Shah Accuses Rahul Gandhi of Shallow Politics
Amit Shah also attacked the opposition leader Rahul Gandhi and accused him of playing shallow politics at the cost of national security. He also alleged that the Congress party needs to introspect why Pakistan and China were using the hashtags coined by the Congress leader. Shah is referring to a hashtag #surrendermodi which was initiated by Rahul Gandhi in a tweet where he claimed to know the ‘expanse of territory occupied by the Chinese’. He said,
“Parliament will convene, come there, we will have a one-to-one discussion. From 1962 till now, let’s discuss, no one is afraid of discussions. But when jawans are struggling at the border and government has taken a stand, is taking firm action, then to raise issues that make Pakistan and China happy is not done.”
In the interview, the Union Home Minister also spoke about the various measures both central and the state government of Delhi has taken to control the spread of the novel coronavirus disease in the national capital region.
