Guj polls a battle b/w 'Ram rajya' and 'Rome rajya': BJP MP

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

MP Virendra Singh Mast today described the upcoming polls as a battle between "Ram rajya" and "rajya", claiming that Prime Minister Modi symbolised the former.

Singh, heading the party's farmer cell, cited the recent statement of the Archbishop of Gandhinagar in which the latter called for defeat of "nationalist forces".

The Archbishop had last month written a letter urging members of the Christian community to save the country from "nationalist forces" as he said the "democratic fabric" of the country was at stake, amidst growing "sense of insecurity" among minorities.

The MP also lashed out at the Congress, which, he alleged, symbolised "rajya".

"The polls are a contest between 'Ram rajya and rajya'. Modi is the symbol of 'Ram rajya' in our times. The will certainly win," he said.

The much-anticipated polls are slated for December 9 and December 14.
