Bengaluru: 'Support BJP if it is necessary' - Congress leader Roshan Baig tells Muslims


Daijiworld Media Network - Bengaluru (SP)

Bengaluru, May 21: Former minister, Roshan Baig, who is considered to be a staunch Congressman with sway over a section of Muslim votes, sprang a surprise by giving a call to Muslims to join hands with the BJP if it serves their needs.

In what is being termed as subtle hint of his intention to cross over to the BJP, a decision perhaps arising out of the prediction given in the exit polls, Roshan Bag said he is appealing to the Muslims to compromise with the current situation. He squarely blamed Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee president, Dinesh Gundu Rao, and other Congress legislature party leaders including former chief minister, Siddaramaiah, for sloppy, miserable poll campaign.

He said that if the NDA is coming back to power, he would appeal to the Muslim brothers to learn to compromise with the situation. He was replying to question raised by some media persons. When the media persons wanted to know whether he wants them to join hands with the BJP, he said that if the need is felt, they should do so, duly pointing out that the Congress had given ticket to just one Muslim leader in the recent election.

He said that there is no need to remain loyal to a single party, duly noting that in spite of the unflinching support extended by Muslims to Congress, that party was not willing to issue party ticket to more than one Muslim leader in the entire state. "If the circumstances so warrant, I will quit the party as the Muslims cannot live in disgrace when remaining loyal to a single party," he clarified, when questioned whether he would leave the Congress in near future.

"We do not want to remain in places where we are not respected. We want to live with dignity and self respect. If we are not respected, we do not want to stay there. If someone extends love and affection, we are ready to join them," he explained.

To another query on whom he holds responsible for the present state of Muslims in the state , Baig took the name of KPCC president, Dinesh Gundu Rao and other Congress legislature party leaders. He also advised these leaders who were soaring high, to realize the ground realities.

Baig said he was not surprised by the results of the exit polls. "I knew since the start that Congress would not fare well. The flop poll campaign is entirely responsible for this state of affairs," he commented.

    He is right about K C Venugopal, this discredited ma loo does not have the caliber to understand / guide in KN politics...he operates through chamchaagiri to siddha...Rahul should have handled KN congress affairs himself or he could have asked some very senior leader e.g. a k Antony or sheila dikshit to handle KN affairs...now looks like it is field day for BJP....

    Win or loss is the part of the game. Keep your principles and discipline. Just because your party is losing you change the sides.

    HDD and HDK have nothing to lose from the break of coalition. They will have their coffers filled by the cash rich BJP . A steady monthly Hafta is more than enough to keep the Gowdas silent and happy.
    But Cong is finished. Just look at the Mlore scenario, they have not won a MP election for 30 years .

    A tacit admission that Congress indulged in appeasement. Wondering what kind of compromise is he expecting vis-à-vis commitments made by congress.
    Need of the hour is neither compromise or appeasement. We need the following all of which are high priority.
    1. Job creation and a ecosystem that provides relevant skill set.
    2. Conducive atmosphere (technology, support from Govt, market regulation in favor of farmers) for achieving prosperity for those choosing agriculture as profession.
    3. Restoration of ground water levels must be taken up at war footing to ensure that all land at disposal is arable.
    4. Reduced dependency on China for supply chain management and make India manufacturing power house for high end products.
    5. Continue current strategy of containment of Pakistan whilst bringing stability back to J&K.

    It is well said that politicans have no faith in religion and political party. They look for seat + money only. This person is preparing to join BJP expecting good offer from BJP. He is ready to join any other party if they offer more to him. These people are power and money hungry.

    This is how use others for own benifits. Common every where. Time and talents of others use for their own benifits. Change like a wind. This is not new to me. Seen in west by some idiots says if it is benifits you for sure change your gear until you get control of those people. Eat in the same plate until have good times and the moment bad time come shit in the same plat and look other other side. What a shame.

    Don't go by one fly over which has been held up due to many reasons. Just travel from Mumbai to Gujarath or Mumbai to Delhi via Nasik, I dore, bhopal, gwalior and Agra. Just travel from Bnglr to Pune via chitradurga, davangere darwad. Or see development of roads in East Coast. See how many families got free gas irrespective of cast /creed /religion. Due to Jan shan subsidy is directly credited to respective accounts. No wastage or leakage of funds like during UPA time. Just in UP more than 3 lakh Muslims disappeared when direct benefit started as there were students only on books /register. See no trains from Mnglr to North

    It's high time members of minority communities should join and support the BJP in order to maintain and promote secularism in the country. Otherwise the party will be deemed a polarised communal party with control going into the hands of only one community.

    Dear Prashant you are 100 percent correct. BJP never cheated or sidelined muslims. It is always supporting muslims. bjp has even offered 10% of MP and MLA seats to Muslims. BJP is the only party which is taking care of minorities. BJP always support reservation for minorities. BJP is against communal disturbance and dealt strictly with people who manhandled muslims in the name of cow slaughter. BJP never supported the goondas who brutually killed muslims in the name of cow. BJP never banned cow slaughter. BJP is fully supporting beef export. BJP leaders themselves are owning beef exporting unit thereby supporting muslims. BJP is the only party who is supporting muslims. You will find muslim ministers in all state cabinets of bjp Govt. BJP is planning to give Home Ministry and include more muslims in the cabinet if it succeeds is clinching central govt.
