New Delhi: The Bharatiya Janata Party on Friday said that it will boycott all meetings called by Union Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde from now. It added that it will show black flags to Shinde.
The main Opposition party has been, for a while, upset with Shinde after he allegedly made a controversial 'Hindu terror' remark at the Congress's Chintan Shivir in Jaipur. "Training camps of both BJP and RSS are promoting Hindu terrorism. Whether it is Samjhauta blast or Mecca Masjid blast or Malegaon blast, they plant bombs and blame it on the minorities," Shinde had said.
Angered by the remarks, both the BJP and the RSS demanded an apology from Shinde and the Congress party. The BJP also went ahead with a nationwide protest, which was led by its newly elected president Rajnath Singh.
Rajnath Singh also demanded that Shinde be sacked otherwise the BJP would disrupt the Budget Session. "We will protest till Shinde is sacked. If there is no action taken, we will fight it in Parliament," he had said.
