Amit Shah's animal remarks on opposition speak of his shameful mindset: Congress

Congress president Rahul Gandhi meets supporters during his Jan Sampark Yatra in Shimoga on Tuesday

Marking the 38th foundation day of BJP on Friday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed thousands of booth karyakartas along with 734 district presidents and their respective teams from five Lok Sabha constituencies through the Narendra Modi app via video conferencing.

He said that it is because of its work that the BJP has spread its footprint throughout the country.

BSP supremo Mayawati lashed out at BJP national president Amit Shah on Saturday, saying that BJP was power-drunk that it was making the mistake of presuming that this is a country of foolish people.

"It is true that all the trains arrived late on Central and Western Railways, but we should not blame the railways as special trains are run for a specific goal and they are operated in a certain manner, so that the schedules of the regular trains are not hit or compromised", he said.

"Out of fear of the Modi wave, parties with different ideologies are joining hands to contest elections", Shah said. "Similarly, all these animals like snakes, dogs, cats and mongoose are coming together to fight the Modi flood [ahead of the 2019 General Elections]". He made the remark on the BJP's Foundation Day in Mumbai on Lucknow. He also asserted that the BJP would never take away reservations given to Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes, and would not allow the Congress to do so if it were to come to power.

She also blamed the government for the deadlock in Parliament.

Stressing on the major developments by the Narendra Modi led-BJP, he claimed that the BJP is the biggest political party and in the past the party has lost many saffron party workers.

The government and not the opposition needed to give a clarification on the budget session being washed off, she added.

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Amit Shah on Friday issued a clarification for his remarks on the opposition.

Later, Shah said his intention was not to equate Opposition parties to animals.

Congress communications in-charge Randeep Surjewala said Shah considers his political opponents as "dogs and cats" and that is due to arrogance that has reached his head.

"The countdown for 2019 Lok Sabha elections has begun".

Chief minister Devendra Fadnavis evoked Bal Thackeray, as he started his address by remembering BJP ideologues and stalwarts.

Sharma said, "The remarks made by Amit Shah are condemnable". They have repeatedly dragged the political discourse to a new low.

He reiterated that BJP will never tinker with the reservation policy in the country.
