BJP national president J P Nadda on Monday assailed the opposition DMK in Tamil Nadu accusing it of being a “sheltering ground for people not working in the interest of the nation” and “always inciting feelings against national spirit.”
He appealed to his party members to give a befitting reply to the Dravidian party in the Assembly election due next year.
Attacking the M K Stalin-led party, Nadda said DMK has always been “inciting feelings against national spirit” and on a lookout to see to it that “national mainstream assimilation formation is always disrupted.”
Addressing the state BJP”s executive meeting via video conferencing from New Delhi, Nadda alleged the DMK was always “anti-development” and against the interest of the nation.
“In Tamil Nadu, the DMK has been a sheltering ground for people not working in the interest of the nation. You should see to it that we give a befitting reply to the people who are working against the interest of the nation,” he said.
Others too should ensure that the divisive forces do not get strengthened in Tamil Nadu, Nadda added.
Referring to YouTube channel Karuppar Kootam allegedly denigrating ”Kanda Shashti Kavacham,” sung in praise of Lord Murugan, Nadda said the enlightened people of Tamil Nadu agitated against the outfit.
But the fact been proven totally forgetten by BJP party president is that Karuppar Kootam is a brain child of RSS and the person who denigrated himself admitted in public openly that he been groomed and got trained by RSS . When this was made know to BJP leader vantathi Srinivasan by DMK Sr. leader appavu she remained stoic
The saffron party”s national president exuded confidence that in the coming times, the BJP will have a substantial share in municipal and Assembly elections in the state, and appealed to the party members to increase the vote share in Tamil Nadu.
“Tamil Nadu is a land of temples, very rich culture, architectural beauty, full of revolutionaries, freedom fighters, legendary administrators and worldwide known entrepreneurs. I bow to the people of Tamil Nadu for the rich culture they have,” he said.
Without mentioning anyone, he said Tamil Nadu which has been talking about Tamil language “for long” should realise that the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020 aims to encourage education through one”s mother tongue.
The NEP 2020 has come under attack from political parties including DMK for alleged “imposition of Hindi,” even as the ruling AIADMK has made it clear the state will only follow the two-language system in vogue for years, and not the three-language policy, which includes Hindi, as suggested in the NEP.
“I request you to talk about NEP…in independent India, under Prime Minister Narendra Modi”s dynamic rule, for the first time the government introduced an education policy which is Bharat Education Policy, reflecting the spirit of India. Do a deeper study of the NEP and see that the people of Tamil Nadu are brought into the national mainstream,” Nadda urged the senior office-bearers.
As per the NEP, the medium of instruction will be in the regional language, endorsing the spirit of Bharat, so that the base of education is stronger.
Exams in the current system are subjective and students memorise things and write them down. But in the NEP, a conceptual and analytical approach will be put in place, he said.
Both the rich and poor will get qualitative and affordable education. Acceptability has also been improved as local languages are set to be used as a mode of education till class VIII, he said.
Urging party members to put in place a mechanism to win elections, Nadda advised them to form a WhatsApp group at booth committee level and further strengthen the IT site.
The speeches of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and other leaders of the party and BJP”s achievements could be shared in the WhatsApp and IT groups in the regional language.
Recalling the efforts of Modi in leading the nation in the fight against COVID-19, he said the PM took a bold and timely decision to prepare the nation and 130 crore Indians to fight the pandemic, apparently referring to the lockdown in March.
But WHO data reveals for the past 2 weeks India is the top most country with highest number of Corona virus cases surpassing USA and Brazil . Currently India stands at 3rd rank in Number of covid-19 cases and globally ranked 4th with number of deaths touching 58,546 at the time of publishing this article
He claimed that the lockdown was practically a lockdown for political parties but for the BJP in Tamil Nadu it continued to work for the needy and ensured that everyone got what they needed.
