BJP today staged a protest against Congress in front of the party’s office in Delhi and outside Sonia Gandhi's residence, against its alleged anti-India stand on the Batla house encounter. Earlier Digvijay Singh dubbed the 2008 Batla House encounter as ‘fake’ and asked the government in Centre to order a judicial probe.
Denouncing Congress, BJP accused Congress of propagating false facts in the Batla House encounter case. Targeting Congress President Sonia Gandhi for her alleged anti-India stand on the matter, BJP termed Congress double faced.
The protests led by Delhi unit BJP President Satish Upadhyaya drew attention towards Congress’s alleged anti-national stand on this big issue.
The Batla House encounter was taken place on September 19, 2008, against Indian Mujahideen (IM) terrorists, in which two suspected terrorists were killed while two other suspects were arrested.
