Smriti Irani lambasts Congress for “anti-national policies”    

 Hoshiarpur (Punjab), ( Union Minister of Women and Child Development Smriti Irani on Wednesday rapped Congress for what she described as its “sympathy for Pakistan” and pursuit of “anti-national policies”. Addressing an election rally at a private resort in Dagham village of Punjab’s Hoshiarpur district in support of the BJP candidate from Shri Anandpur Sahib Lok Sabha constituency, Dr. Subhash Sharma, Irani condemned the Congress and its leaders for what she described as their “sympathy for Pakistan”.
Supporting her claims, Irani said, “A Congress leader claims that Pakistani terrorists were not responsible for killing our brave policemen. Their Chief Minister asks for proof of surgical strikes even after five years. Another senior leader says that India should be cautious as Pakistan has nuclear bombs. Can anyone accept these statements made by Congress leaders during the election campaign?”
Criticising Rahul Gandhi, Irani expressed her shame that he gave a ticket to the alleged leader of the “Tukde Tukde Gang,” Kanhaiya Kumar, from North East Delhi (Lok Sabha constituency). Claiming that Congress divided Punjab in 1966, Irani claimed that now Congress supports “anti-national elements” and is intent on dividing the country. “Congress wants to see a repetition of the partition and wants our mothers, sisters, and daughters to
experience the same trauma again. This is highly condemnable,” she lamented.
Ms Irani also criticised the AAP Government over the liquor scam, accusing Kejriwal and his colleagues of being deeply involved in corruption. She raised the issue of the attack on AAP’s Rajya Sabha MP Swati Maliwal, terming it as a “blot” on the face of the AAP government, particularly the Chief Minister of Delhi. (UNI)
