Seeking to support Congress candidate from Vadgam assembly constituency, Jignesh Mevani, Rajya Sabha member of Uttar Pradesh Imran Pratapgarhi, said on Sunday that Mevani was fighting for “the cause of the people, for social change “.
Calling on voters to join Mevani as he submits his candidacy on November 15, Pratapgarhi said, “Kanhaiya Kumar also comes to support him… I call on you to support him and join him in large numbers. Jignesh is not just an MP… if he was, the Assam police wouldn’t have come to arrest him. He fights for the cause of the people, for social change. The BJP knows that if it succeeds, the biggest loss would be on the RSS discrimination policy.
Blaming the BJP government and Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the Morbi suspension bridge tragedy, Pratapgarhi said, without naming the prime minister, “After the tragedy, he changed his clothes three times a day and showed green flags at various events but Rahul Gandhi wore white and marched for the Bharat Jodo Yatra If the Morbi bridge had been repaired properly there would have been no need to whitewash the hospital As long as the government of Delhi will not change, these problems will not be solved.
The Urdu poet and politician from Uttar Pradesh said, “It’s a big battle, but you don’t have to give up. I stand in Gujarat where the bridge breaks when shaken, trains are damaged when hit by cattle and roads break when hit by a coconut for the inauguration. (Actor) Shah Rukh Khan’s son was hunted down because of a few grams of drugs but thousands of kilograms were seized at the port of Gujarat. No agency is ready to investigate.
Hitting AAP National Officer and Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal and All India Majlis-E-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM), he said: “You would say Congress is not in the fight but the AIMIM and the AAP are. I saw the truth of Kejriwal in Delhi. He didn’t say a word during the Delhi riots. Friends from Hyderabad… they are only competing for eight seats out of 119 in Telangana but here they will say they are competing for all seats. This fight is not about one or two MPs, but about how to change the government.
