"The opposition has no issue so they are trying to create one", Rajnath Singh said. The BJP has alleged that the picture was taken early this morning. This is a cruel joke.

As the photographs went viral on social media, senior BJP leader Harish Khurana tweeted, "Wow, look at these Congress leaders".

In a press conference, BJP's Patra accused the Congress of indulging in "politics of luxury" and said that all Congress leaders and the members of the Nehru-Gandhi family are used to it, instead of the "politics of performance".

"Congress" Delhi unit chief Ajay Maken and former cabinet minister Arvinder Singh Lovely, along with other party leaders, were photographed digging into platefuls of chhole bhature at an eatery. The Congress party's "Sadhbhavna Upvas" (fast for harmony) was however not without a controversy as Delhi Congress leaders Sajjan Kumar and Jagdish Tytler, listed as accused for their alleged role in the riots, being asked to stay away from the stage where Rahul Gandhi and the other leaders were sitting. "It is an attempt by his party to fast-track his politics to burnish his credentials despite people rejecting him time and again", he told reporters.

"The entire country knows that PM Modi is anti-Dalit, it is not a secret.The BJP follows ideology of oppressing Dalits, tribals, minorities".

Hungarian Prime Minister Expected to Win Third Successive Term
Rivals say that leaves open the possibility of an upset and are urging voters to turn out in record numbers. If he wins, as is likely, Mr Orban has promised to cut income tax and pass pro-growth economic policies.

Rahul further expressed confidence of out powering BJP-led Centre in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls. He added that PM Modi is an anti-Dalit person and he does not have any place for Dalits in his heart.

BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra ridiculed the opposition party's fast against the alleged caste violence and communalism, saying its leaders had come to the Mahatma Gandhi's memorial to talk about non-violence but the presence of Kumar and Tytler exposed the party's "real violent" face. On asked what is his reaction to BJP MP's sending letters to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and complaining about the Dalit situation, Gandhi said that ask this question in Parliament.

Citing figures of anti-Dalit violence in five years of the Congress rule in the poll-bound Karnataka, he said the state had reported 9,080 cases crimes against the community and over 358 Dalits were killed. "Rahul Gandhi can not wake up early, he can not skip a meal and he is talking about bringing change in the country", BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra told reporters.

Another party spokesperson, G V L Narasimha Rao, termed the protest a farce done in the name of Dalit welfare.
