Sultanpur, Feb 11 (ANI): Taking a dig at the Congress, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Sushma Swaraj has said the ruling party is misleading the general public by playing emotional tactics.
"I am unable to understand that why are two separate ministers of the same government saying different things. Chidambaram ji is the l Home minister and he is directly related to law and order. He straightforwardly said that the Batla House encounter was not fake. But yesterday, when Law Minister Salman Khurshid was rebuked by the election commission, then he thought of raising up a new issue, so he said that Sonia Gandhi cried over the Batla House encounter," Swaraj told media here.
"After so many years, she was reminded of this thing, and one is home minister and the other is law minister, and both have differences. Do they think the people are fools and are trying to mislead them," Swaraj added.
Earlier, Khurshid said: "We spoke to the Prime Minister and Sonia Gandhi. When we showed photographs of that incident to Mrs. Gandhi, she wept bitterly and requested us not to show her those pictures. She told us to speak to the PM immediately. But due to election we could not take that idea," he said.
The Batla House encounter officially known as Operation Batla House, took place on September 19, 2008, against suspected Indian Mujahideen (IM) terrorists in Batla House locality in Jamia Nagar, Delhi, in which two suspected terrorist, Atif Amin and Mohamed Sajid, two other suspects Mohd Saif and Zeeshan were arrested, while one accused Ariz Khan managed to escape.
Encounter specialist and Delhi Police inspector Mohan Chand Sharma, who led the police action was killed during the incident. (ANI)
