Sachin Pilot blamed Modi for Political Polarisation. Now the war is between the National BJP and Pseudo National Congress.

Polarisation the main agenda behind Narendra Modi's governance talks: Sachin Pilot. 

ET | Agencies | NEW DELHI :: Accusing BJP's Prime Ministerial candidateNarendra Modi of indulging in 'behind the curtains' polarisation, Sachin Pilot, Minister of Corporate Affairs on Tuesday said, "Behind all the talk of governance, investment, economic growth and opportunity that Mr Modi mentions in his speeches, the underlying agenda still remains Ayodhya, Hindutva."

"He may not talk about these things, he may not say it on camera, but his team and people are working to make sure that that polarisation happens," he said. "It's a narrow way of thinking, to believe that the supremacy of one section is of paramount importance," Pilot said. "I don't think like that. We have to be inclusive," he added.
Talking about the recent communal tensions in various parts of the country, Pilot said that the timing was very suspect. "All these communal tensions have taken place just prior to elections. Why do these things happen? Why is the undercurrent of polarisation unleashed at election time," he asked. "This is not healthy for our democracy," Pilot opined.
Watch: Sachin Pilot accuses Narendra Modi of polarisation
Recently, Narendra Modi's remarks on Article 370 of the Constitution triggered a debate with Congress and parties in Jammu and Kashmir rejecting any review of the provision, while BJP dismissed any suggestions that it has softened its stand on the issue.
His other remarks that women of Jammu and Kashmir are discriminated when they lose their rights of inheritance if they marry outside the state was also rebutted by mainstream parties in the state.
BJP leaders Arun Jaitley and Sushma Swaraj said it would be incorrect to interpret Modi's demand for a debate as a "softening" of the party's stand on Article 370.
Since his announcement as BJP's PM candidate for the 2014 elections, Narendra Modi has been aggressively rallying in various parts of the country, including poll-bound states like Madhya Pradesh, Delhi and Rajasthan.

BJP has a hidden agenda to polarise India: Sachin Pilot

Interview with Minister of Corporate Affairs

Business Standard | Mumbai:: Minister of Corporate Affairs Sachin Pilot downplayed Narendra Modi’s elevation to the post of prime ministerial candidate by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), and raised serious doubts over Modi’s ability to give broad-based leadership, when he cannot get unanimous support within the party. In an interview with Sanjay Jog & Abhijit Lele, he said the Congress would reach out to voters with a positive and not divisive agenda and expressed confidence that United Progressive Alliance (UPA) III would be a reality. Edited excerpts:

The BJP has finally anointed Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi as its prime ministerial candidate. How does it pose a challenge to the Congress party?

It would not have any effect on the Congress-led UPA. The entire process (of Modi’s coronation) has shown deep divisions within the BJP. The party simply dumped veteran leader L K Advani who was instrumental in its formation and leading it effectively over the years.

Does it pose a challenge to Rahul Gandhi, who is being seen as Congress nominee for the PM’s post?

Rahul Gandhi does not need any projection. Whom to project as a leader (Modi) is the BJP’s prerogative.
