BJP today accused Congress of using its senior leaders like Salman Khurshid and Digvijay Singh to convey its ‘mann ki baat’, a reference of Khurshid’s continued criticism of the government’s bringing up PoK and Balochistan issues against his party’s official stand.

“Congress should make it clear that if it does not agree with Khurshid’s statement, then what action is it taking against him? Congress does not use its official spokespersons to convey its ‘mann ki baat’ but senior leaders like Khurshid and Digvijay Singh,” its spokesperson Shahnawaz Hussain said.

He also defended Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar’s comparison of Pakistan with hell, saying it is a threat to the whole world and people there live under a security blanket “tighter than that in Tihar jail”.

At the press conference, he also broached up the inner power struggle within the Samajwadi Party.

Taking a dig at it, Hussain said while its president Mulayam Singh Yadav advises UP Chief Minister and his son Akhilesh Yadav to be like Mughal king Akbar, its inner party struggle is reminiscent of the rule of Aurangzeb and alleged that governance has collapsed in the state.

“Mulayam Singh Yadav may ask Akhilesh to be like Akbar but what is happening in UP is reminiscent more of the times of kings Shahjahan and Aurangzeb which were marked by war within the ruling family. The government is jolted by this internal power battle and there is no governance there,” Hussain said.
