BJP plans nationwide protests over Bilawal Bhutto's remarks against PM Modi

New Delhi, December 16: Perturbed over Pakistan Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari's remarks against Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the BJP has planned nationwide protests on Saturday.

The protests will be held in all state capitals across the country. "BJP karyakartas will burn the effigy of Pakistan and Pakistani Foreign Minister and will strongly condemn the shameful statement of Pakistani Foreign Minister," the party said in a statement.

"The Pakistani foreign minister's remark is highly derogatory, defamatory and full of cowardice which has been given just to remain in power and save the government," the party said in a statement.

"The statement is also aimed at misleading the world and divert global attention from Pakistan's collapsing economy, lawlessness and anarchy in Pakistan, simmering differences in the Pakistani army, its deteriorating global relations and the fact that Pakistan has become the major sanctuary for terrorists. What more can be expected from Pakistan's foreign minister which reflects his and his government's desperation and mental bankruptcy," it said.

BJP workers also staged a protest on Friday against Pakistan Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari over his statement on PM Narendra Modi outside Pakistan High Commission in Delhi.

The BJP said India's foreign policy was being appreciated globally, while Pakistan was facing backlash from even smaller nations. "On one hand we have our Prime Minister Narendra Modi under whose leadership India has left its indelible mark on various global fora, and on the other hand, we have Pakistan which has faced ridicule and insult on various international platforms. On one hand, India's foreign policy is being appreciated globally, while on the other hand, Pakistan is facing backlash from even smaller nations," the BJP said.

It said that Pakistan's foreign minister Bilawal Bhutto's statement against Prime Minister Modi was highly condemnable and totally uncalled for.
