Union Home Minister Amit Shah has hit out at the Congress for holding nationwide protests on August 5, claiming that the grand-old-party deliberately chose the date as they oppose the Ram temple in Ayodhya.

“Congress chose this day for protest and wore black clothes because they want to give a subtle message to further promote their appeasement politics because on this day itself PM Modi laid the foundation of Ram Janambhoomi,” Amit Shah said.

The home minister said that the Congress held the protest on Friday even as there was no fresh summons issued by the Enforcement Directorate to the Gandhis in the National Herald scam case.
