AAP said it will back the government when there is an attack on India’s national security. It also chastised Pakistan FM for his insulting remarks about Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
They might represent the two distinct aspects of the political spectrum in the country but Pakistan’s foreign minister’s offensive comments against Prime minister Narendra Modi appeared to have bridged the political distance between Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
AAP, which is giving the BJP a tough fight in New Delhi, came out all guns blazing in defence of PM Modi on Friday following Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari’s highly disparaging remarks at the United Nations.
Reacting to Bhutto-Zardari calling PM Modi the butcher of Gujarat, AAP MP Sanjay Singh said that Pakistan has no right to comment on Indian leaders. “Pakistan has no standing to comment on any of our leaders,” the Rajya Sabha MP told The New Indian.
Calling Pakistan India’s traditional enemy, Singh said that India should give a suitable reply to its neighbour for such highly insulting comments on the Prime minister.
“Pakistan is our traditional enemy. We should give them suitable replies at every stage. We should expose Pakistan on every stage available,” Singh said.
Singh also said that opposition parties will always back the government when it comes to attacks on national security.
“The government of India must take strict action when it comes to national security. No one is going to go against him (PM Modi),” Singh said.
In a highly offensive remark, Pak foreign minister Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari called PM Modi ‘the butcher of Gujarat’ at the United Nations Security Council.
Reacting to the Indian minister of external affairs, S Jaishankar’s attack on Pakistan as a country that sheltered dreaded terrorists, including Osama Bin Laden, Bhutto-Zardari said, “I want to tell India that Osama bin Laden is dead, but the butcher of Gujarat lives, and he is the Prime Minister of India.”
“He (PM Modi) was banned from entering this country until he became the Prime Minister. This is the Prime Minister of the RSS and the Foreign Minister of the RSS. What is the RSS? The RSS takes inspiration from Hitler’s ‘SS’,” the Pak minister added.
