Mangaluru: Religious polarisation by BJP is reason for defeat of Congress - Ivan D'Souza


Daijiworld Media Network - Mangaluru (MS)

Mangaluru, May 26: "As the BJP was successful to attract the votes, not only in our district but throughout the country, on the lines of religious polarisation instead of development, Congress got defeated in the Lok Sabha elections. Though the results of the elections have not brought happiness to us, we bow to the verdict of the people," said MLC Ivan D'Souza.

Ivan was speaking at the press conference that was held at the Congress office in the city on Saturday, May 25.

 

Ivan further said, "Though the Congress tried its best to win the elections, it did not succeed. People of the country have been made to believe that the achievements of the defence forces are the achievements of BJP. This kind of politics was not done by any party in the past 70 years of history of the country. The statements that were to be given by the chiefs of the defence forces are given by Prime Minister Modi and ministers of his cabinet and thereby people of the country are emotionally blackmailed. Development of the country is not given importance and only the security and defence of the nation is given more propaganda during the election campaign by the BJP."

"The result of Lok Sabha elections will not have any effect on the state. The coalition government in the state is safe. BJP is trying various tricks to bring down the coalition government from the day it was formed. But all the MLAs of Congress and JD (S) are united. The government is going to complete five year term," added Ivan.

    There were many who wanted to contest as MP in Mangalore, But congress high command thought and fielded Mithun as their candidate despite opposition assuming that who gonna bring many votes from the same community as well as from Hindus, But voters favored religion rather than development , So another five years no hopes for completing highways, fly over , no water.

    People simply blame Hindus/ BJP etc for polarization.
    Jusrt look into below facts and decide.
    Number of Muslim MPs in 2014 : 23
    Number of Muslim MPs in 2019 : 27

    Out of 27 MPs, invariably every single of them come from constituencies where the Muslim population exceeds 40%.

    12 out of these 27 MPs come from West Bengal (5) and Uttar Pradesh (7). Guess what - these are the 12 constituencies where their population is about or more than 40%.

    Similarly in Bihar, Katihar and Kishanganj have sent two Muslim MPs and both places have Muslim population > 40%.

    Other Muslim MPs come from Hyderabad (1), Kashmir (3) and Aurangabad (1).
    If you look at the demographics of this area, again Muslims comprise of minimum 40% of the population.

    BJP or for that matter any Hindu candidate hasn't won from any seat in India where Muslim population is 50% or more.

    So, if you are in illusion or are being politically correct to claim that Muslims have also voted for BJP, Ganga-Jamuni, blah blah.... Welcome to the world of numbers, facts and reality. I give a shit to political correctness.

    You can celebrate BJP victory or think of BJP government in power only when the demography is in your favour. If demography reverse (and the trends aren't healthy), they are soon going to take over. Within a few decades, everything will reverse.

    Am I propagating hatred against them ? NO.
    All I want is safety, security of Hindus, Hindu values and Hindu customs, on which this land has been built for the last 5,000-10,000 years.

    All I want is that every core BJP supporter now must push the government for a 2-child nationwide policy. It will not just control population, but also preserve the demography,

Pappu had fought election with Rafael where everyone knew nothing corruption & dont go behind one person, need to target opposition party. Everything is possible if your remove that buffoon & his family out of power.

    Your Congress party is also equally responsible for religious polarisation. Your continuous minority appeasement policies like shadi bhagyas, tippu jayanthi , haj subsidy etc over many decades has resulted in a feeling that Congress is a party for Muslims and Christians. Even the top leaders in Congress are muslims like Ahmed Patel, Gulam Nabi Azad or Christians like AK Anthony. Whereas BJP, because of their basic hindu ideology is seen by the majority as the party for Hindus. So naturally all Hindus or atleast majority of Hindus voted for BJP. It will not be surprising if BJP retains power at the center for another few decades or generations.

The marketing team of BJP worked superbly well and the strategy worked by BJP, execution of job ground/booth level workers is great.

But its a shame that you are accusing them of Howling when you yourself have howled at them in your comment. Why dont you stick to just praising BJP or howling at BJP ? I guess the same should be done by Congress supporters too. Don't fool people by accusing the other party and covering up BJP.

    Dear Ivan,

    I had great respect for you. But you lost not only mine but several other your followers, especially from your own community. You are exposed!

    During last 30 days of campaigning for Mithun, did you work from your heart? If so, why NOT a single word uttered against Nalin Kumar's failure of Pumpwell bridge, Surthkla illegal Toll, Nalin's statement on putting fire on DK, Nalin's abuse to Kadri PSI, and Nalin's abuse to Airport officials etc. ? No, you did not, becuase your friends in BJP insisted you NOT to raise such issues during the election atleast. Instead of that, they asked you only target Modi!. You did exactly as per BJP's instruction. Everytime you absued Modi, more polarisation taken place, many Congress based votes converted to BJP. You planned GOBACK MODI during PM's visit. Why? You convert more particular religion votes to BJP???

    So, today you have no moral right to criticize BJP or its polarisation.
    You are very good politician, request please leave Mangalore Congress clean and concentrate on state or national politician as a spokesperson. Until you are here in Mangalore Congress WILL NEVER WIN. I challenege that.

    Whether in cloud 9, wearing a hat or on top of a hill you would do well to know who your ruler is...and have your feet firmly on the ground or else the fall and the THUD accompanying it will be repeatedly painful.

    Ruler? You seem to have still stuck in the pre independence era. In post independent India we have only Sevaks and a Pradhan Sevak. Therefore you can safely end your prostration and relax.

    No Sir.

    Sanghi's in side the CongRSS are the main reason for the defeat of congress.

    I doubt, even Mithun Rai cast his voted for B J P

    Otherwise, where is Hindu votes.

    He got only Christian and Muslim votes. Where are the majority Hindu votes gone?

    Porbule, stop blaming now and start creating new problems instead get back to root causes of your party's dismal performance and poor leadership. People are now more educated than before and your old songs are not popular any more. Come with new strong clean leaders and new ideas to start preparing your luck for 2024.

    We always are not supposed to win, the citizens will always take the call, hence do positive work and get rewarded, Modi is given a second chance is purely because only party in majority can do decision making in Parliament . The first 5 years of BJP was that we have been made to believe that work or progress was done . The next 5 years we will truly see the Impact .

    Cent percent right. The campaign of BJP was only about Nationalism and Hindutva. No talks on VIKAAS.
    Take example of DK MP. People say they're not happy with the MP but they will vote for Modi. Who are the losers here? On development's perspective its 0 work completed.
    Other MP from twin district has nothing to talk about the achievement done in last 5 years but still ended up winning by huge margin. I Pity the Voters

    The reason for victory of balatakari party is for three reasons.
    1. They have used polarization of Hindus against minorities to a great extent.
    2. They used the achievements of defense forces as their own.
    3. EC has helped them a lot through EVM manipulation and stretching the election over a period of 38 days to facilitate the movement of Modi to all parts of India and also to make manipulation and transport of EVMs

    This country is going towards fascism from democracy.

    Ivan Sir…. Brutal thrash by all Karnataka people in particular and by all Indians in general is not enough??? Don’t try to blame anyone…. Go back to drawing room and try to come out from community minded working style…. No other go….. just try the basic…. Congress is the many decades old National Party…not belongs to any particular family or community…. Still people have faith in Congress but only people like you needs to change so that very same old people & new generation can vote for Congress again. Just pleasing any minority community will not work nor the free bees too

    I echo your sentiments expressed in your above comments Shettre. This guy again started to create a division on the basis of religion. I think he should listen to the PM Modiji's speech delivered yesterday in the Central hall of the parliament. It is a wonderful speech and PM specifically instructed his party cadres to work for all the sections of the masses without giving any importance to a particular religions. He especially talked about the inclusive development without having to see which religion benefits with his govt's welfare program. If what he said is true and if he is sincerely gong to work on his speech which he delivered yesterday, then I don't think there will be any other party in the near future which will even dare to compete against Modiji's party. I look forward for another 5 years of development and upliftment of the downtrodden under his Government. I wish our PM all the best and our prayers are with him.

    Both Modi and Amit Shah will realise the folly of their Communal Politics as the country will pay a heavy price in the future if we keep alienating the minorities. In the garb of minority apeasment they have openly stoked the majority appeasment to divide the nation. History and the country will never forgive them for sowing these seeds of division in our country just to capture power.

    Not only polarisation politics, the BJP has exploited to the hilt a pliable election commission to further their agenda to win elections at any cost even through unfair means.

    Exit polls and the corresponding results both in 2014 and 2019 clearly points to the EVM Gutala. I am sure the truth will one day finally come out that EVM's were hacked to hijack democracy in India. With such strong anti incumbancy across the country against the central govt and especially Modi, such sponsored victories with the help of EVM's with such wide victory margins clearly indicate that both the 2014 and 2019 elections have been rigged and reduced to a farce.

    Hello Congress Supportes
    Good day to all!
    Firstly stop blaming EVMs. EVM's are tested,inspected and approved by all the parties prior to its utilization in the poll. EVMs were also used in recent state assemby elecions in rajastan, madhya pradesh and many other states where congress had taken the lead n formed the govt. Even in 2019 Lok sabha such as kerala tamil nadu punjab where congress have no issues in evm's.
    But wherever congress lost they have an issue in EVM's.
    Com on guys, Be mature and accept the defeat. Introspect where you failed in forming stratergy?. Or else if you want to keep blaming EVM's hereafter then people of this great nation are too intelligent, Dont be surprised that congress will not even give close fight to BJP in 2024 election either.
    Note :indian EVM systems which is used for largest democracy in the world. Based on its success rate, Developed nation are introducing the same globally.

    So Analyse, form new stratergy, Encourage new leaders,Highlight the core issue of the country and work hard to be a strong party with great vision

    PEACE LOVER -Jai Hind
