“Bulldoze The Hatred”: Rahul Gandhi Slams BJP Over Delhi Demolition Drive

New Delhi: Former Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday hit out at BJP for running bulldozers in violence-hit areas of Delhi and Madhya Pradesh and urged BJP to “bulldoze the hatred in their hearts”. Gandhi also wrote in his tweet regarding this matter that constitutional values ​​were demolished by this action.

Taking to Twitter, Rahul Gandhi tweeted that this is a violation of the constitutional values ​​of India. In this way the poor and minorities are being targeted. Instead of doing this, BJP should remove the hatred spread in the hearts of the people.

Earlier, Rahul Gandhi said, ‘Modi ji, recession is near. Small industries will die due to power cuts, which will lead to more jobs. Stop the bulldozer of hatred, start power plants. Industries will collapse, causing further loss of jobs, stop the bulldozers of hatred and start power plants.

Gandhi also raised the issue of alleged coal shortage in the country, which claims that coal reserves in power plants have depleted. The Congress leader tweeted, “The result of talking big in eight years is that only eight days of coal reserves are left.”

Earlier in the day, an anti-encroachment drive in Delhi’s Jahangirpuri, tense after last week’s communal clashes, was stopped following a Supreme Court order today but not before a bulldozer razed structures near the mosque at the centre of Saturday’s clash.

Shortly after bulldozers started razing shops and other structures in the violence-hit area, the Supreme Court, acting on a petition, ordered a halt and an urgent hearing tomorrow.

But even after the court’s order, the demolition continued for nearly two hours. The Mayor of the North Delhi Municipal Corporation, Raja Iqbal Singh, said they had yet to receive the order and would continue their job of removing illegal structures until they did.

As an excavator went on to tear down the gates of the mosque and shops near it amid rising tension in the area, lawyer Dushyant Dave complained to the Supreme Court. Chief Justice NV Ramana directed that the court order “must be communicated immediately to officials”.

This morning, nine bulldozers rolled into the locality and started razing shops and other structures amid heavy police presence. The anti-encroachment exercise was ordered after Delhi BJP chief Adesh Gupta wrote to the mayor, asking him to identify illegal constructions by “rioters” and demolish them.
