Sack Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde for insulting terror remarks, says BJP


New Delhi: The opposition BJP today demanded that Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde be sacked for alleging that the BJP and its ideological parent, the RSS, promote terrorism at their camps. The Prime Minister and Congress president Sonia Gandhi must apologise for the insult, BJP spokesperson Ravi Shankar Prasad said. “The BJP will not tolerate this repeated insult of Hindu and saffron traditions of India,” said Mr Prasad. “He is a light-weight Home Minister making lightweight remarks, but since he spoke in the Prime Minister’s presence, it has to be taken seriously,” the spokesperson said, adding that since Mr Shinde is the Leader of the House, his comments could seriously damage the government’s fragile relationship with the opposition in Parliament, which leads frequently to a complete gridlock. But Parliamentary Affairs Minister Kamal Nath was unmoved. “The Congress fully backs Shinde… his statement is a fact,” Mr Nath said, accusing the BJP of trying to divert attention from its “internal problems.”
