Mangaluru: Member of All India Congress Committee, P V Mohan held a press meet at the District Congress Office here, on March 2.
Addressing the mediapersons, Mohan said, “BJP is full of lies. Nupur Sharma lied in Mangaluru and pointed false accusations on students of JNU. HRD Minister Smriti Irani lied in the Parliament and said that Rohit is not a Dalit.” He said that the Congress Party condemns such practices of the BJP as it has been proven by the labs based in Hyderabad that two of the JNU videos were doctored.
“In Jammu and Kashmir BJP is in an alliance with PDP, a party which says that Afzal’s hanging was a travesty of justice. PDP doesn’t consider Afzal Guru as a terrorist. The Sangh Parivar also praises Nathuram Godse who murdered the father of our nation. Now ABVP is trying to ruin the future of the students in JNU,” he said. He said that ABVP was also trying to divert the minds of students in various other institutions of the country. “I urge all students not to join ABVP and spread the vicious activities of this organization,” Mohan added.
“Sangh Parivar speaks about patriotism, but why don’t they hoist the try colour flag on Independence Day? Students, teachers and journalists were attacked at Patiala Court House by lawyers and a committee has been appointed by the Supreme Court to probe this incident,” he said.
He further said, “Congress Party has a history of 130 years and has had great leaders like Jawaharlal Nehru who spent eleven years in prison for the freedom of the country, just like his father Motilal Nehru. If BJP has to speak against the Congress Party, then they should take a dip in river Ganga first.”
