Posters criticizing Narendra Modi’s Ramzan call put up across Capital


New Delhi: Criticizing Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his Ramzan call to Pakistan and Bangladesh, posters containing the pictures of BJP President Amit Shah and Prime Minister Narendra Modi were put up outside homes of senior BJP leaders at New Delhi by the supporters of former BJP General Secretary Sanjay Joshi.

Joshi had last month in a letter appealed to his supporters not to put up posters or malign the party saying that he is an active BJP worker and Narendra Modi is his leader. The posters contained their pictures but didn’t name them.

The posters read, “Pakistan, Bangladesh ko Ramzan par dete ho badhai, Sushma, Advani, Sanjay Joshi, Rajnath, Gadkari, Murli Manohar Joshi, Vasundhara ke liye mann mein hai khatai which means, Pakistan and Bangladesh are wished on Ramzan, but ill feelings are harboured against Sushma (Swaraj), Advani, Sanjay Joshi, Rajnath (Singh), (Nitin) Gadkari, Murli Manohar Joshi, Vasundhara (Raje).

It also questioned the developments undertaken by Prime Minister Narendra Modi saying, “Na samvaad, na mann ki baat, na sabka haath, na sabka vikas, phir kyun kare janta aap par vishwas.”

Joshi was sacked from BJP in 2005 after a sex scandal surfaced at the party’s national executive meet in Mumbai but was acquitted later by Madhya Pradesh Police.
