BJP MP Anurag Thakur today accused Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi of siding with those who raised anti-India slogans and asked his party to clarify whether it thinks of Afzal Guru as a “terrorist or a nationalist”.  

 “Gandhi sides with those who shout anti-India slogans in Jawaharlal Nehru University. It speaks about Congress’ ideology,” Anurag Thakur said while addressing the students of law college in Jaipur today. 

“Events are organised in JNU in support of Afzal Guru and Congress leaders can be spotted there. The party should make it clear if it thinks of Afzal Guru as a terrorist or a nationalist,” Thakur said. 

He said Congress was a “sinking ship” and it was evident from the result of various elections post demonetisation. “In Chandigarh municipal corporation polls, BJP won 20 out of 26 seats. It shows people are with BJP and Prime Minister,” he said. 

Thakur said the Modi government is focusing on skill development programmes to help youths bag jobs. State Health minister Kalicharan Saraf was in for some criticism from the students when he claimed that the Vasundhara Raje government gave jobs to more than 11 lakh youths. 

Hooted at by students, the minister said that “they are not willing to listen to him” and returned to his seat.
