New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said that he has never spoken a single word against minorities and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is not only against minorities today but has never been against them. However, the Prime Minister clarified that he is not ready to accept anyone as a special citizen. Modi said these things in an interview given to PTI video on Sunday night. Amidst the opposition's allegations that the Prime Minister's election speeches were divisive and polarizing, this statement is his clearest statement so far regarding minorities.

'I have not spoken a single word against minorities'
Modi alleged that Congress has disregarded the secular fabric of the Constitution. He said his speeches during the election campaign were aimed at highlighting vote bank politics as well as the opposition parties' efforts to appease minorities. During the interview, when Modi was asked about the apprehensions created among the minorities by his statements, he said that I have not spoken a single word against the minorities.

The Prime Minister said that I am only speaking against the vote bank politics of Congress. Congress is working against the Constitution, this is what I have been saying. Modi said the framers of the Indian Constitution, including Baba Saheb Bhimrao Ambedkar and Jawaharlal Nehru, had decided that there would be no reservation on the basis of religion.

What will happen if Congress comes to power? Will give the property of Hindus to Muslims
He said that now you are turning away from him. It is my responsibility to disclose them. At that time there was no member of my party in the Constituent Assembly. It was a gathering of outstanding people from across the country. When the Prime Minister was once again asked whether minorities were never targeted in his election speeches, he said, BJP has never been against minorities. Not just today, but never.

The Prime Minister was also asked whether he really thought that if Congress came to power, it would give the property of Hindus to Muslims or was it just a statement made for publicity. On this Modi said, it is not just a question of me thinking like this. It is a sin to preach without any logic. I have never committed such a sin nor would I want to commit it. They (opposition) have launched such illogical campaigns.

The Prime Minister admitted that the day the Congress manifesto was released, he had said that it had the imprint of the Muslim League. He said that the Congress party should have refuted my statement on the same day and said that Modi ji, this is not right. The Prime Minister said, but he remained silent, so I felt it right that I have to tell this thing to the people of India gradually.

Modi raised questions on Congress manifesto
Modi claimed that the Congress manifesto has promised reservation to minorities in awarding contracts. He said, if you want to build a bridge then who will bid to get the contract? Someone with resources, expertise, technology. But if you want to bring reservation there also, then what will happen to the development of my country?

Congress leaders have accused Modi of distorting his manifesto out of context. Modi referred to former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's statement given at the National Development Council conference in 2006 that Muslims have the first right on the country's resources. The Prime Minister also referred to the Congress-led state government's decision to bring all Muslims in Karnataka under the Other Backward Class (OBC) reservation category. He said that they looted OBC reservation.
