In a controversial statement given by the Congress Leader, Shashi Tharoor, in an event in Thiruvananthapuram, has created a sense of outrage among Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leadership. Shashi Tharoor who is currently interrogated in wife, Sunanda Pushkar’s death case, was present in Thiruvananthapuram when he made this remark on BJP. He said, “If they (BJP) win a repeat in the Lok Sabha, our democratic constitution as we understand it will not survive as they will have all the elements they need to tear apart the constitution of India and write a new one,” Tharoor not just stopped here but went ahead and claimed that if BJP comes in power again in 2019, India will most likely become ‘Hindu Pakistan’.
“That new one will be the one which will enshrine principles of Hindu Rashtra, that will remove equality for minorities, that’ll create a Hindu Pakistan and that isn’t what Mahatma Gandhi, Nehru, Sardar Patel, Maulana Azad and great heroes of freedom struggle fought for,” added Tharoor.

The statement was bound to get strong criticism from BJP and the same happened when BJP asked not just Tharoor but Congress party president, Rahul Gandhi, to apologize for disrespecting and demeaning the nation and Hindus of India. “Rahul Gandhi must apologize for what Shashi Tharoor said. Congress was responsible for creation of Pakistan because of its ambitions yet again it has gone ahead to demean India and defame Hindus of India,” said raged Sambit Patra, BJP spokesperson to ANI.

Shameless @INCIndia doesn’t lose any opportunity to demean India & defame the Hindus! From ‘Hindu Terrorists’ to ‘Hindu Pakistan’ the Pak appeasing policies of Cong are unparalleled,” tweeted Sambit Patra.

It is to be noted that BJP and Congress party are taking on each other in every opportunity that they get anywhere. This is obvious with 2019 General Election nearing day by day. In a rally addressing farmers in Congress ruled Punjab, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday, launched a scathing attack on Congress Party. In a comment made, PM Modi alleged that Congress party only concerned about ‘one family’ and made only fake promises to the nation for the past 70 years. “In the last 70 years, the party on which our farmers placed their faith did not recognize their hard work. Only promises were made to farmers. They made a lot of announcements about welfare in those years, but they were only worried about the welfare of one family. Farmers were made a vote bank,” criticized PM Modi, quoted ANI. He had decided to address a rally of farmers after the government raised the MSP (Minimum Support Price).
