“Bade miyan”, “chhote miyan” using religion for political ends: Priyanka Gandhi Vadra
During a roadshow to campaign for Ludhiana’s congressional candidates – Bharat Bhushan Ashu, Surinder Dawar, Rakesh Pandey and Sanjay Talwar – AICC General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi said on Thursday that Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal were ‘bade miyan’ and ‘chote miyan’ and said their governance is only visible in advertisements. She also accused BJP and AAP of using religion and sentiment to political purposes. “Modiji’s governance is only in the ads. There is no governance in the country. If there had been governance, there would have been employment and no rise prices.
Tackling the BJP and the AAP, she said, “Both of them use religion, feelings to do politics. They don’t do development. “Both are products of RSS. While one was born in the RSS, the other is the creation of the Anna Hazare movement which was sponsored by the RSS. One brings the agricultural laws while the other was the first to notify them,” Priyanka said. She said the 111 days performance of Punjab CM Charanjit Singh Channi was much better than the seven years of Kejriwal government in Delhi.
