Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot on Friday raised slogans against the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for not giving tickets to Muslims during the elections and accused the BJP of using a Muslim leader to topple his government.
Gehlot said, “The BJP does not give tickets to Muslims during elections, but they are used to topple the government.” The Congress leader on Tuesday criticized Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his address at the centenary celebrations of Aligarh Muslim University (AMU).
“I have seen how the Prime Minister had a sweet talk at the AMU. He talked about secularism and many good things. But, does he practice? There is a difference in his speech and action, ”Gehlot said, accusing the BJP of not giving tickets to people belonging to minority communities.
Do they (BJP) give tickets to Muslims? Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh and other states have so many seats, but they do not give tickets to Muslims. There is now a budding Zafar Islam which the BJP uses as a tool to topple the governments of Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan, ”claimed Gehlot.
