Congress an Exponent of Votebank Politics: Modi

Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi today accused the Congress party of being a "dyed-in-the-wool exponent of votebank politics".

"The difference is fundamentally that of style of politics. The BJP is forever committed towards politics for the development, whereas the Congress is a dyed-in-the-wool exponent of votebank politics," Modi wrote on his blog, countering Congress' attack on ruling BJP's development initiatives.

"The allegations against us are 'you built 350 schools instead of 500', or 'you promised 10 km road, but built only 8 km'. They are centered around development," he stated.

"But can we say the same for Congress? No! Nobody asks them about development. The only thing discussed about them is the number of scams and rising burden on the common man," he said.

"Gujarat has instilled a robust faith among the people in the political system and the institution of democracy, after it was systematically eroded by years of Congress rule after Independence," he said while taking a jibe at the Congress leadership.

Gujarat will go to polls on December 13 and 17 in two phases, he said adding, "If the Congress wants Gujarat, they must whole-heartedly embrace politics of development rather than votebank politics."

Modi is absolutely right in calling Congress as a "dyed-in-the-wool exponent of votebank politics". But, Congress will simply shift the blame saying that they are only following the policies set by the British.

Besides the Congress, the Indian Muslims must also share the blame for vitiating the politics of the country. They need to understand that there should be no connect between governance and religion.
