Congress giving Pakistan tools to defame India: BJP – Times of India

NEW DELHI: BJP on Saturday accused Congress of working to “weaken” India’s fight against Covid-19, and alleged that the opposition party “provided” tools to countries like Pakistan to defame India.
Citing the alleged remarks of former Madhya Pradesh CM Kamal Nath that India is not great but infamous following the spread of the infectious disease, BJP spokesperson Gaurav Bhatia sought to know Congress’ stand on his comments.
BJP also referred to reports in Pakistani media which mentioned “Indian variant” of Covid-19, a term mentioned in the “toolkit”, which has been attributed to Congress by BJP. “What Kamal Nath says is Congress’ ideology and does so on behalf of Sonia Gandhi. Defaming India has become your priority” Bhatia said at a virtual press conference.
He also cited comments of Rahul Gandhi and Shashi Tharoor to claim that Congress has been making “irresponsible” statements to weaken India’s fight against the pandemic.
Referring to a media report in Pakistan, Bhatia alleged that the term Indian variant used by it had “originated” at the Congress headquarters. “It has provided tools that are used by countries like Pakistan to target India,” he alleged.
MP CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan alleged Nath had lost his ‘mental state’. “He could no longer be called an Indian citizen after making defamatory remarks on the land he was born in,” Chouhan said.
