BJP on Thursday accused the UPA of suffering from "secular amnesia" with respect to Hindu sentiments in the country.
"It seems that the government suffers from secular amnesia. When it comes to the sentiments of the majority Hindu community in the country, they feel free to hurt the faith at their own convenience," party spokesperson Rajiv Pratap Rudy told reporters in New Delhi on Thursday.
"The UPA in its latest affidavit on the Ram Sethu issue in the Supreme Court yesterday has accepted the existence of Lord Rama but now they say that the bridge created by Lord Rama was destroyed by himself," he added.
"The UPA is trying to create a comic situation out of a community's faith," he claimed.
The saffron party also claimed that the UPA was paying "the kickback to DMK" for the southern party's support to the government in the trust vote.
"This is an incentive and a kickback of the UPA to its southern allies like the DMK for their support. The government is trying to barter faith for its existence," he said.
