Rijijus remark an attempt to polarise, garner votes: Cong

Congress party today termed as “irresponsible” Union minister Kiren Rijijus statement that Hindu population was decreasing in India as they “never convert people” and said it is an attempt to garner electoral gains out of polarisation on religious lines.

Congress spokesperson Manish Tewari said the BJP was making such statements out of “desperation” as it was “losing” in the five states where assembly polls are being held.

He also said the conduct of the MoS, Home Affairs, was “unbecoming” of a minister and that the intellectual quotient of NDA ministers was on the “decline”.
