"Our very popular Chief Minister Narendra bhai is being attacked. Such attacks have been happening for a long time, that is not a matter of concern. However, truth is truth. But I think, we should all stand strongly and we can use social media in this. We can tell the people how attempts to defame and malign are being made," Singh said.
"I think this trend has increased mainly after the appointment of Modi as the campaign committee chief, it is going to increase further in future," he added while addressing a national committee meeting of BJP's Information Technology (IT) cell in New Delhi.
The BJP chief also asked the party's ‘e-workers’ to make the people aware through the social media of various attempts which are being made to to ‘malign’ Modi.
Rajnath also said that the government perceives that it cannot win the next elections on the basis of achievements. To divert the attention of the people from its ‘failures’, the government is trying another method, it is trying to make it an issue of communalism versus secularism, he added.
"We need to tell the people through social media that the Congress is the biggest communal party in the country", Singh told his party's IT cell.
He said that despite having ruled the country for a long time, the Congress government had ‘failed’ to create social harmony.
Singh also told the members of IT cell of his party that there is need to highlight the ‘failures’ of Congress-led UPA government among the people. He said that people should be told that the value of the money they are earning is coming down.
