The Congress is behaving “very irresponsibly” and weakening the morale of troopers by its statements at a time when the nation is within the midst of a stand-off with China in Ladakh, BJP president JP Nadda mentioned on Tuesday.
Addressing social gathering employees in Assam digitally from Delhi, Mr Nadda claimed that the BJP had all the time stood with the federal government on problems with nationwide safety when it was in opposition.
“It is sad that the opposition is only indulging in mud-slinging. It is very irresponsible. We were also in opposition for a very long time, but we stood by (Jawaharlal) Nehru in 1962, (Lal Bahadur) Shashtri in 1965 and Indira Gandhi in 1971.
“But now you see. Kargil or Ladakh — they’re solely busy in mud-slinging. The Congress is weakening the morale of the troopers by their statements,” he said.
Without naming anyone, Mr Nadda alleged that a Congress leader had secretly met the Chinese Ambassador to India during the Doklam stand-off between the two neighbours.
In a tweet earlier, Mr Nadda had accused Congress leader Rahul Gandhi of secretly going to the Chinese embassy during the Doklam stand-off.
“You ask for proof of surgical strikes, air strikes — what is that this? How can a rustic run like this? We want to offer a befitting reply to them (Congress) and our social gathering employees want to reveal them in entrance of the folks,” he added.
The BJP chief alleged that India was infamous on the world stage for corruption during the six decades after Independence.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi “completed the unfinished works of 60 years in simply six years. He has been capable of bridge the hole of 60 years in six years”, Mr Nadda said.
“There was coverage paralysis. Nobody knew who the PM was — was he working from 7 Race Course Road (Prime Minister”s official residence) or from someplace else,” Mr Nadda mentioned in an obvious reference Congress chief Sonia Gandhi.
