New Delhi: BJP national spokesperson Sambit Patra on Monday linked Samajwadi Party (SP) national president Akhilesh Yadav to his Jinnah statement accusing him of not treating Pakistan as India's real enemy. Addressing a press conference in Lucknow, Patra claimed that SP leader Akhilesh Yadav in an interview to a newspaper said that he does not consider Pakistan as India's real enemy. He said the BJP calls Pakistan our enemy for vote politics.
Sambit Patra also alleged that Akhilesh Yadav is not announcing the name of his candidate for the upcoming Assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh as he is giving tickets to people like Nahid Hasan. Had it not been for the execution of the Mumbai bomb blast accused Jacob Memon, Akhilesh would have fielded Jacob and fielded Kasab as a star campaign. They had done the entire process to free the terrorists.
Sambit Patra said Akhileshji should immediately apologise for the same. I want to ask Akhileshji whether the brothers and sisters of Kashmir who are killed by terrorists sent by Pakistan are not Indians. Patra alleged that those who love Jinnah, how they can refuse Pakistan. He had landed in Jinnah's name and reached Pakistan today.
