Seoni: Targetting the Congress over
the Batla House controversy, senior VHP leader Pravin Togadia
has accused the party of only shedding tears for extremists,
but not for nationalist forces.
"Union Law Minister Salman Khurshid recently said that
on seeing the Batla House encounter images, Congress president
Sonia Gandhi had cried. But the same did not happen, when a
large number of people from the majority community were
massacred in Kashmir and over 50 VHP workers were burnt alive
in Godhra," Togadia said.
"Congress sheds tears only for the extremists and not
for the nationalist forces," he added.
He was speaking at a religious meet organised at the
Mission Higher Secondary School ground last night.
Togadia alleged that the political leaders were using
the minority community for the vote bank politics.
VHP is opposed to the 4.5 per cent reservation for the
minorities, out of the 27 per cent OBC quota, Togadia said.
He asked the Centre to cancel the reservation as well as
the Sachar Committee recommendations.
