Modi praised so much from the heart, then why did Kharge comment on ‘Ravana’?

New Delhi: The matter is not very old. It was the last day of the 16th Lok Sabha. Mallikarjun Kharge was highly praised by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. During his speech, the PM had said that Kharge had a lot of role in the fertilizer and water that his speeches got. Kharge’s words were very useful in awakening his thought-consciousness. Even when Kharge became the Congress President, PM Modi congratulated him for the new responsibility. Then how did Kharge go astray? His ‘Kharge Ravana’ statement for the PM before the Gujarat elections has become a cause of ruckus. This has heated up the political mercury. During the Gujarat assembly elections (Gujarat elections 2022) campaign, the war of words between the BJP and the Congress has intensified over Modi’s statement about ‘Ravana’. BJP has termed it as an insult to every Gujarati. Appealed to the Gujaratis to avenge this in a democratic way by connecting it. Congress has also retaliated. The party has said that BJP’s attack on Kharge reflects its anti-Dalit mindset.

What did Kharge say?
While addressing an election rally in Ahmedabad’s Behrampura, Kharge took a jibe on Monday. He had made this comment about seeking votes in the name of PM Modi in the elections to Municipal Corporation, Municipal Corporation and Vidhansabha. Kharge had said, ‘Is Modi going to come here and do municipal work? Is Modi going to come here and help you in trouble? Arey, you are the prime minister. You have been given a task. Do that work.’

Kharge had said, ‘He leaves Municipal Corporation elections, MLA elections, MP elections… Since he wants to become the Prime Minister, he keeps on roaming. But he talks about himself all the time. Don’t look at anyone, vote after seeing Modi. Brother, how many times have I seen your face. Seeing your face in Municipal Corporation also, seeing your face in MLA election also… Your face in MP election also… Everywhere… How many are there brothers… Do you have hundred faces like Ravana. What is it?… I do not understand.’

BJP became the attacker
This is where the ruckus started. Chief Minister Bhupendra Patel tweeted that without any development agenda and support of the people, the Congress is bent on abusing Gujarat and Gujaratis. Kharge’s statement against the Prime Minister is proof of his hatred towards Gujaratis. The people of Gujarat will reject him this time also for such behaviour.

BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra said that it is not appropriate for the Prime Minister to use such language for a Gujarati son. This is condemnable. This shows the mentality of Congress.
Patra claimed that Kharge used the term against the PM at the behest of former Congress President Sonia Gandhi. Gandhi family hates PM Modi. That’s why Sonia Gandhi called him ‘merchant of death’. Other Congress leaders continuously made derogatory remarks against him.

Congress counterattack
In contrast, the Congress on Tuesday alleged that Bharatiya Janata Party leader Amit Malviya has spewed anti-Dalit venom by calling Mallikarjun Kharge a ‘fringe’ (chaotic). This shows the mentality of BJP.

Retweeting Malviya’s tweet, Congress spokesperson Pawan Khera said why the BJP is unable to digest the fact that a Dalit has become the elected president of the Congress?

Another spokesperson Supriya Shrinate said, ‘You have the audacity to call a person coming from an underprivileged background and winning elections for the last 55 years as a ‘fringe’. We are proud of Kharge ji as Congress President. It is time that you people stop spewing anti-Dalit venom. Your brigade spreading fake news is ‘fringe’.

Polling for the 182-member Assembly of BJP-ruled Gujarat will be held in two phases on December 1 and 5. PM Modi is campaigning extensively for BJP candidates.
