Home Minister Amit Shah termed it an “unholy global gathbandhan (alliance) against India’s national interests” that wanted “foreign forces to intervene in J&K”. He asked Congress leaders Rahul Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi to respond whether they supported the “moves of Gupkar gang”. “The Gupkar gang is going global! They want foreign forces to intervene in Jammu and Kashmir. It also insults India’s Tricolour. Do Sonia Ji and Rahul Ji support such moves of the Gupkar gang? They should make their stand crystal clear to the people of India,” he tweeted.
“The Congress and the Gupkar gang want to take J&K back to the era of terror and turmoil. They want to take away rights of Dalits, women and tribals that we have ensured by removing Article 370,” Shah added. — TNS
