Congress on Monday attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) chief Amit Shah alleging “motor mouth offenders” of the ruling party were trying to “communalise and politicise” a grave human tragedy after MP Sakshi Maharaj reportedly ascribed the earthquake in Nepal to Rahul Gandhi’s visit to Kedarnath temple.

“…In a most unfortunate and petty manner, certain habitual motor mouth offenders of the BJP — cohorts of the Prime Minister and BJP President Amit Shah — are trying to communalise and politicise a grave human tragedy.

“If media reports are to be believed, BJP leader and MP Sakshi Maharaj now famous for asking women to produce 10 babies, eulogising the killers of Mahatma Gandhi and comparing humans with dogs for sterilisation, are now ascribing the earthquake in Nepal to Rahul Gandhi’s visit to Bhagwan Kedarnath,” party spokesperson Sushmita Dev told reporters at the AICC briefing.

Dev said in doing so, he has not only “denigrated” all those who have faith in Bhagwan Kedarnath but the victims of this huge tragedy.

“It will be better if the PM and Amit Shah stop perpetuating rabid politics that has now reached the stage of denigrating even Bhagwan Kedarnath through his chosen cohorts. We demand that the PM and Amit Shah take immediate action against Sakshi Maharaj,” she said.

Reports had it, BJP MP Saksha Maharaj and VHP functionary Sadhvi Prachi linked the earthquake in Nepal to Rahul Gandhi’s Kedarnath visit.

Speaking to media in Haridwar, Sakshi Maharaj reportedly said that since Rahul Gandhi…went to the holy shrine without purifying himself, the earthquake was bound to happen.

While slamming the BJP leader’s remarks, Dev said our attention and efforts at this time should be aimed at relief, rescue and rehabilitation.

She also chose the occasion to flag the need to have concrete plan of action to mitigate disaster caused by Earth quakes in the NCR region.

“It is equally alarming to see that the capital of India – Delhi as also the National Capital Region(NCR) has no approved state disaster management and mitigation plan,” she said.

Dev said that the Delhi Disaster Management Authority (DDMA) formulated the draft policy way back in March 2014, and the National Disaster Management Authority has seen presentations on it but since March 2014 there has been no progress in finalising the report.

“The government and NDMA- both of which are headed by the PM are requested to pay immediate attention to finalise the plan,” she said.

The Congress spokesperson said that her party MPs have decided to donate one month’s salary.

                  Rahul hi is useless man who has no capacity to lead Congress party. He is busy in travelling abroad for merrymaking & is not attending Parliament. Congress leaders are making hue & cry over scam India statement by Modi which is factual position which resulted in complete stoppage of FDI during UPA govts which was responsible for gigantic scams like Coalgate, 2G, CWG, Defencegate, Purchases of aircraft for AI. This corrupt act of UPA shattered confidence of foreign investors on India. Ultimately people ousted Congress party from Lok Sabha. BJP govt should ensure strongest corruption law to be introduced with provision to seize all ets of corrupts since corrupt politicians of country have now become worst than naxalites in looting public money which completely paralyzed development of country in last 10 years. The people should also act in sensible manner by ousting corrupt & non-performing parties of country otherwise economic situation of country will never improve.

                              Shakshi Maharaj is good for nothing and it's worthless to speak about such a person who is mentally sick. Our Prime Minister is working hard for the development of country but it's poor to see that his own party people are coming on his way as big hurdle. BJP should throw such people out of the party for the success of Prime Minister's efforts.

                                    Congress has a dubious standard. When their Khurshids & Aiyers make ty & cheap remarks about Mr. Modi, they don't even bother but if someone says any thing about their Prince or the Queen, all the congress will jump in ring to castigate the person/party. How pathetic.

                                            You can also say that because Al-Baghdadi gone to Iraq & Syria, a Caliphate is borne there which rapes their own women & loot/murder their own men.
