Munger/Begusarai/Ujiyarpur (Bihar): BJP president Amit Shah on Wednesday tore into the Rahul Gandhil ed Congress and its allies accusing them of being soft on terror and of tacitly approving Kashmirs secession from India.

Mr Shah also lambasted the Congress for coming up with promises of scrapping the Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA) and abolition of sedition law in its poll manifesto and declared that such moves would be stoutly opposed by the BJP even if it was no longer in power.

 

The BJP chief was on a whirlwind election tour of Bihar where he spoke at three back-to-back rallies at Munger, Begusarai and Ujiyarpur in as many Lok Sabha seats.

“For the past fortnight, I have been challenging the Congress to come clean on the issue. But Gandhi is silent and so is his allies  like Lalu and Rabri Devi (RJD leaders, allies of the Congress in Bihar)”, Shah said at his rally in Ujiyarpur.

“Can any country have more than one Prime Minister. The Congress and its allies want Kashmir to secede from India. It is for the voters to decide whether it is acceptable,” Mr Shah alleged referring to former J-K Chief Minister Omar Abdullahs controversial statement favoring restoration of the office of Wazir-e-Azam.

“Rahul Gandhi will not be able to do as he pleases in his lifetime. We will ensure that after him if another Gandhi rises to power, he  too does not play with national interests, Mr Shah said.
