New Delhi: While agreeing with the Supreme Court's order of putting a ban on invoking of religion or caste by political parties to get votes in elections, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Tuesday asserted that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) never indulged in polarisation politics.

"We can debate whether religion is Dharma. Even sense of responsibility is Dharma. But I agree with the Supreme Court's order. Religion and caste based politics shouldn't be done. The BJP never indulged in polarization politics," Singh said.

 

Talking about the unrest in Manipur due to the protests by Naga group, the Union Home Minister said that the situation was much better in the north east as compared to the past.

"We have asked and written to the Manipur Chief Minister that the blockade should be removed," he added.

He further said that the government was not in favour of jumping to the option of imposing president's rule in any situation.
