NEW DELHI: The ruling BJP at the Centre came down heavily on the Congress-led opposition parties for questioning the Batla House encounter in 2008, a day after a Delhi court convicted an Indian Mujahideen operative Ariz Khan for killing Delhi Police Inspector Mohan Chand Sharma.
Addressing a press conference in the national capital on Tuesday, Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said, “Why is the Congress, Mamata Didi and all those who questioned the Batla House encounter silent now after the court’s verdict in this case.”
“Will Sonia Gandhi, Arvind Kejriwal and Mamata Banerjee apologise for misleading the entire nation over the Batla House encounter case,” the Union Minister asked.
Slamming the opposition parties for their questionable conduct in the case, which came as a big blow to the morale of the Delhi Police, Prasad said, “The BJP slams the leading opposition parties for failing to rise above petty politics over a very sensitive issue linked to the country’s security and questioning the action of the law and enforcement agencies. Will they apologise now after the court convicted an IM operative for killing a decorated Delhi Police officer during the Batla House encounter.”
“You might have listened to Salman Khurshid say that Sonia Gandhi had tears in her eyes when she got to know that two terrorists have been killed,” Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said while reacting to the Delhi Court convicting Ariz Khan in Batla House encounter case.
