BJP Leader Subramanian Swamy Supports Union Minister Prasad’s Statement On MuslimsApril 22, 2017 17:37
The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Subramanian Swamy, has backed the statement made by the Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad on Muslims, and termed it correct.
Ravi Shankar Prasad stated that, “despite the government giving them “proper sanctity”, the Muslims do not vote for the BJP.
Swamy said, “He is correct and that is the correct constitutional procedure because once the election has taken place and you have got a mandate, then we are government of hundred percent people, that includes Muslims. So after that, we don't see who all have voted and who haven't. So what Ravi Shankar Prasad is saying is correct.”
The Union Minister, who addressed a Mindmine Summit on friday, said, “We have got thirteen chief ministers of our own. Have we witnessed any Muslim gentleman working in the industry or service? We don't get Muslim votes. I acknowledged very clearly, but have we given them proper sanctity or not?”
Prasad quipped, “We have a problem with some of our friends. Mostly, the Leftist friends and journalists who entertain a pathological hatred of Narendra Modi. Good luck to them.” The Union Minister also stated that, Left is “left out” all over the world and has also faced defeat in India.
“They are left out in Bengal, are surviving in Kerala and Tripura, but the Left has got a very good campus in Delhi, which is the JNU (Jawaharlal Nehru University) and I always say the Left also needs some consolation prize. So, JNU is their consolation prize, we do not mind that,” Prasad said.
