Kamareddy, Aug.13 (Hydnow): Former Minister Mohammed Ali Shabbir alleged that the BJP was using nationalism, instead of communalism, as a tool to divide the people and make political gains.
Shabbir Ali was speaking at the launch of the 75-km long ‘Azadi Ki Gaurav Yatra‘ at Gadi Kota in Domakonda Mandal of Kamareddy district on Saturday. He said that the Congress party was organizing ‘Azadi Ki Gaurav Yatra‘ with the theme ‘Zara Yaad Karo Qurbani‘ to mark the 75 years of independence and pay rich tributes to the freedom fighters who struggled and even laid down their lives for India’s freedom. On Saturday, a distance of 7 km was covered from Gadi Kota to Domakonda town.
Shabbir said that the yatra aims at creating awareness among people to reject hatred and promote unity among various sections of society. He said India could emerge as a strong nation only by adopting the Gandhian policy of peace and religious tolerance. He said that divisive politics would destroy the nation and it must be defeated at all levels.
He alleged that the BJP was now using nationalism, instead of communalism, as a tool to pursue the politics of hatred and division. “I’m proud to be associated with the Congress party which fought for the country’s freedom.
Thousands of Congress leaders laid down their lives spent years in prison and sacrificed everything to gain freedom for the country. On the other side, the BJP and none of the leaders they follow had played any role in the independence struggle. But today, BJP is trying to politicize the 75 years of India’s independence and use nationalism as a tool for political gains,” he alleged.
The Congress leader said that today India is counted among powerful nations due to the contributions made by Pandit Nehru, Indira Gandhi, Rajiv Gandhi, Sonia Gandhi, PV Narasimha Rao, and Dr. Manmohan Singh, and other leaders. (Hydnow)
