Undue importance given to conversion, good governance day, claims NDA

Faced with swirling attack from Opposition on a range of controversies, the government on Saturday put up a brave front, saying it was totally focused on development for all sections and that undue importance has been given to issues like conversion and celebration of good governance day.

Strongly defending the government, Union minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said it was wrong to say that governance has been overshadowed by controversies and accused Congress of disrupting functioning of Rajya Sabha for political gain. Asked specifically to comment on Dharam Jagran Manch chief Rajeshwar Singh’s controversial comment regarding stay of Muslims in India, the Communications and IT Minister said, “Let me say we do not appreciate it.”

“We are for good governance, for development. That is our focus. That will remain our focus. When Modi says ‘Sabka Saath Sabka Vikas’, it includes Hindus, Muslims, tribals, Christians everybody,” he said.

Asked whether good governance was overwhelmed and overtaken by silence by government on issues like conversion and treatment of Christians, he said “Not the least.”
