UP BJP MLA's remarks attempt to polarise people: CPI

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

Condemning BJP MLA Singh for saying that the 2019 polls would be fought on the lines of "Islam versus Bhagwan", the CPI said today that the people will "see through the sinister designs" to polarise them.

At a public meeting last night in Ballia, Singh said the 2019 polls "are going to be on the lines of versus Bharat... Islam versus Bhagwan. And so the respected people of the country, you have to decide whether it will be Islam which will win or Bhagwan."

D strongly condemned Singh's remarks and said the BJP was trying to polarise people on communal lines.

"This is what the BJP is trying to do. We have been saying that the BJP is trying to polarise people and playing the communal-religious line. The BJP is vitiating the situation for the sake of electoral gains," told

"This MLA articulated his party's understanding. The people will see through the sinister designs of the BJP, which is undermining the democratic policy and the electoral system of the country," he said.
