Rahul Gandhi today attacked BJP and said that “an extremely nasty form of politics” is taking root in India and his party will “defeat the BJP in the next election”. He said this while he was addressing students at the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy, the National University of Singapore, Gandhi said, “We have been fighting the BJP and the RSS since the beginning. An extremely nasty form of politics is currently taking root in India. We will fight this nasty form of politics and we will defeat the BJP in the next election.”
He praised former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and criticised the NDA policy in Kashmir.He said,”Our Kashmir policy under Dr. Manmohan Singh was about building bridges with people. When UPA came to power in 2004, we were handed a J-K that was burning. We made a plan and worked on it for nine years. In 2014 when I went to J-K, I felt like crying. I saw what a bad political decision can to do years and years of policy-making”.Rahul also blamed the ruling BJP for being “less concerned about peace and tranquility”.
He said,”We see society as a system that has to be kept in balance. The BJP, on the other hand, is less concerned about peace and tranquility.”
