BJP slams Congress for raking up murder case against Amit Shah

The law minister claimed to have definite knowledge about unease in the Congress party over Rahul Gandhi’s “khoon ki dalali” remark at the conclusion of his Kisan Yatra, but said the party was still going all out to defend him.

Hours after the Congress attacked BJP chief Amit Shah by raking up a murder case in which he was subsequently acquitted, Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad came down heavily on the main opposition party, saying that while there was not even a chargesheet against Shah, both the Congress president and vice-president were out on bail in a cheating case.

“The language used in the Congress press conference today is shameful, regrettable and venomous. It is sheer arrogance to call our national president a criminal on the basis of a prejudiced case that was filed against him. The CBI court said there was a conspiracy. As I used to say when I was party spokesman during our days in the opposition, the more people like Sibal and Digvijaya Singh speak, the better it is for us. They will bring Congress down from 44 to 24 but while we are at it, Sibal should also give his views on the president and vice-president of the Congress, both of whom are out on bail in a cheating case,” Prasad said.

He claimed to have definite knowledge about unease in the Congress party over Rahul Gandhi’s “khoon ki dalali” remark at the conclusion of his Kisan Yatra, but said the party was still going all out to defend him.

“In the Congress, Rahul bhakti overshadows rashtrabhakti, saving him is more important than saving the country… We tried to carry everybody along after the surgical strikes… yet they made these allegations today. Should all boundaries of courtesy be breached in the name of political rivalry?” Prasad asked.

    It is easy to predict unrest, violence,and border skirmishes when Modi is PM. It occurs daily. He is unfit to be the chowkidar of the nation. China has reached Uttarakhand. Now, soon it will be at the Himcahal borders. He messed up Kashmir where tourists had started to go gain. His followers are still in a daze hearing his oratory and dress sense

    Sibal himself shall be supercharged for giving govt fund to anti-nationals as a minister by taking oath for protecting national interest. He also be prosecuted to give a huge benefit to Reliance for tune of approx some crores of rupees while he was telecom minister. He is lair, infamously saying Zero loss in Telecom scam.
