NEW DELHI, May 6: The BJP on Monday highlighted a series of statements made by INDIA bloc leaders that, it said, were against the nation’s interest, as the ruling party accused the opposition of echoing the voice of Pakistan and asked people to be wary of such “traitors”.

BJP spokesperson Sudhanshu Trivedi cited Maharashtra Congress leader Vijay Wadettiwar’s allegation that an RSS-affiliated police officer and not terrorist Ajmal Kasab killed the then anti-terrorism squad chief Hemant Karkare and former Punjab chief minister Charanjit Singh Channi’s claim that the attack on IAF personnel in Jammu and Kashmir was a poll stunt to slam the party.

He cited five other instances, including Pakistani leader Chaudhry Fawad Hussain’s criticism of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and praise of Rahul Gandhi, and Farooq Abdullah’s reference to Pakistan having nuclear weapons, to allege that these INDIA bloc leaders are echoing the neighbouring country’s stand.

What the National Conference leader has said is very “astounding, revealing and shocking” as so far only a few Pakistani leaders considered reckless or radicalised religious leaders have made such comments, he claimed.

Replying to a question related to Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir, the former J-K chief minister had said that Pakistan is not wearing bangles and has nuclear weapons. Such remarks are also an insult to women, the BJP leader said.

Noting that Congress leader Shashi Tharoor has written a column in a Bangladeshi newspaper slamming Modi while analysing the ongoing Lok Sabha elections, Rajya Sabha MP Trivedi said while elections are being held in India he is building public opinion in another country.

The Congress leader has also referred to the Valley as India-administered-Kashmir, he alleged.

Tharoor, however, later clarified saying he does not agree with that usage and has never used such a term in any of his writings or statements anywhere, ever.

“It has been interpolated by the editors of the newspaper that my syndicated column appeared in. I disavow such language unequivocally, but have no control over what foreign newspaper editors do,” he said in a post on X.

Attacking opposition leaders, Trivedi said one INDIA bloc leader is giving “cover fire” to Pakistan on the Mumbai terror attack, another is speaking about its nuclear weapon while somebody is describing the martyrdom of a solider as a poll stunt.

Modi had said that the Congress manifesto carried Muslim League’s imprints, he noted, adding that every word spoken by its leaders echoed Pakistan’s stand. The Left parties want the country’s nuclear stockpiles removed, he said.

All these developments are not merely a coincidence but a deliberate and dangerous experiment, Trivedi said.

“In whose hands these leaders are playing,” he asked, telling people to be wary of “traitors” hiding within the country.

Various kinds of powers outside are attempting to halt the rise of a proud and confident India, he said.

At the press conference, the BJP leader also took a swipe at Rahul Gandhi over the recovery of a huge amount of cash from the house of a domestic help allegedly linked to the secretary of Jharkhand minister and Congress leader Alamgir Alam.

He said Gandhi speaks about doing an economic survey and dividing the country’s wealth and the Enforcement Directorate’s raid has shown the way assets are being divided in Jharkhand when so much of money, between Rs 20 crore and 30 crore, is with the help of a minister’s PA.

After looking at so much amount of money, nothing is left to explain, he added. (PTI)
