In a tweet, the former Union minister said: “No 'Azadi' for Kashmir but desire 'Azadi' from this government: polarisation , bigotry, love-jihad , gau rakshaks. Let's begin in Gujarat.”
Sibal’s tweet comes a day after Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched a scathing attack on the Congress, accusing it of "shamelessly" taking a U-turn on Kashmir and lending its voice for "Kashmir's azadi".
Modi’s remarks were in response to senior Congress leader P Chidambaram’s pitch for greater autonomy for Jammu and Kashmir.
No 'Azadi' for Kashmir but desire 'Azadi' from this government: polarisation , bigotry, love-jihad , gau rakshaks. Let's begin in Gujarat .— Kapil Sibal (@KapilSibal) October 30, 2017
"All of a sudden, those who were in power till yesterday have taken a U-turn. Shamelessly, they are making a statement and are lending their voice for Kashmir's azadi," Modi said.
Without taking Chidambaram's name, the Prime Minister said, "I'm surprised that those who were in power at the Centre, those who were responsible for the country's internal security and national security (are saying this)."
The PM made the statement while addressing a public meeting in Congress-ruled Karnataka on Sunday. Later in the day, the PM tweeted that the Congress was “disconnected with people’s aspirations”.
Karnataka wants politics of development. Congress is disconnected with people's aspirations!— Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) October 29, 2017
Hitting back at Modi, Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah said on Monday that the BJP was “against the principle of democracy”.
The ideology of BJP is against the principles of democracy. Equity & social unity without disparity are the tenets of Congress @INCKarnataka— Siddaramaiah (@siddaramaiah) October 29, 2017
In a series of tweets, the CM said the BJP was “day-dreaming” that Congressmen in the state would switch sides after Gujarat elections.
@BJPKarnataka is day dreaming that many from Congress will shift their side to BJP post Gujarat elections. Who stops day dreamers!— Siddaramaiah (@siddaramaiah) October 29, 2017
