New Delhi: Alleging that the Congress is trying to exonerate Pakistan, the BJP on Thursday hit out the Sonia Gandhi-led party saying that its stand on Kashmir was guided by political opportunism.

“Congress has once again displayed its insensitivity on J&K issue, its own leaders are not in consonance. Their statements and contradictions smell of political opportunism,” said senior BJP leader and union minister Venkaiah Naidu.

“What's consistent about Congress party's policy on Pakistan and Jammu and Kashmir is inconsistency. It appears that Congress leaders are not guided by national interest but political opportunism,” he said.

“Why is Congress trying to exonerate Pakistan? I appeal them to be sensitive, realistic, and act and speak accordingly,” Naidu added.
