He said the Congress had been continuously highlighting the plight of these weaker sections, but the "hypocrite BJP leadership seems to be busy playing with fire by deliberately dividing society".

Briefing reporters on the BJP parliamentary party meeting, Union minister Ananth Kumar quoted the Prime Minister as saying that the Congress was "throttling" democracy and "abusing" people's mandate. Addressing BJP MPs on the party's foundation day, Modi kept the Congress in his line of fire and spelled out an exercise by party lawmakers and ministers for reaching out to villages with substantial Dalit and tribal population through implementation of his Government's seven key welfare schemes. They can not imagine that when we got the opportunity to elect a President on our own strength, we elected a person belonging to the Dalit community.

Its rivals are unable to reconcile to the fact that the BJP has become a party of the poor and has highest numbers of MPs and MLAs from scheduled castes and tribes, he said. This is not because we made a mistake. "They can not imagine that when we got the opportunity to elect a Deputy Speaker, we selected Shri Suraj Bhan, who belonged to the Dalit community and later Shri Karia Munda, who is a tribal leader".

Which first round playoff opponent could they upset — Washington Wizards
The Washington game makes some sense from a scheduling perspective, since the Celtics finish the season at home the next night. This would have been considered a successful season if the Sixers just made the postseason, but that's no longer the case.

While the ruling alliance led by the BJP is known for its "win after win", the Congress-led opposition's agenda was "remove Modi, snatch his chair" and its identity is "lie after lie". "What is happening on International Border and LoC and the serious turn which the situation has taken in Kashmir is self-explanatory of where we stand at this moment", he observed. Further, he wrote, "Being a Dalit, my capabilities were not put to use by the BJP".

BJP workers should work for everybody's benefits, he said. At least 11 people died and several others were injured in the "Bharat bandh" called on Monday by Dalit outfits to protest the softening of certain provisions of the SC/ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Act.

There is a sense of stimulation among the party workers in regard to the direct interaction with the Prime Minister. "So it is our national duty not to cede this space to them", he said.

"In the BJP there are no divisions, no dynasty politics and no I versus you". The BJP and its senior leaders were virtually ostracized from prevalent political scenario.

The world's largest political party, Bharatiya Janata Party is celebrating its Foundation Day on Friday.
