Endorse PC’s 370 stand, Shah dares Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi | India News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: BJP on Saturday raised its ante over Congress leader P Chidambaram’s demand for restoration of Article 370, with home minister Amit Shah challenging Congress president Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi to publicly endorse their colleague’s stand.
“ Let Sonia ji as Cong president publicly support Shri Chidambaram who has opposed the change in the status of Article 370 even in Parliament,” Shah said in a TV interview.
His dare to Cong came amid BJP leaders escalating attack on the opposition party over the latter’s stand for revival of special status for J&K.
“Congress leaders P Chidambaram and Digvijay Singh have said they will restore Article 370 once Congress returns to power. Will the Congress leaders mention their pledge in the manifesto for Bihar polls?” Union minister Prakash Javadekar asked.”
He said Congress has become a “narrow-minded” party and is singing to the tunes of a handful of outlaws active in the Kashmir valley.
“Even Rahul Gandhi makes no bones about his fondness for countries like China and Pakistan. His love for the two countries is the actual face of Congress,” Javadekar said.
Another senior party member Ram Madhav took to Twitter, saying expectations about return of Article 370 is a farce. “Gupkar 2 is just a facade. Every Kashmiri knows that special status is not going to return and they are being taken for a ride… But a good gain for the Modi government is that 2019 has replaced 1953. Welcome to realpolitik,” he tweeted.
Congress had on Friday called for restoration of Article 370, inviting a sharp response from BJP which said the opposition party is once again resorting to “divisive politics” on the eve of Bihar polls.
