BJP put up a poster of Hafeez Saeed and Rahul Gandhi, accusing the Congress vice-president of speaking the language of Pakistan, reported the Indian Express.

Responding to BJP move, Congress too has pasted posters showing the PM Modi with Afzal Guru, Hafiz Saeed and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) leader Mehbooba Mufti, questioning Modi's ‘patriotic' credentials.

A protest march was later organised by both the parties against each other's stand on 'anti-national' slogans raised at the JNU campus earlier this week.

"Rahul Gandhi has been exposed. We have been protesting his anti-national support to Afzal Guru and the latter's supporters in JNU. We will make people aware of how it is hurting national interest," BJP national secretary Tarun Chugh was quoted as saying.

"The BJP started it. They installed a poster of Rahul Gandhi with Hafiz Saeed. We were forced to expose them. We have explained how Modi is seeking the support of PDP in J&K, a party which perceives Afzal Guru as a martyr," responded State Congress secretary Dinesh Bassi.
