Sibal: Pak was split because of Cong

New Delhi, October 19

The Congress on Saturday accused the BJP of raising the issue of revocation of Article 370 provisions in the Assembly polls for electoral gains and said Prime Minister Narendra Modi must tell the people that it was because of the Congress that Pakistan’s integral part split from it.

“Modi ji only remembers (Article) 370. He does not know when Pakistan split and who did it. It was we (Congress) who split Pakistan’s integral part from it... where were you (Modi) then?” senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal asked.

“Tell the people of Haryana that it was because of the Congress that Pakistan’s integral part was split from it. This happened under the Congress rule. Praise the Congress, but you don’t have the guts to do that,” he said.

Training his guns at Modi, the Congress leader asked what has the BJP government under him done for implementation of Article 47 of the Constitution which states that raising the level of nutrition and the standard of living and improving public health is the duty of the state. “You only remember Article 370 but you do not keep in mind your constitutional duties. Around 93 per cent children are not getting proper nutrition and your entire focus is on Article 370,” he said. “You are doing this because of the Assembly polls... You do not know about the people who are suffering,” Sibal said. — PTI
