BJP president Amit Shah has once again hit out at the Congress party. In his latest jibe he reportedly accused the grand old party of trying to “defame” Hindus by giving them a terror tag.
“Rahul (Gandhi) Baba’s party attempted to link the Hindu community with terrorism. It was a bid to defame Hindus across the world,” Shah said, addressing a rally in Paralakhemundi under the Berhampur Lok Sabha constituency, which will go to polls in the first phase on April 11.
the BJP chief said all the accused, including Swami Aseemanand, were recently acquitted in the Samjhauta Express blast case.
“Unfortunately, the then Congress government compromised with national security by allowing the real culprits in the case to go scot-free. These people have no concern for national security,” Shah said.
On the Balakot air strike, Shah said only the BJP-led central government could have taken such a decisive action.
“Effective air strike was carried out and terror camps inside Pakistan were destroyed. Such decisive action can only be taken by a BJP government,” he said.
Opposition parties, Shah alleged, are speaking the language of Pakistan, which gives “strength to terrorists”.
