The BJP will hold countrywide protests from Thursday against Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde's "Hindu terror" remarks, Rajnath Singh said after being elected as the party president Wednesday.


"The recent statement of Shinde shows the government is not serious on its fight against terrorism," Rajnath Singh said, addressing party workers here.

"Just for vote bank politics, they are poisoning the atmosphere of the nation with communalism. We condemn the statement," he said.

He said the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) would hold countrywide protests against Shinde's comments.
