Cong's protest in black clothes with a message against the Ram Temple and ED, Price Rise Excuses: Sh
Several Congress leaders, including Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, were held by police for about six hours as they marched through the streets wearing black to protest the increase in prices and the unemployment rate.
The party's "appeasement" politics were invoked by Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Friday to convey the opposition to Prime Minister Narendra Modi laying the foundation stone for the Ram temple on this day in 2020 by the Congress leaders protesting in black clothing over the issues of price rise and unemployment.
Speaking to reporters at the Parliament House complex, Shah said that while everyone had recently witnessed Congress leaders protesting in their regular attire, they had specifically chosen black clothing for Friday's agitation because it was the day that Modi had peacefully settled a more than 550-year dispute involving the Ram Janmbhoomi in Ayodhya and carried out its "shilanyas."
He pointed out that work is currently in full swing on the temple, which is essential to the faith of millions of people. Shah argued that the ED action and price hikes were merely justifications, and that Congress had decided to protest the temple's laying of the foundation and ongoing construction by donning all-black attire.
He claimed that because the opposing party lacked the courage to publicly criticize the matter, it instead sent a covert message outlining its opposition to both the foundation-stone laying and the building of the temple.
"I do not doubt that the Congress selected August 5 to stage its loud protests in a display of opposition to the temple issue, "added he. The interior minister claimed that Congress's "appeasement politics" will not be abandoned "despite suffering numerous polling failures. He pointed out that since Parliament's monsoon session last month, Congress had been screaming about problems like the Enforcement Directorate's action against its leaders and price increases. He added that there was no ED activity on Friday and questioned what was so remarkable about today.
"On this day, Modi lay the cornerstone for the temple at Ram Janmbhoomi, which serves as the spiritual home to millions of people. The conflict had not been settled for more than 550 years, and the Congress, which had been in charge for most of the time since independence, took no action to do so. Modi placed the foundation stone for the temple while trying to reach a peaceful resolution. Today is that holy day, according to Shah.
All parties should leave the country since appeasement politics have done the nation great harm since independence, he argued. Several Congress leaders, including Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, were held by police for about six hours as they marched through the streets wearing black to protest the increase in prices and the unemployment rate.
