Calling for ‘Azadi’(freedom) from the anti-national elements, Minister of State in Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) Jitendra Singh said that they are ‘misguided thinkers’.
Addressing a seminar organised by Sindhi and Migrant Kashmiri Pandits, he said that we need ‘Azadi’ from the people having anti-national thoughts.
Singh added that there are many forces working against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and have hatched conspiracy to defame him.
Taking a dig at people who criticize the PM, he said that they should look at themselves before raising any issue.
Attacking Congress party, Singh said:
“Centre is being blamed for inflation, poverty and for other matters across the country but why these issues were not raised when you (Congress) ruled the country for around six decades.”
Commenting on the remarks of Congress leader, Ghulum Nabi Azad, he said that Congress is losing ground due to which they are making such remarks against the rightwing Hindu organisations like RSS.
“It a nationalist organisation and not a terrorist organisation (ISIS),” he added.
On March 12, Azad was quoted as saying:
“We oppose organizations like ISIS, the way we oppose the RSS. If those among us in Islam also do wrong things, they are in no way less than the RSS.”
His remarks created political stir and BJP leaders like Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi warned that the party is considering legal action against him. However, Azad waved a CD around in Parliament today and said that his remarks were taken out of context and lost in translation.
