BJP has started a new social media campaign against Congress. The campaign launched on Tuesday has been named 'Desh Ki Badli Soch'. In this, the Independence Day speeches of Prime Minister Narendra Modi have been compared with the former Congress Prime Ministers of the country.
For this, BJP has shared many graphics on its Twitter handle containing speeches of PM Modi and former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Rajiv Gandhi, Indira Gandhi and Jawaharlal Nehru. Many allegations were also levelled against former prime ministers.
In one such tweet, the BJP alleged that Nehru did not pay tribute to the soldiers who died in the 1962 war in his 1963 Independence Day speech. At the same time, in his 2020 address, Modi remembered the soldiers who had sacrificed in the conflict with the Chinese army in Ladakh.
Quoting Manmohan Singh's speeches in 2008 and 2009, he is accused of appeasing a family. At the same time, it was done from PM Modi's 2014 speech, in which he said that the country has reached here because of the contribution of all the Prime Ministers.
In another tweet, the BJP said that Indira Gandhi had justified the decision to impose an emergency in 1975. Whereas in his 2017 speech, Modi described democracy as India's biggest strength. BJP has been targeting big personalities of Congress in its social media campaign.
Earlier, Congress President Sonia Gandhi on Monday alleged that a "self-obsessed" government is bent on downplaying the sacrifices of freedom fighters and the party. Sonia said- We will strongly oppose such efforts made for political gains.
Sonia had said these things a day after the BJP released a video. In this video, the reasons for the Partition were described by the BJP in its own way. In the video, the Congress leadership of that time was blamed and pictures were shown. At the same time, pictures of Jawaharlal Nehru and Mohammad Ali Jinnah were shown.
