President of the Bharatiya Janata Party, Amit Shah, was slammed by former finance minister and congress leader P Chidambaram over his “firecrackers” statement saying that if the BJP was to lose in Bihar, there will be relief and celebrations among many others – scientists, writers, moderate citizens and historians.
Tom Vadakan, congress spokesperson, also found fault with Shah for his comments and stated that the people of will give an appropriate reply to the BJP.
This comes after the president of the BJP stated on Thursday that there would be a bursting of firecrackers should his party lose the Bihar assembly elections. While addressing an election rally in the state, he questioned the audience if they wished for crackers to go off in Pakistan, at the same time imploring for them to vote for the BJP-led NDA.
Janata Dal United leader, KC Tyagi, stated that Shah has offended Bihar’s people by his comment. “He knows that if the BJP does not win the elections, he will have to answer. Therefore, in order to spare himself embarrassment, he’s saying these things,” said Tyagi.
