AICC secretary Shakeel Ahmed’s comments on Gujarat riots was part of a greater conspiracy by the Congress, party national executive member K Lakshman said here on Wednesday.
He along with party spokesperson NVVS Prabhakar released the posters of Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi’s proposed youth conclave ‘Nava Bharat Yuva Bheri’ scheduled to be held here on August 11.
Lakshman said the youth conclave is being organised as part of BJP’s plan to organise meetings in 100 cities of the country. It is estimated that about 20 per cent of the first-time voters would cast their votes in the 2014 general elections and to attract this segment the BJP was organising these meetings, Lakshman said.
Accusing Congress of trying to communalise the coming elections, he said as the Congress was not able to curb Modi it was trying to make communal allegations against him.
The UPA government has failed in all fronts and hence trying to defame the BJP and gain political mileage, he alleged. On the panchayat elections, he said though the poll results were not up to their expectations but they are happy with the outcome. About 102 BJP supported candidates have registered victory in the first phase of gram panchayat elections.
He said BJP supported candidates won 20 sarpanch posts in Ranga Reddy district, 21 in Mahbubnagar, 21 in Karimnagar, 8 in Medak, 5 in Warangal, 15 in Nizamabad, 8 in Nalgonda, 2 each in East Godavari and Prakasam and one in Kurnool district.
