BJP President Amit Shah on Monday, questioned the logic behind Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi’s stand on the JNU row and sought that he make a public apology for the same.
Alleging that national interest had no place in Gandhi’s mind, Amit Shah asked if the congress party had joined forces with the separatists of the country and if were hoping for another partition.
“I want to ask Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi that if this is not anti-national then what is. I want to ask Congress and Rahul Gandhi if they support sedition in the name of freedom of expression,” Shah asked.
“If Congress wants to support this in name of freedom of speech, want to ask them what is more big proof against anti-nationals?” Shah said.
“An attempt was made to defame a leading university in the national capital by turning it into a centre which encourages terrorism and separatism. I want to ask Rahul Gandhi if it would be in national interest had the central government kept quiet?
“Are you not encouraging traitors by protesting in support of these anti-nationals?”, Shah wondered.
Claiming that the Modi government had triumphed in “controlling anti-national sentiments” even in Kashmir, Shah complained that instead of being a responsible opposition, Congress was fuelling the “shameful incident” at JNU.
I seek answers from Congress chief Sonia Gandhi and vice president Rahul Gandhi to my questions on behalf of 125 crore countrymen and also demand that Rahul Gandhi apologise to the country for his action,” Shah wrote.
