Union Minister Anurag Thakur on Sunday said the Centre has no plans to call early Lok Sabha elections. While speaking to a private channel (India Today), Thakur clarified that the government has no intention of early election and Prime Minister Narendra Modi would like to serve India’s citizens till the last day of his current term.

His clarification comes after a buzz over early election in the wake of the government’s call for a special session of Parliament between September 18 and 22, without mentioning the agenda for the session.

Anurag Thakur on ‘Sanatan Dharma’ row

Thakur hit out at the I.N.D.I.A coalition over DMK leader Udhayanidhi Stalin’s remarks against ‘Sanatan Dharma’, saying a mere name change of the opposition alliance cannot hide the hatred it harbours against ‘Bharat’ and its rich culture.

“A name change from UPA to GHAMANDIA can’t hide the truth that this unholy alliance of corrupt people has not stopped hating Bharat, its rich culture and syncretic Sanatan Dharma which has been connecting the nation since ages,” the information and broadcasting minister said on X.

Thakur’s reaction came after Tamil Nadu minister Udhayanidhi Stalin alleged that ‘Sanatan Dharma’ is against equality and social justice, and that it should be eradicated.

Udayanidhi, son of Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M K Stalin, also likened ‘Sanatan Dharma’ to coronavirus, malaria, and dengue fever.

“It is not surprising that DMK or any other party of Ghamandia alliance nourishes so much hate against Hindus and Sanatan Dharma to the extent of equating it with ‘dengue’ and ‘malaria’ and provoking others to eradicate Sanatan Dharma,” Thakur said.

The BJP refers to the opposition INDIA bloc as ‘Ghamandia’, an alliance “full of selfishness” to further the culture of nepotism.

“Ghamandia represents a putrefied and highly decomposed form of secularism to the extent of breaking up society and the nation,” Thakur said.

“Such instances are glaring in Ghamandia-ruled states like Bihar, West Bengal, etc., where state-sponsored attacks on peaceful Ram Navami processions killed several innocent people,” he said.

“If Ghamandia has mistaken Sanatan, it should know that it is the soul of Bharat which even foreign invaders like Mughals could not destroy,” Thakur said.
