DELHI: The BJP on Sunday accused the Congress of being ‘insecure’ and obstructing the GST Bill.
BJP leader and Union Minister Venkaiah Naidu said that it was not the minorities who were insecure but it was the Congress party which was insecure.
“That is why you (Congress) are obstructing everything, you don’t want GST,” Naidu said.
He also said, “The Congress was always soft on terrorists and hard on nationalists.”
Meanwhile, taking on Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the JNU row, Congress today alleged that he was “responsible” for the events as he had failed to rein-in his party members who have been issuing inflammatory and divisive statements since BJP government came to power.
Terming the action against JNU students as “one-sided”, Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha Ghulam Nabi Azad said the Prime Minister cannot “pick and choose” and questioned why he did not firmly deal with divisive elements within BJP.
“During an all-party meet, I told the Prime Minister that whatever is happening in JNU or has happened in Hyderabad, who is responsible for that,” he said.
“I said, in front of him, that Honourable Prime Minister if you do not take offence, it is you and your government that are responsible for that,” the Congress general secretary told reporters.
Azad said he told the Prime Minister that since the BJP came to power, ministers, party functionaries, MPs and even Governors were issuing statements which lead to tension between Muslims and Hindus.
