Amit Shah asks Rahul Gandhi to apologise for Hindu terror remark

ATMs ran out of cash after Prime Minister Narendra Modi on November 8, 2016 announced scrapping of old 500 and 1,000 rupee notes.

NEW DELHI:Stepping up its attack on Rahul Gandhi, BJP said it was taking up the challenge posed by Congress seeking proof of any statement on "saffron terror" by arguing that his thinking reflected an "anti-Hindu" mindset.

Indian Congress president Rahul Gandhi yesterday said that the approach of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi was a sharp contrast to former prime ministers Jawaharlal Nehru and the Bharatiya Janata Party's own Atal Behari Vajpayee.

He referred to a U.S. diplomatic cable and claimed Rahul had said that radicalised Hindu groups posed a greater threat to the country. "Rahul Gandhi will be invited to that programme and, if he wants, he can attend it", BJP's district unit president Uma Shankar Pandey said.

Questioning the PM's silence, he said, "Nirav Modi fled with Rs 30,000 crore and PM uttered not a single word".

"For several years Congress defamed the country around the world by using terms saffron terror and Hindu terror".

BJP District President Uma Shanker Pandey claimed the road was built under Pradhan Mantri Gramin Sadak Yojana, and not from Rahul Gandhi's MPLAD fund. For its appeasement politics, the Congress defamed Hindus.

In Sharm El Sheikh, providing ammunition to Pakistan and demeaning 26/11 and giving escape route to the LeT, that it was not a big threat, Mr Gandhi will have to give an answer, Dr Patra said, adding that they have given the proof of Congress' biggest leader.

But civic and Assembly polls were fought on different issues and could not be compared with general elections, he said.

Earlier on his arrival, the Congress chief was given a warm welcome by his party workers.

Miffed over the cancellation of the event, many Congress leaders said they would go ahead with the inauguration anyway. "The Gandhi family had also held power in the Centre for a long duration of time", he said.
