Ishrat case: Cong, BJP intensify sparring
Escalating the war of words in the Ishrat Jahan case, the Congress on Sunday accused the BJP of spreading misinformation to “save the skin” of PM Narendra Modi and party chief Amit Shah, while the ruling party hit back demanding an apology from Sonia Gandhi and Rahul for their “sin of playing with nation’s security”.
“Simple truth is that this web of deceit and deception is being woven by the government and certain sections of media to save the skin of PM Modi and BJP chief Amit Shah,” said Mallikarjun Kharge, Anand Sharma and other senior Congress leaders.
Hitting back, BJP national secretary Shrikant Sharma said, “The Congress should stop speaking the language spoken by Pakistan. Congress leadership has committed the sin of playing with the nation’s security by protecting a terrorist like Ishrat Jahan, who wanted to eliminate Narendra Modi.”
