,’ he said.

Singh recalled that even former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee had advised him (Modi) to abide by ‘Rajdharama’ after the 2002 Gujarat riots.
