Jammu: Hitting out at the ruling BJP for its alleged terror connections, Congress on Saturday sought answers from the saffron party over its links with a LeT terrorist arrested in Jammu and Kashmir and demanded a high level probe into it. AICC representative Sukhpal Singh Khera told reporters here on Saturday that the Congress does not believe in playing politics over serious national issues like terrorism. JKPCC Chief Spokesperson Ravinder Sharma, senior leaders of PCC including General Secretary Th Balwan Singh, Yogesh Sawhney, Manmohan Singh, Gurdarshan Singh, Neeraj Gupta, Gajan Singh, Kapil Singh, Sahil Sharma, Chander Shekhar and others were also present in the press conference. Launching a scathing attack on BJP for various incidents of terror connections in past, which is quite serious and unfortunate, as saffron party leaders take nationalism high on its agenda for vote bank politics, he questioned nationalist credentials of others who had sacrificed lives for the nation but then why the presence of terrorists in their cadre goes unexplained by BJP? Referring to the issue of Talib Hussain Shah, a dreaded LeT terrorist prominent leader of IT Cell of BJP in J&K, who was spotted in the photograph with even Home Minister, Khera said how a simple denial by BJP is sufficient without a fair probe. Similarly Mohd Riyaz Attari, who was linked to BJP in Rajasthan especially with top BJP leader and leader of opposition Gulab Chand Kataria, was also found indulged in sensational murder of Kaniya Lal in Udaipur, which sent shock waves in the country. He referred to various other incidents in the past where terrorists were found linked with BJP or its senior leaders, raising questions about ruling party, for which only a fair probe and an answer to nation is needed. “Indian National Congress does not believe in playing politics over serious national issues like terrorism. However, multiple revelations of close links between the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and individuals caught in terror activities force us to ask some straight questions of a ruling party that loses no opportunity to preach to Indians about nationalism,” he added. Earlier, the Congress leader expressed shock and grief over recent tragedy at Shri Amarnath Shrine and expressed sympathies with bereaved families.
