New Delhi, Nov. 21 (ANI): Congress leaders today lashed out at Punjab Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal for calling their party ‘anti-national’, saying that they did not need lessons on nationalism from the Akali Dal.
“CM Badal still takes pride in having burnt the Constitution during the Khalistan movement, don’t need nationalism lessons from Akalis,” said former Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh.
Former union minister Salman Khurshid said that Badal has every right to disagree with the Congress, but calling them ‘anti-national’ was not right.
“Can’t anyone have different view? Can’t we have different opinion? The moment you oppose them they say you are anti-national. This is narrow mindedness. Rahul Gandhi likes Punjab a lot,” Khurshid told ANI.
Meanwhile, Congress leader P.L. Punia said that party had never indulged in any anti-national activity in its long history.
“What Sukhbir Badal has said is absurd. Rahul Gandhi has nevfer done anything to disrupt communal peace. In the long history of Congress, there has never been any instance where we have tried to divide society on communal lines,” he said.
Accusing the Congress Party of being an ‘anti-national’ organisation, Sukhbir Singh Badal today said that the grand old party is creating an alliance with the terrorist organizations, having links with Pakistan’s ISI, just for the sake of political gains.
