When the BJP leaders noticed this, they filed a complaint against the Congress at Raipur’s Civil Lines police station, accusing them of dividing the country
New Delhi: The Chhattisgarh unit of the Indian National Congress tweeted a map of India on October 13 where the entire Kashmir was not visible. This happened as the handle was attempting to blame chief minister Raman Singh for making the state poorer.
When the BJP leaders noticed this, they filed a complaint against the Congress at Raipur’s Civil Lines police station, accusing them of dividing the country.
“On October 14, BJP filed a complaint against the Congress. AICC’s Chhattisgarh unit tweeted a picture of India’s map where Kashmir was not showing fully. We came to complain about this. The Congress has divided the country for votes. Even their national president goes to JNU and calls those who divide the country ‘kids’ and forgives them. It is not the first time that this is happening. They have done this twice before,” says BJP spokesperson Naresh Chandra Gupta.
The police have said that they would investigate the matter.
Chief minister Singh took to Twitter, too, expressing his displeasure with the callous act of the Congress social media team. He called Pradesh Congress Committee (PCC) Pakistan Congress Party and said that the party was looking to disintegrate the nation further.
काँग्रेस की नीति देश को जोड़ने में कम तोड़ने में ज्यादा रही है। @INCChhattisgarh द्वारा कश्मीर को देश के मानचित्र से अलग कर पाकिस्तान को भेंट करना, उनके इसी सोच का परिणाम है। जनता इन जयचंदों को पहचान गई है, आगामी चुनाव में इनको करारा सबक भी मिल जाएगा। #PakistanCongressCommittee— Dr Raman Singh (@drramansingh) October 14, 2018
However, the Congress has not only apologised for the error and removed the controversial tweet but also said that the BJP need not make it a political issue as both the RSS and the central government had done this kind of mistakes before.
