New Delhi, Dec 6 (UNI) The BJP today mocked at Congress president Sonia Gandhi's ''belated'' views on Nandigram violence, saying perhaps she was waiting for the permission from the CPI-M for speaking on the issue.
BJP spokesman Vijay Kumar Malhotra said Ms Gandhi's had for the first time said something on Nandigram after West Bengal Chief Minister Buddadeb Bhattacharjee himself openly regretted and admitted administrative failure in the violence-hit area.
He said Ms Gandhi was yet to speak out her mind on the 1984 anti-Sikh riots in Delhi in which ''Congressmen led the murderous attack on the Sikhs''. She was silent on the plight of 500,000 Kashmiri Pandits ousted by fundamentalists in Jammu and Kashmir but was repeating her accusations against Chief Minister Narendra Modi as ''merchant of death'' even after six years after the Gujarat riots.
''This only betrays Ms Gandhi's anti-Hindu mindset,'' Mr Malhotra alleged.
