Calcutta high court order slap in face of those who crossed all limits to woo Muslim votes: PM Modi | India News

NEW DELHI: Intensifying his attack on the opposition’s “politics of appeasement”, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday said the Calcutta high court order striking down the OBC status granted since 2010 in West Bengal was a “big slap” in the face of parties which were “crossing all limits” in their quest to win over the Muslim vote bank.
Kolkata HC has struck a big slap in the face of the INDI alliance.It (court) took action as West Bengal govt, in an arbitrary manner, had distributed OBC status to the Muslim community for their votes,” the PM said at a poll rally in Dwarka in West Delhi Lok Sabha constituency. “Ye tushtikaran ki sanak hadd paar kar rahi hai (Politics of appeasement has crossed all limits of madness). Today the court has slapped them in a big way,” the PM said.
“Friends, these Khan Market gang members are an equal stakeholder in this sin… These are the people who say that the Muslim community has the first right on country’s resources… These are the people who have allotted govt lands to the Waqf Board and seek votes in its favour,” he added.
The PM said the same group of the people had advocated 15% of the budget be reserved for the Muslim community and have also suggested that the community should be given preference in disbursement of loans and allocation of tenders for govt contracts.
BJP’s IT department head Amit Malviya said stung by Calcutta HC’s order, West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee seems to have decided to precipitate a constitutional crisis. “She refused to accept the verdict and attacked the judges. Calls it a ‘BJP order’ and vows that the reservation will continue. She can challenge the order in Supreme Court but for her to brazen it out shows her anti-OBC mindset, and that she won’t even stop at destroying the Constitution for political gains, and force down religion based illegal reservation for Muslims,” he said.
