Patna/New Delhi: Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Monday faced renewed calls from opposition parties to give proof for his claim that a flashpoint event at JNU campus received support from LeT founder Hafiz Saeed even as Delhi police said it has so far found “no evidence” in this regard.
Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar urged Rajnath Singh to show evidence to back up his claim that Saeed, the founder of the Pakistan-based outfit Lashkar-e- Taiba(LeT), supported the event at the campus in Delhi to protest the hanging of Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru on his third death anniversary on February 9.
Congress again hit out at Rajnath Singh over his claim, accusing him of “communalising” the issue and said prime minister Narendra Modi should ask his Pakistani counterpart to arrest the Lashkar chief for attacks in India.
“Rajnath communalising#JNUATROCITY at PULPIT of Pulp Patriotism. Tell PM’s Biryani friend Nawaz Sharief Arrest Hafiz Seed for terror attacks,” senior Congress Leader Manish Tewari said in a tweet.
