Addressing the Rajasthan BJP booth functionaries, he also hit out at the state government over a host of issues including the murder of Udaipur tailor Kanhaiya Lal by Muslim extremists and the Karauli violence, and alleged the Congress can only practice politics of vote bank and appeasement.
“The Congress organised planned riots in Chabbra, Bhilwara, Karauli, Jodhpur, Chhittorgarh, Nohar, Mewat, Malpura and Jaipur,” he alleged in his address to the BJP event in Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot‘s home turf of Jodhpur.
Taking aim at Gandhi, Shah said, “I want to remind Rahul baba and other Congress members about his speech given in Parliament. Rahul baba had said India is not a nation. Rahul baba, in which book have you read this? This is the nation for which lakhs and lakhs of people have sacrificed their lives.” Rahul Gandhi has gone to connect Bharat, but I think that he needs to study Indian history first, Shah said.
