Congress listening to language of separatists: BJP
June 22, 2018  17:25
The BJP on Friday criticised the Congress Party for listening to the language of separatists. The BJP's comments came in response to Congress leader Saifuddin Soz comments on Kashmiri independence.

Addressing the media, Union Minister for Law and Justice Ravi Shankar Prasad said that the Congress under the leadership of Rahul Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi was strengthening anti-India forces.

Prasad said Ghulam Nabi Azad's comments on the Army were "irresponsible, shameful and deeply regrettable."

On Thursday, Azad courted controversy when he said the operations by the army in Jammu and Kashmir killed more civilians than terrorists.

"They (forces) take action against four terrorists and kill 20 civilians. Their action is more against civilians than terrorists. For instance, they killed 13 civilians in Pulwama and just one terrorist," Azad said in a TV interview.

Prasad continued, "Ghulam Nabi Azad insults Indian Army by saying that army killed more civilians than terrorists. This observation of Ghulam Nabi Azad is irresponsible, shameful and deeply regrettable."

Prasad questioned the Congress as to why it was standing with anti-nationals who wanted to break the country. Continuing his tirade against the grand old party, Prasad said, "What can we expect from today's leadership of the Congress, when their chairperson goes to Jawaharlal Nehru University chanting, 'We will break India into pieces' and 'Insha Allah, Insha Allah'. The Union Minister also compared the number of terrorists killed during the rule of Congress and the BJP. -- ANI
