Kaithal: Union Home Minister Amit Shah attacked the Congress for its stand on Article 370 and also took on the party over criticism of the 'shastra puja' performed on the first Rafale aircraft acquired by the country.

"Congress leader Rahul Gandhi opposed scrapping of Article 370. I want to ask Rahul to make it clear whether he is in favour or against the scrapping of Article 370," the BJP president said at a poll rally here, referring to the abrogation of the special status for Jammu and Kashmir. "The Congress has to oppose whatever BJP does."

In an apparent reference to comments by some Congress leaders on the 'shastra puja' performed by Defence Minister Rajnath Singh, he said Congress people felt bad about this too.

Singh took delivery of the multi-role combat aircraft in France on Tuesday after performing a traditional Dussehra worship of arms. "Yesterday was Vijayadashami, marking the victory of good over evil... I want to congratulate the prime minister and the defence minister on Rafale," said Shah.

Shah once again invoked the National Register of Citizens (NRC) exercise and said that every illegal migrant in the country will be sent home before the next parliamentary elections.
