Shivpuri, MP, Oct 9 : Taking a swipe at Congress President Rahul Gandhi for insisting that his party would come to power in Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) President Amit Shah today said that he could build castles in air but should refrain from speaking as a 'Sheikh Chilli.'
“Pakistan used to conduct terrorist strikes time and again against India during earlier Congress and United Progressive Alliance regimes. It repeated the misdeed again after the Modi dispensation came to power, but the Prime Minister responded by ordering a surgical strike,” said Mr Shah while addressing a 'karyakarta sammelan' here.
“Nonetheless, Mr Gandhi described it as a violation of human rights. He was supported by the Samajwadi Party, the Trinamool Congress, communists and the People's Democratic Party. All this is vote bank politics. Why no one spoke of human rights when terrorists struck our country,” he said.
Launching a scathing attack on the Congress, Mr Shah said that an industrialist (State Congress President Kamal Nath), a 'raja (former chief minister Digvijaya Singh)' and a 'maharaja (Congress MP Jyotiraditya Scindia)' are seeking to bring the Congress to power while the fact is that 'Shriman Bantadhar (Mr Singh)' had left the state 'Bimaru'.
“On the other hand, Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan helped the state come out of 'Bimaru' tag,” he said.(UNI)
