Antony, Kejriwal are Pak agents, India's enemies: Narendra Modi

March 26, 2014 17:13 IST

Bharatiya Janata Party’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi on Wednesday targeted Defence Minister A K Antony and Arvind Kejriwal, calling them "agents of Pakistan and enemies of India" and speaking its language.

"Three AKs have emerged as the unique strength for Pakistan. One is AK-47 which has been used to cause bloodshed in Kashmir. The second is A K Antony, who informs Parliament that people wearing the dress of Pakistan army beheaded our soldiers while our army says Pakistanis had done so. Who do you want to benefit with your statement," he asked.

He also took a dig at Kejriwal, who resigned after 49 days as chiefmMinister in Delhi, as the "Third AK which is AK-49 who has just given birth to a new party".

"The map on his party's website has shown Kashmir in Pakistan. A senior member of his party is shouting himself hoarse demanding plebiscite in Kashmir. Pakistan is dancing over their statements. These agents of Pakistan, enemy of India, you are speaking the language of Pakistan," he said.

Invoking the name of Jan Sangh founder Shyama Prasad Mookerjee, Modi accused the trio of speaking the language of Pakistan while Mookerjee had sacrificed his life for Jammu and Kashmir.

“More Indian soldiers have sacrificed their lives here than in any war,” he said.

He was attacking Antony over his statement made in Parliament last year, when Pakistani army men had intruded into Mendhar sector in Jammu and Kashmir and killed two Indian soldiers, beheading one of them.
