Bhopal | Union Minister and Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) MP Uma Bharti on Tuesday attacking the Congress party alleged that its leaders have joined hands with neighbouring Pakistan to defeat Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Speaking to reporters in Poll-bound Madhya Pradesh, Uma Bharti cited an example from the 1971 India Pakistan war. She said,”When India and Pakistan fought for Bangladesh, at that time being the leader of Opposition, Atal Bihari Vajpayee said in the Parliament that the Jana Sangh stands with (then Prime Minister) Indira Gandhi, Indian armed forces and the government because we have to defeat Pakistan.”
However, she alleged, “But when India carried surgical strike, Congress leaders called our Army Chief ‘gunda’. Congress leader went to Pakistan and said there that they have to defeat Prime Minister Narendra Modi. This means that they joined hands with Pakistan and are conspiring to defeat PM Modi.”
Earlier while addressing a rally in Chhattisgarh, Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu claimed that Prime Minister Narendra Modi was jealous of him as Imran Khan did not invite him to attend his swearing-in ceremony as Pakistan’s Prime Minister.
