New Delhi: Hitting back at Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi over his jibe at Prime Minister Modi, the BJP said on Saturday that its government had succeeded in isolating Pakistan over terrorism, while the UPA treated it as a victim state and let it off lightly. 

Minutes after Gandhi termed the release of JuD chief Hafiz Saeed’s release a failure of PM Modi’s “hugplomacy”, the BJP hit back by calling the Congress leader a “known sympathiser of LeT”, and asking if he had “congratulated” the mastermind of 26/11 Mumbai attacks yet.

 

“Rahul Baba, aadatein nahin badalti hain (Rahul Baba, habits don’t change). For once, stand with the country & not with terrorists as is your habit. You are a known sympathiser of LeT. WikiLeaks & Ishrat Jahan case cover-up exposed your links. BTW, have you congratulated your ‘Hafiz Saheb’ on his release yet? @officeofrg,” tweeted G.V.L. Narasimha Rap, BJP’s national spokesperson. 

“Congress ka haath, aatankivadiyon ke saath” is a more appropriate slogan for the Opposition party,” he added.

 

The Congress condemned the BJP over its “shameful” barb, with party leader Anand Sharma saying that the BJP leaders “in their arrogance” have lost their mental balance as they targeted Gandhi. He said the BJP needs to be reminded that Gandhi belongs to a family which made sacrifices for the unity and integrity of the country and accused the BJP of taking political discourse to a new low. “It is shameful. It deserves to be condemned. The BJP leaders have lost their mental balance in arrogance. Gandhi is the leader of Congress.”
