Congress leader and an eminent lawyer Kapil Sibal on Friday, during a press conference, attacked BJP and advocated Rahul Gandhi.
Earlier on Thursday, Rahul Gandhi made a statement accusing PM Modi of doing ‘Dalali’ on the dead bodies of Army Jawans and BJP for politicising the surgical strikes; the statement has sparked a major controversy between BJP and Congress.
In reaction to Rahul’s remarks, Amit Shah held a press conference and tried to justify the politicisation of surgical strikes.
Shah played the sentimental card and tried to divert the issue by focusing the matter of discussion on Rahul’s words and not on the issue Rahul raised, that is, the politicisation of surgical strikes.
The tussle started here, Congress did not hold back and lashed out on Amit Shah and BJP.
Sibal tauntingly targeted Shah and said that those who are charged with murder and have been to jail it is ironical on their part to comment on Rahul.
He then countered BJP’s move of setting up the posters and taking full credit for the surgical strikes. “They said that we wanted to take this surgical strike to people, which shows how they have politicised the matter,” he added.
Congress leader said that Pakistan is a patient and terrorism is like cancer cells in its body; India wants that patient to be healthy, so will have to give chemotherapy.
Kapil Sibal in his strongest response said that BJP gave birth to a terror group which is held responsible for the Uri Attack – Jaish-e-Mohammed.
“Who let out Masood Azhar; whose defence minister accompanied him to Pakistan? Why did you go to participate in a birthday party?” Sibal questioned BJP.
He also exhorted Prime Minister Narendra Modi to speak out and advise Shah that indulging in political bickering is harmful for democracy.
