"The kind of behaviour the Congress party has shown today deserves a democratic surgical strike. They're appeasing Pakistan every day. The BJP condemns the statement of Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury, LOP of Congress and Randeep Surjewala, the head of media," he added.

Patra further added that Congress attacks India, Indian Army, Intelligent Forces, Indian Jawans and Government of India on a regular basis.

"Congress has time and again found religion in terror. They coined the terms Saffron Terror and Hindu terrorism. At the behest of Sonia Gandhi, they had coined the term 'Saffron Terror'," said Patra.

Patra further asserted that Congress leader Tarun Gogoi had recently called Prime Minister Narendra Modi, a 'Hindu Jinnah'.

"The Congress attacked Modi Ji and called him Hindu Jinnah. Using words like Hindu Jinnah, Hindu terrorism is to prove Hindus as terrorists somewhere. Rahul Gandhi also said that, we are not afraid of SIMI or Islamic terrorism, we are afraid of Hindus," said Patra.

Patra said after Chowdhury stated that the "troll regiment of RSS" would have been more strident and vociferous had arrested Jammu and Kashmir cop Davindar Singh been "Davindar Khan" and raised a question on who the "real culprits" behind the Pulwama attack were.
