New Delhi: Following the revelations by former RAW chief AS Dulat, the Congress, Friday, accused the BJP of wearing a 'false mask of nationalism'.
Addressing a press conference here, Congress spokesperson Ajoy Kumar said, “Certain disturbing facts have come in the open...one is that the BJP government (in 1999) was in active communication with Syed Salahuddin, head of Hizbul Mujahideen based in Pakistan, and that the BJP government got his son admitted to a medical college(sic).”
“This shows there pseudo nationalism. People like Salahuddin sit in Pakistan and spread hatred against the country...mask of nationalism that BJP wears is totally false,” he said.
Kumar also targeted the BJP over the Kandahar expose by Dulat.
“Dulakh explains how the crisis management group of the government failed miserably, allowing the plane to leave Amritsar. Because the plane was allowed to leave Amritsar, three most wanted terrorists were released in Kandaha,” he said, adding, “Maulana Masood Azhar continues to spread hatred against India and thousands of Kashmiris have lost their lives.”
