'To Promote Appeasement Politics': Union Minister Amit Shah Slams Congress Leaders Over Inflation Protests

Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Friday slammed Congress and said that the party chose August 5 for protest and its leaders wore black clothes because they "want to give a subtle message to further promote their appeasement politics" on a day Prime Minister Narendra Modi laid the foundation of a grand Ram temple at Ayodhya two years back.

The Home Minister referred to Enforcement Directorate's probe in the National Herald case and said the agency "neither summoned nor inquired nor conducted a raid" on Friday and the Congress had held a protest.

"I can't understand why they protested today. Every day when they protest, they used to wear their usual normal dress but today they wore black clothes. Congress chose this day for protest and wore black clothes because they want to give a subtle message to further promote their appeasement politics because on this day itself PM Modi laid the foundation of Ram Janambhoomi," Amit Shah told news agency ANI.

"There was no riot in the country, no violence, the Prime Minister fulfilled the aspiration and faith of crores of people. Congress held a protest today and especially in black clothes at it wanted to give a subtle message that they oppose the foundation stone of Ram Janambhoomi and want to carry forward their policy of appeasement. This policy of appeasement is neither good for the country nor for Congress. It is due to the policy of appeasement that Congress is in the state in which it is today," he said.

Amit Shah also commented on the ED Probe of Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi in the National Herald case and said that "everyone should cooperate with the law and order system in the country".

"Congress should be responsible and must co-operate as per the law. The matter is going on the basis of complaints that have been filed. As far as ED is concerned, everybody should respect the law and order situation in the country," he said.

Meanwhile, Congress MPs led by Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi held a protest in the Parliament House complex on Friday wearing black clothes as part of the party's stir against the government on price rise and unemployment.
