Raipur:Launching a scathing attack on BJP and RSS, Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel on Wednesday said that the RSS and the BJP have done ‘Masters in Communalism and Conversion’. The BJP and the RSS have found reasons to disrupt the law and order on the pretext of Kawardha incident. However, Chhattisgarh government will not allow them to give a communal colour to the incident, said the Chief Minster prior to his departure from Raipur to attend religious programme at Mahamaya temple of Ratanpur, on Wednesday. He talked to the media at the helipad here.
The BJP and the RSS are running out of issues in Chhattisgarh. They cannot talk on the issue of farmers, labourers, tribals, SC, Trade and industries, said the Chief Minister.
The Chief Minister said that the business and trading was closed for a longer period owing to Corona and now started gaining momentum. But the BJP wants to disturb the business again by spreading hate and violence. “We cannot tolerate this,” said the Chief Minister, adding, he cannot take any incident lightly as the intention of some people has been damaging. If two people fights, it may be possible the two are brothers, or belong to two different religions. Brawl and quarrel happen but it is wrong to give a communal colour to all the incidents, said the Chief Minister. “We need to keep a close watch on such elements,” said the chief Minister.
RSS people here are like bonded labourer
The Chief Minister said that RSS people worked like a bonded labour for 15 years, but gained nothing and today even they don’t have any say. All of them are controlled from Nagpur like Naxal members are controlled from Andhra Pradesh, Telangana and other state, said the Chief Minister. People associated with these organisations here can take the bullet and fight for others. RSS people here have no existence, said the Chief Minister.
Baghel rejects Defence Minister’s claim
Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel rejected the claim of Defence Minister Rajnath Singh that Savarkar had apologized to British rulers following the instructions of Mahatma Gandhi. Baghel said that this is something new he heard. Mahatma Gandhi was in Vardha during that time while Savarkar was in jail.
Savarkar was responsible for partition
Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel said that Savarkarstayed with the Britisher after his apology and uttered not even a single word against them. In fact, Savarkaradopted the British policy of divide and rule. After his release from jail in 1925, Savarkar first talked about two nations, said Baghel. The concept of two nations - Pakistan and Hindustan – was said in 1925. In 1937, Muslim League passed the same proposal. Both Savarkar and Muslim league (communal forces) responsible for the partition, said Baghel.
