BJP attacks Congress for the Gupkar Alliance and targets Rahul Gandhi | India News


NEW DELHI: On Monday, the BJP attacked its rival parties in Jammu and Kashmir, saying that its position on a number of issues, including the demand to restore Article 370, is the same as that of countries like Pakistan.
While targeting Congress for his ties to the National Conference and the People’s Democratic Party, BJP spokesman Sambit Patra also criticized its leader Rahul Gandhi for comments from people like former US President Barack Obama to RJD leader Shivanand Tiwari and the Congress. «Kapil Sibal.
When Obama got to know him (Rahul) in four or five days, it is obvious that those who interact with him almost daily would also have realized what he is, Patra told reporters.
Congressional leaders praised him as they carried a load of “100 tons of stone” on their chest, and now they feel suffocated, he said.
“The BJP had been saying it for a long time. Now a friend of Congress like Shivanand Tiwari is saying that he is a non-serving picnic president,” Patra said.
Tiwari had questioned the congressional campaign on Sunday and also criticized Gandhi for not spending much time campaigning in the state.
Sibal is part of a group of leaders in Congress who have demanded a reform of the party’s organization.
Targeting the union of the Jammu and Kashmir parties, known as the ‘Gupkar Alliance’, the BJP spokesperson described it as “unholy”, saying that it aims to oppose the implementation of the laws duly passed by the Indian Parliament.
“This Gupkar Alliance wants exactly what Pakistan and the anti-India countries want. Pakistan has gone to all forums and has spoken out against the removal of Article 370. The Gupkar Alliance says the same thing,” said Patra.
The BJP would like to ask Congress Speaker Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi if they support comments made by Gupkar Alliance leaders, it said, noting that North Carolina President Farooq Abdullah had spoken about China’s support for the Article 370, while Mehbooba Mufti of the PDP had done so. He said that he would not raise the Indian flag if the Kashmir flag is not restored.
He said that these parties are nervous because the local polls in the union territory are aimed at bringing development to the grassroots.
