New Delhi, Jan 24 (): Waiting for the next parliament session, the BJP on Thursday said that it will protest against Union Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde’s statement in the coming session who said that RSS-BJP was promoting “Hindu terrorism”.
While launching a nationwide demonstration against Shinde’s statement today, Senior BJP leader Venkaiah Naidu who courted arrest along with a large number of party workers claimed that the fight was not any one individual’s but the entire nations.
Naidu, who is in-charge of the party in Maharashtra, told reporters that the BJP has decided to corner the Congress in parliament in the upcoming session. The Congress party has been taking advantages by misusing the CBI, Income Tax department and the office of the Governors, claimed Naidu.
It is impossible for Shinde to make such comments without the knowledge of Congress President Sonia Gandhi and the Prime Minister, added Naidu who said that it is again the old tactics used by the party to divert attention of the people from major problems of the country.
Both Sonia Gandhi and Manmohan Singh are maintaining silence on the issue without seeking a clarification, said Mr Naidu who grew suspicious whether the Congress President and the Prime Minister are playing a part in Shinde’s statement, and added the BJP leader.
Slamming Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde for his Hindu terror remarks, BSP chief Mayawati said that Shinde who made such remarks must prove before the court. Shinde’s remarks has angered the Hindus, asserted Mayawati stressing that statements which are not based on facts and hurt sentiments should be avoided. Nobody has the right to play with the sentiments of any religion said BSP chief Mayawati.
Meanwhile the BJP which launched a nationwide agitation today against Shinde’s statements said that the RSS has initiated legal proceedings against the Home Minister who was supported by the entire congress party including Foreign Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid and the Home Secretary.
