Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad on Saturday accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government of creating a ‘terror-like’ situation in the country. Speaking to ANI, Azad said that the time when Modi came into power, an environment of terror and threat started pulping up and Amit Shah joined it to make the intention more visible across the country.
Further strengthening up his ante against the newly formed government in Uttar Pradesh, Azad said, it was a well-calculated strategy of the BJP to appoint UP chief minister. The objective is to bring all those in power who are anti-Muslims and anti-minorities.
Even last month during a Rajya Sabha session, Azad had accused the Union government of misusing the powers of Governor for their own convenience. Azad also demanded that the current state governments in Manipur and Goa must be sacked and Congress MLAs should be sworn in.
