UNS to contest on 200 seats in Rajasthan, support PM Modi
New Delhi : Uttarrajya Navnirman Sena (UNS) announced that it will contest Rajasthan Assembly elections on 200 seats, in retaliation of the BJP government's atrocities on Hindus in the state. Launched in 2009 to oppose Maharashtra Navnirman Sena, UNS will fight elections for the first time.
Interestingly, Shambhu Nath Raigar who is currently in prison for Afrazul live murder case will also be one of the party candidates in the upcoming polls.
UPNS chief Amit Jani said that the police atrocities against Hindus in BJP governed states have forced him to fight elections.
Speaking at a press conference in New Delhi, Amit Jani accused BJP of misusing Hindus just as a vote bank. "BJP government garners votes on Hindutva plank and then breaks its spirit. A case was filed against me for calling Taj Mahal Tejomahaalya; Home Minister Rajnath Singh sent me to jail for fighting against stone-pelters in Kashmir; Vishwa Sanatan Sangh national spokesperson Updesh Rana was tortured in a Jaipur cell for six months; Bharat Mata's aarti was interrupted in Vidisha and Hindu workers were jailed.
"Fake story about Shambhu Nath Raigar's illicit relations are being spread to scare off soldiers of the love jihad war; Boby Katariya is being treated like a terrorist by Haryana Police. Even Pravin Bhai Togadia is being threatened with encounter to weaken the fight for Hindutva," he said.
Further accusing the government of dual stance on Padmaavat movie, Amit Jani said that it is crucial for Hindus to enter politics so that Hindu vote bank upset from BJP does not end up with Congress and Hindutva mission does not have to die down.
The UPNS chief alleged that the slogans 'Bharat desh mein rahna hai toh Allah hu Akbar kahna hai' were raised openly in Rajasthan but to no case was filed against it. "Sirohi killed 12-year-old son and his mother and accused has the government's mercy. The deceased's family in Shambhu Nath case was awarded Rs 50 Lakh, while in case of mother and son's death not even RS 100 were given to anyone," Sani said.
RSS parade was openly stone-pelted despite a Hindu government at the helm, he added.
Amit Jani said his party may give unconditional support to Narendra Modi in Lok Sabha polls in 2019, but in Rajasthan, the BJP government will have to pay the price of anti-Hindu activities. UNS chief also gave a new slogan - 'Modi tumse bair nahin, par Vasundhra tumhari khair nahin'.
He also informed the media that a grand Swabhiman Sammelan is being organised in Lucknow, the Parliamentary constituency of Home Minister Rajnath Singh, where the voice will be raised against police atrocities on Hindus.
Vishwa Sanatan Sangh national spokesperson Updesh Rana and poet Amit Sharma were also present during the press conference.
