The 7th All India Hindu Convention to be held at Ramnathi in Ponda taluka from June 4 to 7 will discuss the failures of the Narendra Modi-led central government during its past 4-year regime, including inability of this government to handle a number of Hindutva-related demands such as implementing Uniform Civil Code, ban on cow slaughter, abrogation of Article 370 that confers special status on Jammu and Kashmir, construction of Ram Mandir in Ayodhya, increasing cases of religious conversions, infiltrators from Bangladesh and so on.
The national guide of Hindu Janajagruti Samiti, Charudatta Pingale addressing a press conference in the city on Friday informed that although the 4-day religious convention would not give any political direction to its participants, the disappointment of the Hindu fraternity towards the rule of the Modi government would be reflected in the event.
“Now it has become important to review whether the national policies of the political party coming to power after the 2019 Lok Sabha election would be nourishing the interests of Hindus or not,” Pingale added, pointing out that no one can take the Hindus in this country for granted anymore.
“This can be seen from the incidents wherein Rahul Gandhi had resorted to wearing the sacred thread, the left parties planning to hold Durga puja in West Bengal and Mulayam Singh Yadav coming in support of a Krishna temple,” he maintained, noting that the Hindus are now responding adequately to the policies of the Bharatiya Janata Party government, through ballot box as was seen during the recent election in Karnataka and the most recent by-polls.

Besides, deliberations will also be held on the protection of Hindus in Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal and Sri Lanka.
