In 2014 Parliament elections, in the state of J&K, overall turnout was 66 percent, while it was 56 percent in the previous elections.
It was 6.5 percent voter turnout in Srinagar by-poll in 2017 and seven dead in clashes during the polls. Polling booths burnt down.
These are accepted facts.
Whatever little work put-in to build trust in the democratic process in Kashmir was reversed in less than three years by the BJP government at the centre.
A few days back, as ‘satan reading scriptures’ , Modi spoke of tourism instead of terrorism in Kashmir while inaugurating Asia's longest bi-directional road tunnel on the Jammu-Srinagar National Highway.
You have single-handedly brought down- not inflation- but voters turnout from 66 percent, to 6.5 percent.
Modi’s local boss RSS Chief Mohan Bhagwat (no prize for guessing his over-all Boss) demand an all-India law against cow slaughter. Modi, of course would second it.
People around the world consume an average of 75 pounds of meat per person, per year, according to a research by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development . That includes beef, pork, poultry, and sheep meat. Sizeable People in many Indian states consume beef.
Modiji, how would you increase number of foreign tourists coming to India if you don’t even serve their daily food.
Next, Aryans of the Rig Veda did kill cows for purposes of food and ate beef is abundantly clear from the Rig Veda itself. In Rig Veda (X. 86.14), Indra says that twenty cows were cooked for him.
Your hindutva seems to be at odds with Rig Veda.
Now, for a change let us go to the southernmost state of India.
In Tamilnadu, Chennai, in RK Nagar by-polls, Tamil Nadu health minister C.Vijayabaskar allegedly distributed around Rs 89 crore to a number of his party-men to bribe and buy votes from people.
The usually selective speaker former Union finance minister P.Chidambaram took a jibe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi asking, “We were told demonetization has put an end to black money. Was money distributed in R K Nagar white money?”
Your promises seem to be at odds with truth.
Well, RSS and BJP are not ‘hindus’, they are pseudo ‘hindus’.
RSS and BJP are not democrats, they are pseudo democrats.
RSS and BJP are liars.
