Addressing a Poll rally in Mahudha town of Kheda district, Union Home Minister Amit Shah alleged, “During the Congress rule in Gujarat (before 1995), communal riots were rampant. At that in Gujarat, Congress party leaders used to incite people of different communities and castes to fight against each other. Through such riots, Congress had strengthened its vote bank and did injustice to a large section of the society.” Amit Shah also claimed that Gujarat witnessed riots in 2002 because perpetrators became habitual of indulging in violence due to the prolonged support they received from the Congress.
Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) led Gujarat government has established “permanent peace” in the state by taking strict action against those who used to indulge in communal violence, BJP taught a lesson in 2002, to the elements who were involved in violence and they all left that path (of violence). They refrained from indulging in violence from 2002 till 2022, due to BJP led Gujarat government.
