UPA conspired to defame Modi: Rajnath Singh
Home Minister Rajnath Singh also trained his gun at the then home minister, P Chidambaram, for coining ‘saffron terror’ and ‘Hindu terror’
New Delhi: Accusing erstwhile UPA government of hatching a ‘deep conspiracy’ to frame Narendra Modi when he was Gujarat’s Chief Minister, Home Minister Rajnath Singh yesterday alleged that the previous regime had done a ‘flip-flop’ on the links of Ishrat Jehan with terror outfit Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT).
Without naming P Chidambaram, Rajnath accused the then home minister with giving ‘colour’ to terrorism by coining the term ‘saffron terror’.
Responding to a calling attention motion on ‘alleged alteration of affidavit relating to Ishrat Jehan case’ in the Lok Sabha, the home minister said, “Unfortunately, I have to say this that there was a flip-flop by UPA government in the Ishrat Jehan case. Colour, creed and religion should not be associated with terrorism. Terror has no colour... The seculars gave colour to terrorism. Selective secularism cannot be accepted by the country.”
