New Delhi: Taking a dig at Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) over its attack on actress-turned-politician Ramya, Congress on Tuesday said that if wanting better ties with Pakistan was sedition, then the first case should be lodged against Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
“The entire country wants a better relationship between India and Pakistan. Certain elements in BJP and RSS are unnecessarily trying to gain cheap publicity by polluting….”
“If wanting better relations with Pakistan is sedition, then the first case should be lodged against the Prime Minister who made an impromptu stopover for festivities with the Pakistan premier,” the party’s chief spokesman Randeep Surjewala told reporters here.
The second case should be filed against L K Advani for praising Mohammed Ali Jinnah, Surjewala added.
The Congress leader advised BJP to refrain from playing petty politics and focus in more serious issues that the country is facing.
The Congress’ reaction came hours after a complaint was registered against Ramya for insulting the sentiments of the Indian patriots by her remark that “Pakistan is not hell”.
