In Pics: Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad on India TV Chunav ManchRavi Shankar Prasad blasted the Congress and its vice president Rahul Gandhi for seeking proof of surgical strikes conducted by the Indian Army in PoK last year.
Ravi Shankar Prasad said, “There is no bhagwa attanwad (saffron terrorism). Saffron terrorism can never be a reality. Saffron is the tradition of this country, saffron is the colour of our tricolour.”
Quoting a media report, Ravi Shankar Prasad said: “Congress general secretary (now vice president) told (then) US Ambassador to India Timothy Roemer that the growth of radicalised Hindu group will pose a greater threat to Indian than LeT.”
On Patidar reservation, Ravi Shankar Prasad said that the deal finalised between the Congress and PAAS leader Hardik Patel is completely based upon quota and that it will not yield any positive result.
Ravi Shankar Prasad said that the entire Congress party is busy in promoting just one family. He said that an ordinary leader can never become the president of the Congress party unlike in the BJP.
Ravi Shankar Prasad said Congress insulted Sardar Patel who sacrificed his life for the larger purpose of creating an ‘united India’. “Sardar Patel died in 1950, but Bharat Ratna was conferred upon him in 1991.”
