New Delhi | Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) president Amit Shah on Thursday criticised Congress president Rahul Gandhi over his participation in the protest against the Central government over Scheduled Caste/Schedule Tribe Atrocities Bill.

In a series of Tweet attacking Rahul Gandhi, Amit Shah said, “Rahul Ji, when you are free from winking and disrupting Parliament, give some time to facts as well.  NDA Government, through a Cabinet decision and in Parliament ensured the strongest amendment to the Act.  Why are you protesting that? ”

Shah further alleged that “Would have been good if Congress President would have spoken about his Party’s treatment towards Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar, Babu Jagjivan Ram, and Sitaram Kesari. Congress’ way of treating Dalits is patronising and condescending. For years Congress insulted Dalit aspirations.”


Remembering former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi’s stand on Mandal Commision, Shah accused him of opposing the Mandal Commission’s report which recommended a reservation for the Other Backward Classes (OBC). Shah tweeted, “Mr.Rahul Gandhi expecting research and honesty is difficult from you but do read Mr. Rajiv Gandhi’s speech during Mandal when he opposed it tooth & nail. The sense of entitlement and hatred for backward communities comes out so clearly. And today you talk about Dalit welfare!”


After the Lok Sabha passed the Schedule Caste and Schedule Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Amendment Bill, 2018 the Congress party alleged that the government has now passed the bill thinking about next year’s Lok Sabha elections.
