Amit Shah takes ‘Italian culture’ dig at Cong after Kharge attacks PM

NEW DELHI: Home minister Amit Shah on Saturday attacked Mallikarjun Kharge‘s “Kashmir se kya waasta hai” remark in reference to BJP raising the issue of removal of Article 370 of the Constitution in Rajasthan, saying it was shameful that the Congress president is asking such a question, which reflected his party’s “Italian culture” due to which it can’t see the very idea of India.
“I would like to remind the Congress party that J&K is an integral part of India, and every state and citizen has the right over J&K, just as the people of J&K have the right over the rest of India,” Shah said, taking to X to respond to Kharge’s remark.
Shah and other BJP leaders, including party president J P Nadda, shared a clip of Kharge’s speech on X, in which he is heard targeting BJP for talking about removal of Article 370 in Rajasthan. “Are bhai, yahan ke logon se kya wasta hai (what has it got to do with the people here)?” Kharge is heard asking in the clip.
Shah said, Congress doesn’t know that many brave sons of Rajasthan have sacrificed their lives for peace and security in Kashmir. “But it is not merely the fault of the Congress leaders. It is mostly the Italian culture of the Congress party that is to blame for not understanding the very idea of India,” the home minister said and added, “such statements hurt every patriotic citizen who cares for the unity and integrity of the nation. People will certainly give their reply to Congress.”
Shah further said, “And for the kind information of Congress, it was not Article 371, but Article 370, that was abrogated by the Modi govt. However, it is only expected of Congress to make such horrendous mistakes. Such blunders made by it have haunted our nation for decades now.”
Nadda slammed Kharge’s remarks, saying, “Another day, another gem from Congress! Kharge Ji displays the typical Congress mindset which wanted Jammu and Kashmir to remain disconnected from the rest of India. He doesn’t even know that that Article in question is Article 370 and not 371!”
