Chandigarh, July 27, 2021 (Yes Punjab News)
BJP national general secretary Tarun Chugh said here today that the Congress had a covert agenda of supporting terrorism in the country.
In a statement, Chugh said the way the Congress MPs expressed their opposition to the Unlawful Activities ( Prevention) Bill, 2019 and staged a walk-out in the Lok Sabha clearly demonstrated that the Congress would defy any action that the Centre would take against anti-national forces.
Chugh said the Bill amends the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, 1967, providing special procedures to deal with terrorist activities and individuals and groups that foster terrorism in India. He said he failed to understand why Congress president Sonia Gandhi was opposed to any anti-terror action taken by the Centre.
“Is she hand-in-glove with terrorists or is she trying to lend them support to encourage subversive activities in the country?”, Chugh asked.
Chugh suggested the Congress to adopt a national perspective in addressing terrorist activities instead of indulging in its parochial and short-sighted politics. He said it was time the Congress got into serious iontrospection. “Else the party would be decimated in the country sooner than expected”, he added.
