New Delhi: CPI(M) today slammed BJP chief Amit Shah over his “firecrackers” remark saying the same will burst all over India when the NDA loses Bihar Assembly polls and suggested the leader stop “communalising” his party’s “certain” defeat even as it accused him of insulting the state.
“@AmitShah when you lose Bihar crackers will burst all over India. Stop communalising your certain defeat. #ShahInsultsBihar,” CPI (M) tweeted Karat as saying.
Addressing an election rally in Bihar’s Raxaul today, Shah said that there will be bursting of fire crackers in Pakistan if his party loses the Assembly polls.
During the rally, he asked the audience if they wanted crackers to go off in Pakistan while appealing to them to vote for the BJP-led NDA.
“Do you want the return of Jungle Raaj-2? If by any mistake BJP loses, victory and defeat may be in Bihar but fire crackers will go off in Pakistan. Do you want crackers being burst in Pakistan?” he said.
