Senior Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad on Wednesday said the BJP is best disciple of the British rulers.He made this statement while addressing a press conference in New Delhi to target Prime Minister Narendra Modi led National Democratic Alliance over the Bhima-Khoregaon violence in Pune in which a youth was killed on Monday.

Replying to a question, Azad alleged it was 24x7 agenda of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to divide and rule.

"Write ups, editorials are being written in international media how the ruling party, when it was in opposition, had been dividing the county in the name of caste and religion and ever since it has come to power, it has totally divided the country in the name of caste and religion. The only thing they have learnt from the Britishers is 'divide and rule'. They are the best disciples of the British rulers," Azad said.

The senior Congress leader and former union minister said atrocities on dalits have increased during Prime Minister Modi's rule."Atrocities are being inflicted on dalits since the last three and half years, since the BJP came to power in the centre. Its impact is also visible in the states, especially the BJP ruled states where dalits are being suppressed, killed, and raped," Azad said. -- ANI
