BHARATIYA Janata Party (BJP) chief Amit Shah on Wednesday lambasted the Congress over its stand on the Armed Forces (Special Powers) Act, saying nobody can dilute the AFSPA as the BJP will be standing like a rock in support of security forces. Addressing a rally in Udhampur, Shah said, “The Congress and its leaders should feel ashamed of what they have announced in their manifesto -- to dilute AFSPA and withdraw sedition clause.”
“Nobody can dilute AFSPA as the BJP will be standing like a rock behind security forces who are protecting our borders,” Shah told the rally, organised in support of BJP leader Jitendra Singh. He also warned Pakistan, saying if a single bullet comes from there “we will fire shells from here”.
