New Delhi: BJP on Monday hit back at Congress General Secretary Digvijay Singh's remarks on Bodhgaya serial blasts issue, alleging that he has a habit of ‘politicizing and communalizing’ terrorism and showing softness towards the menace.
Digvijay Singh had tweeted ‘Amit Shah promises a Grand Temple at Ayodhya. Modi addresses Bihar BJP workers and asks them to teach Nitish a lesson. Next day bomb blasts at Mahabodhi Temple at Bodhgaya. Is there a connection? I don't know.’
"Digvijay Singh's record of politicizing and communalizing terrorism is well-known. He publicly declared in Azamgarh that the Batla House terrorists were innocent," BJP'S Deputy Leader in Rajya Sabha Ravi Shankar Prasad.
Prasad's party colleague Murli Manohar Joshi dismissed Digvijay Singh's suggestion that there may be a connection between Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi's call to party workers to teach his Bihar counterpart Nitish Kumar a lesson and blasts taking place in Bodh Gaya the next day.
"Digvijay Singh has the habit of seeing things where they are not. The Bodh Gaya blasts should be taken seriously. This poses a danger to the cultural and religious ethos of India. It is a serious attack on the country where a place of peace and non-violence has been targeted," Joshi told reporters.
