BJP protests anti-Modi remarks by German parliament team
New Delhi: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Sunday demanded an apology from Germany over the provocative remarks made by a German parliamentary delegation about Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi during a recent visit to the state.
BJP leader Vijay Jolly, also the joint convenor of the party`s foreign cell, termed the remarks a "foreign intervention in India`s internal affairs".
"Describing Modi as a `dictator` is intolerable. Tarnishing the image of a democratically elected chief minister by visiting German officials is unacceptable. This is undiplomatic and unfair to the Indian cause," Jolly said.
"The single-day visit to Ahmedabad city, meeting Gujarat Congress leaders Shakti Singh Gohil and former MP Madhusudan Mistry and commenting that `Christian conversion activity was becoming difficult under the new religious freedom law enacted by Gujarat government` is an alarming, mischievous act and comment by the visiting German MPs," Jolly added.
The party announced it is organising a protest outside the German embassy in New Delhi Monday.
