New Delhi: BJP leader Sambit Patra on Wednesday said that it has become a habit of the Congress and other opposition parties, to abuse Hindus in the name of protest against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA).
“We are observing how the environment is being vitiated by the opposition parties in the name of protests against CAA and NPR. To protest is a democratic right but taking the cover of protests, Congress and other opposition parties are abusing Hindus,” Patra said.
Sambit Patra, who is also a spokesperson of the party, was speaking to reporters at a press conference in the BJP office. He also gave statements of opposition leaders to support his statements.
Patra said, ” Two days back former Maharashtra CM and Congress leader Ashok Chavan said that a coalition government was formed in Maharashtra with Shiv Sena as Msulims had said that BJP is their biggest enemy. This means that Congress party forms the government only by asking Muslims but not consulting Hindus,” he said.
“NCP leader Jitendra Awhad said a few days back that Muslims can say where their ancestors’ graves are but Hindus cannot say where their ancestors’ last rites took place. AIMIM leader Akbaruddin Owaisi also claimed that Muslims ruled the country for 800 years and constructed many monuments and questioned what is it that the Hindus have done,” he added.
Patra upheld the value of Hindus and said, ” I will say what the Hindus have done. The Hindus have made this country tolerant and a great civilisation.”
