Sitaram Yechury: 'Many Kings have fought battles in this country. Ramayana and Mahabharata are full of violence. Some people claim Hindus aren't violent inspite of narrating these epics'.
The Left Party Leader questioned on what basis some people are saying that there is a religion which engages in violence but Hindus don't. Citing the decision of the ruling party to field Sadhvi Pragya Thakur in Bhopal, He slammed BJP for relying on divisive politics and religious polarisation for the sake of votes.
Mr.Yechury told BJP is trying win 2019 Elections with Hindutva Agenda, Promising Construction of Ram Mandir, Abolition of Article 370 & 35A, NRC and Uniform Civil Code.
