Congress accuses Modi of not fulfilling promises

There was also all-round agreement that forthcoming Parliament sessions would be even less productive as the confrontation between the BJP and its opponents was only going to intensify in the run-up to elections.

"We are living in a time when the Opposition to BJP is at its highest. It is truly democratic and an only democratic political party can effectively serve a democratic nation", PM Modi in the video.

Criticising Modi over his comment that his government has honoured Ambedkar more than any other government, Raut said the Dalit icon himself was not supportive of the RSS or Hindu Mahasabha. "What is happening on International Border and LoC and the serious turn which the situation has taken in Kashmir is self-explanatory of where we stand at this moment", he observed. "They can not imagine that when we got the opportunity to elect a Deputy Speaker, we selected Shri Suraj Bhan, who belonged to the Dalit community and later Shri Karia Munda, who is a tribal leader".

The anger within Dalit MPs in the BJP appears to be on the surge with its Delhi MP Udit Raj now joining other lawmakers to express discontent over the way the issue is being handled. The BJP did not focus on casteism or dynasty, he said.

Mr Modi said that the Congress' opposition to him is turning "increasingly violent" due to the fact that people born in backward castes are in the country's top positions and also because of the rivals' discomfort with the BJP's rising strength.

Recently, violence erupted during a nationwide bandh by Dalits to protest the softening of provisions of the SC/ST Act. "In four years of rule, the BJP has worked tirelessly for the welfare of Dalits, underprivileged, illiterates", he said. "So it is our national duty not to cede this space to them", he said. For the past several days now, BJP leaders, including Parliamentary Affairs Minister Ananth Kumar, have sought to blame the Congress, especially its president Rahul Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi, for not allowing Parliament to function.

Raj, an IRS officer who resigned to join politics in 2003, followed it up with another on Sunday afternoon, which appeared as a clarification but left with scope for interpretation, with some suggesting it exposed the anti-Dalit stand of the party. By not even keeping up a single promise he had made to AP since BJP was never a force in AP nor a significant factor in AP, Modi seems to have ignored the genuine demands of AP.
