Congress Manifesto drafted to please separatists, Jihadis : BJP

CHANDIGARH: Commenting on the Lok Sabha elections Manifesto released by Congress, the Bharatiya Janata Party today said it has been drafted to please separatists and Jihadis in a bid to win the polls by a frustrated Rahul Gandhi who was now ready to sacrifice the unity and integrity of the country for attaining power.

BJP national secretary Tarun Chugh said the Congress and its allies, in their bid to oppose Prime Minister Narendra Modi, were trying to echo the sentiments of Pakistan and the sleeper cells of separatists and terrorists.

“It has come as a surprise to every nationalist in the country that Congress, if it comes to power, has proposed to do away with section 124 of the IPC which actually has a provision for punishment for anti-national and seditious activities,” Chugh said.

He said the Congress by promising to abolish section 124 of the IPC was not hesitating to commit a sin on the directions of ‘Tukre Tukre Gang.’

The BJP leader asked Rahul to clear his stand on National Conference leader Farooq Abdullah and PDP leader Mehbooba Mufti’s demand regarding a separate Prime Minister for Jammu and Kashmir.

Questioning the silence of Congress on the above issue, Chugh said it was now clear that Congress’ hand was meant to protect the divisive forces who want to disintegrate the country.

Chugh said the BJP won’t allow any compromise with the unity and integrity of the country.  “The BJP will instead expose Rahul and Congress’ lust of power and defeat their designs to disturb the peace and stability of the country,” he said.
