But does it really matter? Not for the latter at least. #BJP #Congress #Dalits #InMyOpinion #Mahatma Gandhi #minorities #Rahul Gandhi #RSS

Congress’ mindless attacks on Narendra Modi reflect party’s intellectual emptiness

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, for a change, was less than direct in his attack on the Congress when he said on Thursday that post-1947, the BJP was subjected to treatment far worse than what the Congress endured during British rule #BJP #Congress #Dalit unrest #gau rakshaks #Ideology #Indira Gandhi #InMyOpinion #Jawaharlal Nehru #Narendra Modi
