Even today, any statement given by Rahul Gandhi is lauded in Pakistan, said Union Home Minister Amit Shah.
Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Sunday launched a scathing attack on Congress leader Rahul Gandhi for questioning the move to abrogate Article 370, saying Congress should be ashamed of helping Pakistan.
Addressing a gathering in Silvassa in Dadra & Nagar Haveli, the Home Minister said that his rivals must rise above their parties and back Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led central government over the issue.
“Article 370 and Article 35A were roadblocks in the complete integration of Jammu and Kashmir with India. The mandate given by the people of the country made Prime Minister Modi abrogate the same in the first session of Parliament itself,” he said.
“It was the last nail in the coffin of terrorism. All citizens, barring a few, have supported this move by the government,” he said.
“The Congress opposed the move to abrogate Article 370. Even today, any statement given by Rahul Gandhi is lauded in Pakistan. His statement is even included in Pakistan’s plea. The Congress should be ashamed that their statements are being used against India,” he said.
