There is no ‘fire’ in Rahul, but Congress is playing with fire by trying to create Hindu-Muslim divide: Rajnath Singh

New Delhi. Defense Minister Rajnath Singh said there is no ‘fire’ in Congress leader Rahul Gandhi while his party is playing with fire by trying to create Hindu-Muslim divide for electoral gains. Singh also hinted in an interview to ‘PTI-Bhasha’ that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) will implement big schemes like Uniform Civil Code (UCC) and ‘One Nation, One Election’ if it comes to power for the third consecutive time. He also said that he is confident that the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) will cross the 400 seats mark and the BJP will get more than 370 seats as this estimate has been made after a detailed assessment of the ground situation.

Talking about the entire political scenario, the Defense Minister accused the Congress of trying to disturb social harmony and create tension on religious lines. “They are trying to create Hindu-Muslim divide for electoral gains,” he alleged. Congress is trying to create tension on religious grounds.” He said, ”Congress wants to disturb social harmony. They see the Muslim community only as a vote bank. I want to suggest them – politics should not be done only to form the government. The aim of politics should be nation building.” Singh said, ”There is no ‘fire’ in Rahul Gandhi, but Congress is playing with fire.”

The Defense Minister said that the people of the country will repose confidence in Prime Minister Narendra Modi and based on the performance of the government in the last five years, there will be a significant improvement in the number of BJP’s seats. He said, “Our seats in Uttar Pradesh and West Bengal. Will increase and we will get some seats in Tamil Nadu. Our account will be opened in Kerala also. We are also winning a good number of seats in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. He said that BJP will cross the 370 mark. Singh said, “Our seats will increase in Odisha, Jharkhand and Assam also. We will win all the seats in Chhattisgarh.

When asked whether BJP’s seats would reduce in Maharashtra, he did not give any direct answer, but said that the seats there could go up or down. The senior BJP leader hit out at Congress over its plan for “redistribution” of wealth, saying it will have disastrous consequences for the country’s economy. “The concept of redistribution of wealth will lead to recession,” Singh said. Argentina and Venezuela implemented it and suffered disastrous consequences. Investors will lose confidence in India.

On BJP implementing big schemes like UCC and ‘One Nation One Election’ after returning to power, Singh said that whatever promises it makes to the people of India, it also fulfills them. BJP in its election manifesto has pledged to implement UCC if returned to power. She has also said that the party will move forward with a resolve to implement ‘one nation, one election’. Singh said, “We always keep our promises. We will never allow our credibility to be questioned and will not compromise on the unity and integrity of the country. Whatever we say in our election manifesto, we implement it. Whatever we have said, we will have to fulfill it.” He said, ”We will move forward on the plan of ‘one nation, one election’. We will take opinion of every section including all political parties on this.

On UCC, the Defense Minister said that even the framers of the Constitution had felt the need for it, as it is mentioned in the Directive Principles. He said, “Congress wants to create an atmosphere of fear, they want to use the Hindu-Muslim card.” Singh alleged, “They have no problem. They want to form a government by dividing the society in the name of caste, race and religion and they have always done so.
