Furthermore, he added that, when it came to the Adani controversy and Rahul Gandhi’s stinging questions, Modi didn’t have a single word to defend himself. On the contrary, he noticed that the issue has spread to villages, which might do the BJP considerable damage in the 2024 elections.

According to Satyapal Malik, the Adani-Hindenburg controversy would be the Modi government’s Achilles heel. But for this the Opposition should unite for the 2024 Lok Sabha elections.
“It’s (the Adani-Hindenburg scandal) an election issue.” If they (the Modi government) do not improve, the Adani (gate) will destroy them. If the opposition has a one-on-one debate, they (the Modi government) will not be rescued. “He (the PM) couldn’t say anything in his defence (in Parliament),” Malik remarked.
How BJP treat Muslims
In addition to that, he out rightly criticised the Prime Minister, his cabinet, and the BJP’s treatment of Muslims. “They are mistaken in believing that India can survive by excluding its Muslims.” “Their trust should be earned,” he added, adding that any administration that attempts to alienate any group of people is wrong.
