NEW DELHI: India’s ruling party BJP called for an apology from the country’s main opposition group for “helping Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan in maligning India’s image” at his United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) speech on Friday.
Addressing the UN general assembly, Imran Khan quoted a former Congress minister to criticize the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS).
“The previous Congress home minister gave a statement that in RSS camps, terrorists are being trained,” Khan said.
According to India Today, BJP national spokesperson Sambit Patra demanded an apology from former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Congress interim President Sonia Gandhi, former party president Rahul Gandhi and Sushilkumar Shinde for “helping” Imran Khan in attacking India at the international forum.
Sambit Patra said, “I am very much hurt about the speech wherein Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan at UNGA said that it is Congress party’s home minister who has publicly shared about terrorist camps in India and we all know who that Congress home minister was.”
