Number of 'Jumlas' will swell ahead of LS polls: Ashok Chavan

NAGPUR: Launching a sarcastic assault on ruling BJP, the Congress in Maharashtra Sunday said the federal government will unharness new set of "jumlas" (gimmicks) like quota for the general class, in the run-up to Lok Sabha elections.

Addressing a programme marking end result of the party's Sangharsh Yatra marketing campaign here, state Congress leader Ashok Chavan said his party's electoral victory in Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan has busted the parable that BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi are invincible.

"People are fed up with Modi government, they have lost patience. Now 'jumla' series number 2 has started- reservation for the general category. I wonder how many announcements will be made in the next 60 days, but they won't work as the next government will be ours. These 'jumlas' will come out through media but you will have to see the facts," he told a gathering.

The Parliament not too long ago cleared a Constitutional amendment invoice granting 10 consistent with cent reservation to the Economically Backward Class (EBC) among the general class.

Accusing the BJP of being power under the influence of alcohol, Chavan said the Congress never used arrogant language just like the BJP regardless of being in power for many years.

"Has party president Rahul Gandhi or Sonia Gandhi ever used such language like 'ukhad denge, fek denge'?" he asked the collection.

He additionally criticised the federal government over withdrawal of the invitation of famous author Nayantra Sahgal for the 92nd Marathi Sahitya Sammelan, which concluded Sunday in Yavatmal.

"Have we ever heard that litterateurs being stopped from expressing their views at literary meets fearing criticism? Government faces criticism from litterateurs many times on such platforms. They have the freedom of speech. Who has given the government the right to prevent authors from speaking?" he wondered.


This is violation of democracy but the other people will have to display the federal government what real democracy is by means of vote casting Congress again to power, he said.


The former leader minister said he used to be told that the BJP will use the "money power" to retain its rule in Maharashtra in upcoming assembly polls.


"But I want to tell BJP that the people of Maharashtra are not for sale. You think you can buy them ... people have seen through all your 'jumlas'," he said, adding that individuals are bored stiff with the "false promises" of the BJP governments.
