Kolkata (West Bengal) [India], October 30 (ANI): Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) President Amit Shah on Monday slammed Congress President Sonia Gandhi and vice president Rahul Gandhi and asked them to clarify the grand old party's stand on separatists in Kashmir and illegal migration of Rohingyas.

While speaking at a public rally in Chamba district, Shah said: "Rahul ji and Sonia ji should come here and reply on the issue. Himachal people and Gujarat people should ask them what is the Congress' stand on the issue of Rohingyas. And what is the stand of the Congress on raising freedom slogans."

"The Congress leaders are supporting those who are raising slogans in favour of Kashmir's independence. Also why they should be allowed when the government of India is saying they are a security threat," the BJP chief said.

"When in Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) slogans like 'Bharat Tere Tukade Hazar Honge (India, you will become a thousand pieces)' were raised, Rahul 'baba' went there to express solidarity with them," he said.

Further taking a jibe at Congress leader P Chidambaram, Shah said it was him who asked the Centre to allow the Rohingya intruders into the country.

"It's Chidambaram who wrote a letter to the Prime Minister asking him to allow the Rohingya intruders to come as they were being tormented," he added.

Subsequently, Shah also accused state Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh of corruption and ruining the state.

"In the last three years not even a single scam has come to light. The Congress only promoted corruption, with scams worth Rs 12 lakh thousand crore taking place in the previous UPA (United Progressive Alliance) regime," he further added.

The BJP president is currently on a five-day tour to the state ahead of the Himachal Pradesh Assembly elections which will be held on November 9. (ANI)
