Talking to media persons, he said, “Terrorism is used by the BJP government to win elections. A number of terrorist attacks have
taken place in the past five years.”

“No one was killed in Balakot air strike. Even none of the international agency was able to prove that 200 militants were killed. Balakot airstrike was a planned conspiracy. It was supposed to happen,” he said.

“Even after getting information from intelligence sources regarding Pulwama attack, no pre-emptive measures were taken. And if you had information about Balakot, then why didn’t you take action against these camps. Why were you waiting for something like Pulwama to happen,” he said.

“BJP is involved in the whole thing. It is going to bring the sectarian conflict to win elections,” he said. Attacking the saffron party, he said, “BJP’s Gujarat model is false. The state is suffering. BJP leaders are upset with the party. They feel that they are bonded labourers.”

Gujarat went to polls on April 23. The counting of votes will take place on May 23.
