BJP only preaches nationalism, while Congress actually practices it: Tewari

  • | Friday | 17th May, 2024

Congress candidate from Chandigarh parliamentary constituency Manish Tewari on Thursday asserted that unlike the Bharatiya Janata Party, which only talks about nationalism with its characteristic jumlebazi, the Congress party and its leaders have a tradition and history of martyrdom and sacrificing their lives for the nation. Tewari reiterated the Congress welfare guarantees including doubling the free monthly ration to the poor, paying Rs 8500 every month to poor families and guaranteed first year jobs for all graduates and diploma holders. Replying to a question, during an interaction with reporters, that the BJP leaders were claiming that India had emerged stronger under the BJP rule, as compared to the Congress, Tewari retorted, yes verbally, but not practically, as it had weakened actually, while referring to China still occupying Indias land and the BJP leadership being timidly quiet. He pointed out, it was during the Congress regime under late Indira Gandhi that India divided Pakistan into two parts and created a new country, Bangladesh. He said that Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi laid down their lives for the unity and integrity of the country. Tewari, whose father Professor Vishwanath Tewari was also shot dead by Punjab militants during terrorism in Punjab, challenged the BJP leadership to quote one single example where their leaders have sacrificed their lives for the nation or made the country proud. Tewari shifting constituencies in every Lok Sabha election: Tandon Chandigarh: BJP candidate for Chandigarh Lok Sabha seat, Sanjay Tandon on Thursday asked the Congress nominee Manish Tewari to share with the voters in Chandigarh how his performance had been as an MP from Ludhiana and Shri Anandpur Sahib. Tandon said while Tewari has been claiming himself to be a national leader, it has always been a mystery why he has been changing his Lok Sabha constituency in every Lok Sabha election since 2014. "Now that he is contesting from Chandigarh, which constituency will he shift to in the 2029 Lok Sabha elections? Tandon questioned. Tandon wondered why the Congress nominees in Ludhiana and Shri Anandpur Sahib constituencies which were rarely represented by him in the past are not calling him to campaign in favour of the Congress. Tandon said that Tewari is the only MP who has been running from one constituency to another in the last 10 years for the simple reason that he has nothing to show back to his voters. "He is playing a similar trick on voters in Chandigarh", warned Tandon.
