Madhya Pradesh BJP Leader P Muralidhar Rao Says Brahmins, Baniyas In Our Pocket, Apologise, Says Congress


P Muralidhar Rao is the BJP’s state-in-charge for Madhya Pradesh


  • Congress has slammed BJP for “professing legal rights (about these two teams)”.&#13
  • Mr Rao slammed the Congress for “distorting” his response to a issue.&#13
  • He also accused Congress of having “betrayed and divided all sections”.


BJP leader P Muralidhar Rao’s comment about the brahmin and baniya communities getting in “my pockets” have activated a substantial row in Madhya Pradesh, with the opposition Congress demanding an apology and slamming the ruling celebration for “declaring legal rights (over these two groups)”.

Mr Rao, who is a BJP General Secretary and the party’s condition-in-charge, has countered by attacking the Congress for “distorting” his reaction – a entire model of which can be listened to in a three-minute movie that has been broadly circulated – to a reporter’s issue.

The BJP leader also accused the Congress of possessing “betrayed and divided all sections”, and singled the GOP out for “injustice” because “if STs are backward, the only motive is the Congress”.

The contentious exchange took position involving Mr Rao and some reporters at a press convention in Bhopal to announce the BJP’s focus on marginalised communities – “not as vote banking institutions, but to deal with their issues, like backwardness, (un) employment and (deficiency of) instruction”.

A reporter pointed out the focus on specific communities ran opposite to the BJP’s a lot-vaunted political tagline is “sabka saath, sabka vikas (with all, for everyone’s advancement)”.

To this Mr Rao at first replied: “Hear… hear… in a single pocket I have brahmins and in one more I have baniyas…” and then the gathered reporters commenced throwing questions at him.

“When the amount of folks belonging to sure sections was better (i.e., their quantities inside the BJP was better), people utilised to say the celebration belongs to them. When there had been brahmins you called us brahmin party… when there have been baniyas, you identified as us baniya occasion…” Mr Rao explained.

Mr Rao then admonishes the reporters for not listening to him.

“I am indicating our bash was begun for everyone. We are doing work to insert much more persons (as members and workers) from SC/ST communities following locating their figures decrease. We are inducting as is needed for representation. We are achieving out to all… to make the BJP a party for every single team,” he explained.

“This suggests we are not leaving out brahmins or baniyas or any group. This is not just social… even territorial. Before you named us Delhi social gathering, then gully social gathering. Now we are also heading to villages and bastis. We are emerging in a genuine feeling as a national get together,” Mr Rao declared.

The remarks provoked a furious reaction from the Congress and previous Main Minister Kamal Nath, who accused BJP leaders of starting to be “arrogant due to electrical power”.

“This is an insult as the BJP is boasting its correct about them. What kind of respect is specified to these courses whose leaders played an significant position in setting up the BJP? BJP leaders have grow to be arrogant thanks to power,” he stated, calling on the get together to apologise to these communities.
