10,000 incidents of communal violence took place during Modi’s 8-year rule


Releasing a report card on the 8 years rule of Prime Minister Narendra Modi government, the main op-position Congress has said in the last eight years a staggering 10,000 incidents of communal violence have occurred in the country.

The party said 8 years of BJP Government epitomes its 8 blatant betrayals on inflation, farmers, employment, recession, small businesses, territorial integrity, social harmony and bleeding economy with sinking rupee vs US dollar.

At a press conference in New Delhi, the Con-gress released the Modi government’s report card, titled ‘8 Saal, 8 Chhal; Bhajpa (BJP) Sarkar Vifal,’ before the BJP begins its celebrations on the com-pletion of eight years in office. The report exposes the Modi government’s lies on eight major subjects.

Ajay Makan, a senior Congress leader and for-mer union minister, told the journalists at the party’s headquarters that the country had seen over 10,000 religious riots in the last eight years. The Prime Minister, on the other hand, said nothing.

The government comes to power on the promise of “vikas’ (development) but it has been spreading ‘nafrat’ (hatred) in order to divert attention from its gigantic failures. “Everyone knows that wherever violence or riots took place due to religion. BJP has been involved directly or indirectly. This is BJP’s agenda,” Maken said.

In view of recent events such as anti-Muslim violence during processions of Hindu festival Ram Navami and the Gyanvapi mosque case, the report expressed concern over sectarian division.

According to the report, the Union Home Minis-ter told parliament on March 30, 2022 that 3,400 incidences of communal violence occurred between 2016 and 2022. The deadliest communal rioting occurred in Delhi, where 53 people were killed, and the majority of whom were Muslims.

The study assessed the Modi government’s per-formance on a number of fronts, including the econ-omy, national security, foreign policy, inflation, and communal peace.

“One after another, BJP’s bad policies contrib-uted to the devastating slide of the Indian economy,” said Randeep Surjewala, chairman of the Congress media department, attacking the Modi government for adopting disastrous policies. Because of the BJP’s eight years of misgovernance, what was once the fastest-growing economy is now in shambles?”

The BJP government, according to both the sen-ior Congress politicians, is smashing all records in deceiving its own people.

“Are these the ‘achhe din’ you waited for so long?” Congress said, referring to the Modi gov-ernment’s massive price hikes, mounting unem-ployment, and stand-off with China in the Ladakh area.

The government’s failure to deal with the Coro-navirus outbreak was also addressed in the report card.

When media persons asked what is the most se-rious failure of the Modi government, Maken quipped that each one of these failures is bigger than the other.

“Well, we have divided the entire failures into 8 parts and if you look at each one of them, each one of these failures is bigger than the other. So, if we say that inflation is a bigger failure than unemployment, it will be wrong. If we say that failure with respect to farmers is bigger than inflation and unemployment, it would be wrong, because all these 8 things, which we have picked up, all these things, concern each and every citizen of the country. Be it failure to protect our boundaries, be it rising inflation, all these failures are bigger than each other. So, we can’t pick one failure over the other” Maken said.

It’s worth noting that the Modi government will complete eight years in power on May 30, and the party has scheduled massive festivities across the country from May 30 to June 14. To commemorate the anniversary, the saffron party has planned to organise a number of events.

The following are the eight failures of the BJP government, as compiled by Congress: Inflation – referring to the data released by the government, Congress said India’s retail inflation surged to a near eight-year high due to the inability of the Modi government.—INP
