Rajeev Ranjan Singh, the national president of the Janata Dal (United), took aim at Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his former allies, the BJP, on Friday in Patna. He called the PM a “trickster” (behrupiya) and said that this “imposter” (dhongi) must be found out.
The country, according to Mr. Singh, also known as Lalan Singh, has suffered under the BJP’s rule. He said that since Modi took office, more jobs have been lost than at any other time in India’s history since it became an independent country.
“Where did they (the BJP) offer jobs? The ledger is empty and there is no account. Bring a cheetah, they’ll say occasionally, or they’ll get a Ram temple built, they’ll say. Who are the Bhrupiyas? Whoever displays 12 forms in 12 days This party (BJP) as a whole is the same, “added he.
At a press conference, Lalan Singh, a trusted ally of Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, asserted that the Bhartiya Janata Party opposes reservations. He cited the 2015 Bihar assembly elections as evidence, claiming that RSS leader Mohan Bhagwat had stated that it was time to reexamine the reservation system before the polls.
“This is how the Bharatiya Janata Party thinks. The Bharatiya Janata Party is led by the RSS. “The control tower therefore suggested that the reservation system currently requires reconsideration,” he said he.
Mr. Singh, there are no “ati-pichhda wargs,” or extremely backward classes, outside of Bihar. “Jannayak Karpoori Thakur was the one who provided this. Karpoori Thakur recognised the most disadvantaged class for the first time in 1978 and provided reservation in state government positions. When Nitish Kumar became Chief Minister in 2005, he kept working toward the same goals as Jannayak Karpoori Thakur. He went on to say that the Bharatiya Janata Party, which was called the Jana Sangh at the time, stopped backing Karpoori Thakur in 1979 and forced him to step down as chief minister because of his decision in 1978 to give the Most Backward Classes reservation.
This is who they are, he said.
Nitish Kumar has set the Extremely Backward Classes (EBCs) as one of his target demographics.
The JD(U) leader continued to criticise PM Modi, calling him a “duplicate” for falsely claiming to be “ati-pichda (very backward)” while running for office.
“Only the OBC category is available in Gujarat (Other Backward Classes). Before being appointed Chief Minister of Gujarat, he (PM Modi) wasn’t even that. After assuming power, he succeeded in having his community admitted to the OBC list. He is a copy, not the real thing, “said he.”
Lalan Singh retaliated by using “obscene phrases” like “duplicate backward” against Prime Minister Modi, according to former deputy chief minister and Rajya Sabha member Sushil Kumar Modi. He claimed that the anti-feudal ethos of the party is demonstrated by this statement, he claimed.
Speaking at a gathering to welcome former BJP leader Pavandev Chandravanshi and his supporters who have joined the JD, Lalan Singh (U)
“You succeeded. “Now that you have joined a legitimate party, you are not a member of a phoney one,” he remarked to Mr. Chandravanshi, urging party members to reach out to the most underprivileged groups and caution them to be on the lookout for “behrupiya,” who will return with a new appearance.
