Rajnath Blames Congress and AAP for Lack of Trust in Indian Politics

Rajnath Singh Blames Congress and AAP for Trust Issues in Indian Politics

New Delhi: Senior BJP leader and Defence Minister Rajnath Singh has criticized opposition INDIA bloc partners, Congress and AAP, accusing them of causing a credibility crisis in Indian politics. Speaking at an election rally in support of BJP’s West Delhi Lok Sabha candidate Kamaljeet Sehrawat, Singh claimed that these parties have significantly contributed to the public’s mistrust.

Singh’s comments came just before the campaign for the May 25 round of polling ended. He took aim at the Congress and AAP, which have formed a seat-sharing arrangement for the general elections in Delhi. “The leaders of the Congress and AAP have contributed the most to the crisis of credibility in the politics of India,” he said. In Delhi, AAP is contesting four seats while Congress is contesting three, with all seven constituencies going to polls in the sixth phase of the elections.

In a pointed attack on Delhi Chief Minister and AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal, Singh criticized Kejriwal for continuing to hold office despite being arrested and jailed in connection with a money laundering case linked to the Delhi excise policy. “I have heard about work from office and work from home. The chief minister here has done the miracle of work from jail,” Singh remarked. Kejriwal was released on interim bail on May 10 following a Supreme Court order but is required to surrender on June 2.

Singh also addressed the alleged assault on AAP Rajya Sabha member Swati Maliwal, calling it a “heart-rending” incident. He criticized Kejriwal for his delayed response, stating, “A person in whose presence a woman was beaten up in his house says probe is going on. Such people are cowards. A brave person is one who accepts that a mistake has been committed and is prepared to face the consequences.”

The Defence Minister went further, suggesting that parties like AAP should be eliminated from Indian politics. “Parties like AAP should be wiped out from the country’s politics. They have no moral right to remain in politics,” he asserted.

Singh highlighted the achievements of the Narendra Modi government, noting that India has risen from the eleventh to the fifth largest economy in the world over the past eight years. “Prominent financial firms are claiming that India is the fastest growing economy. With this speed, it will become the third largest economy in the world,” he stated.

Looking to the future, Singh expressed confidence that by 2070, India would become the world’s richest economy. He also emphasized that India’s aspiration to be a superpower is not about territorial aggression but about global welfare. “We do not want to become a superpower to attack any country or grab even one inch of its land. We wish this for the welfare of the world,” he said.

Finally, Singh reaffirmed the BJP’s commitment to its promises, citing the scrapping of Article 370, the abolition of triple talaq, and the construction of the Ram temple in Ayodhya as examples of the party’s dedication to its word.
