As communal tension has reached an unprecedented height in India under the 18-month rule of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the opposition political parties are up in arms against government’s failure to stop the incidents of hatred and violence.

In his speech on increasing intolerance in India, Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi criticized Tuesday Modi and his party BJP in the Lok Sabha. He said that instead of ensuring peace among different communities, BJP and its leaders including Modi are encouraging hooligans who are spreading hatred with their words and violent acts in the country.

Rahul mentioned various incidents of human rights violations where Modi government used force to crush the voices of dissent. He said that Modi and his party leaders are divesting the people of India of their fundamental right of free speech given to them by the Constitution of India.

The Congress leader counted a number of cases of Modi government’s cruelty against Indians. Rahul mentioned about the returning of awards in protest by the Indian intelligentsia, vulgar language being used by BJP leaders against Indians, false sedition cases that are being filed against people who protest against Modi government, and so on.

As Narendra Modi is finding it extremely difficult to face the increasing number of agitations against him, he prefers to spend most of his time away from India.

Under Modi’s 18-month rule, the country of 1.25 billion people has gone back by almost 18 years. Today, the people of India are suffering under the unprecedented poverty, back-breaking inflation, economic turbulence, and communal tension in all parts of the country.

There are widespread protests from common people, award-winning writers, opposition parties, and even the people who belong to Modi’s own political outfit BJP against Modi’s incompetence to run the country.
