Attacking Congress for accusing the government of spreading the kind of hatred witnessed during the partition, BJP today alleged Congress divided the country in its lust for power and was now conspiring against the ‘pro-development’ dispensation after being thrown out of power from the Centre and many states.

Now there will be no division of the country and if it happens, it will happen in our enemy country, BJP national secretary Shrikant Sharma said as he hit out at senior Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad for his remarks at an event to felicitate Muslim freedom fighters.

“BJP condemns his comments. History is witness that it was Congress which divided the country in its lust for power…Our government is committed to all-round development of the country. Congress is frustrated and conspiring against this government by levelling all kind of baseless charges,” he said.

He alleged that a section of media is also involved in disinformation campaign against the government.

People rejected the Congress in 2014 and have thrown it out of power in many states, he said, insisting that the government is working for ‘sabka saath, sabka vikas’ but is being targeted as a part of conspiracy.

He noted that Congress leaders like Mani Shankar Aiyar and Salman Khurshid had targeted the Modi government from Pakistani soil with the former allegedly calling for toppling it.

“The least Congress can do is to not lecture us. We will continue to work for everybody’s development,” he said.

Azad had yesterday accused the Modi government of ‘creating distances’ among people in the country, alleging that attempts were being made to spread hatred of the kind witnessed during the partition.

    BJP must read history,specially Patel's letters between 1945-1950. BJP was non existent at that time.Had Nehru and Patel not agreed to Parion, situation would have been worse than Naokhalii and w Country could be engulphed by Civil War,which is evident from incidents of Punjab and Bengal. Jinnah had clarly told hijee about civil War. Misleading people by saying Parion is a gift of Power Hungary Congress Leaders is not only insult to Nehru and Patel it is an insult to the Nation. Congress united 656 states, but for it India Countries or Parion of the Country into several Countries. India was never one Country prior to British Govt and would not have become one Country but for Nehru and Patel. BJP must read details of How Independence act led to non- balkanisation of the Country and Simla event in this respect, which was the last effort of y.
