The BJP hit out at the Congress over registration of an FIR in Chhattisgarh against BJP Delhi unit spokesperson Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga for his remarks against Rajiv Gandhi, and said it will only 'expose' the former prime minister
New Delhi: The BJP on Sunday hit out at the Congress over registration of an FIR in Chhattisgarh against BJP Delhi unit spokesperson Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga for his remarks against Rajiv Gandhi, and said it will only "expose" the former prime minister.
"I have just got to know that the Congress has registered an FIR against Sardar Tajinder Bagga also. These 'Congressi' will drag the name of Rajiv Gandhi through court and expose him. Let's have one more case. Friends, do you believe or not that Gandhi had a hand in the 1984 riots," BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra tweeted.

He also took a swipe at the Congress, saying the party is now lodging an FIR against Sikhs for speaking the "truth" on the anti-Sikh riots in 1984. "If the Congress dares, let it file an FIR against Jagdish Tytler and Kamal Nath, and not on Bagga," Patra tweeted in Hindi.
Patra's reaction came after the Youth Congress tweeted a copy of the FIR, claiming the "virus of hate" will not be tolerated.

Bagga also reacted furiously to the FIR and attacked Gandhi again.
हुआ तो हुआ...कहने वाले इन सवालों का जवाब दे पाएंगे?
उन सिख परिवारों का क्या, जो आज तक उन खौफनाक यादों के साथ जी रहे हैं?
कभी सोनिया, राहुल या प्रियंका गांधी ने 1984 के प्रायोजित सिख नरसंहार के लिए देश से माफी मांगी?
