BJP: Congress Leaders Seem To Be Trying To Protect Terrorists :- On Wednesday, BJP hit back at the Congress in the wake of encounter of 8 SIMI terrorists by MP police, saying the latter was ostensibly seeking to protect the terrorists.
During a press conference in Vijayawada on Wednesday, BJP National Secretary – Siddharth Nath Singh alleged that they (SIMI terrorists) must have thought the Congress was a safer place than the jail (and hence escaped). By speaking in support of the terrorists, Congress leaders seem to be trying to protect them.
He was countering the attack of Congress general secretary Digvijaya Singh on BJP in the wake of the alleged encounter that took place in Bhopal on 31st October 2016.
Siddharth further said that it is unfortunate that the Congress is seeking to link terrorism with religion. The Congress leaders who are expressing sympathy towards the slain terrorists…why are they not talking about the police constable who was killed in the encounter.
The BJP leader, referring to Digvijaya’s poser why only Muslims escaped from the prison, remarked that they might have felt the Congress to be a safer place for them.
Siddharth added that BJP will organise a rally at Tadepalligudem in West Godavari district on 26 th November 2016 to highlight the issue of farmers in the state. The rally will be addressed by the BJP chief Amit Shah.
