PM Modi Says Congress Indulging In Caste Politics

Hitting out at the Indian National Congress, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday accused it of indulging in caste politics. At an election rally in poll-bound Rajasthan’s Alwar, he said the party had touched a “new low” and had forgotten all courtesies.

The prime minister also accused the Congress of using the threat of impeachment to “scare” judges. He added that the Congress did not remember BR Ambedkar and members of only one family were honoured with Bharat Ratna.

Accusing the Congress of dragging the judiciary into politics, he alleged that if a Supreme Court judge does not work as per their "politics" then Congress’ members of parliament start “scaring” them in the name of impeachment.

“This is a dangerous game. Congress has no faith in the judiciary. They are working to scare judiciary on the grounds of their numbers in the Rajya Sabha but I we will not let this 'kala karnama' happen in the temple of democracy,” he said.

“I would also like to tell judges that do not be afraid and keep going on the path of justice,” Modi said.
