Capt. Amarinder hits back at Jaitley, tells him to practice what he preaches
Hitting back at senior Bharatiya Janata Party leader Arun Jaitely for proclaiming himself to be an opponent of terrorism, former Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh on Wednesday said that Jaitley has only vindicated his charge that he has double standards as he says or writes something but actually does quite contrary to that.
Earlier today, Jaitley claimed that in his writings and interviews his opposition to terrorism is well known.
Capt Amarinder reiterated that Jaitley was actually trying to run with the hare and hunt with the hounds.
"If he (Jaitley) is so aggressively opposed to terrorism, then how come he bank on the support of the same people who have built a memorial to the Operation Bluestar?" he asked.
"That is why I have been saying that you have double standards that you preach something and do something else," he added.
On the issue of Operation Bluestar, the Congress leader said: "While I need no certification from you about my stand on Operation Bluestar, let me tell you that the Congress president Sonia Gandhi and the Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh have apologized for it many times, but tell me has the BJP and L.K. Advani who proudly claim they pressed Indira Gandhi to send army to Golden Temple, ever apologized or expressed any regrets?"
