Shillong, May 1: The All India Congress Committee (AICC) in charge of the Mahila Congress Shobha Oza said that the BJP ideology does not match with the realistic conditions in the North eastern states. She also echoed her senior leaders’ “satirical” views on the BJP and the Modi government as being a “commul” political party. Oza, who was in Shillong to attend the Meghalaya Pradesh Congress Party convention, launched a frontal attack against the BJP and the 11-month old rendra Modi Government. She said some BJP ministers were insensitive towards women, a reason that added more to the alleged ‘commul’ and ‘non secular’ colours of the government and the party at the helm of the affairs.

“Modi and his BJP coterie thought of launching an ideological battle in the North eastern states. It is not easy in the region,” stated the Congress Mahila chief during an interaction with a section of the press in Shillong on Friday.

The Congress Mahila chief who took on the BJP right, left and centre on the alleged commul and anti- secular policies said, “Its insensitiveness is apparent from the type of wishes to impose on how people should eat or live,” stated Oza adding, “Our diverse and secular India does not envisage that we should have the people with same physical features and physical looks”. Oza dared the BJP - which has an absolute majority in the Lok Sabha - to pass the 30% reservation bill for women. “We have a majority in the Rajya Sbha and we will ensure the facilitation of the legislation,” she said.
