The senior BJP leader attacked the grand old party on the Ram temple issue, saying top Congress leaders such as Mallikarjun Kharge, Rahul Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi, did not take part in the temple’s consecration ceremony to please its minority vote bank.

Targeting the Congress on Kashmir, he said: “For appeasement politics, they did not revoke Article 370.” The Congress did not revoke the article despite a rise in terrorism in the area, he said.

“You all made Narendra Modi ji the Prime Minister for the second time, and on August 5, 2019, he scrapped Article 370. Now our Tricolour proudly flutters in Kashmir,” he said.

Chief minister Nayab Singh Saini, who is contesting the Karnal assembly bypoll and former chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar, who is in the fray for the Karnal Lok Sabha seat, were also present.
