Senior Congress leader P Chidambaram on Sunday attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi over miscreants reportedly disrupting Christmas-related events in Haryana and Assam, saying that instead of exhortations, the PM should direct the BJP governments there to identify those involved and bring them before a court of law.
The former home minister said that on a day when the prime minister exhorted people to recall the teachings of Jesus Christ, miscreants disrupted a Christmas programme in a private school in Haryana.
“Who are these miscreants? Reports say they shouted ‘Jai Shri Ram’ and ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’. On the next day, a church service was disrupted in Assam,” Chidambaram said.
“Instead of exhortations, the PM should direct the BJP governments of Haryana and Assam to identify the miscreants and bring them before a Court of law,” he said.
The prime minister should also exhort the Hindutva brigade to read the teachings of Jesus Christ, Chidambaram added.
