New Delhi, Jan 11 : The Congress on Thursday hit out at Union Shipping Minister Nitin Gadkari for slamming the Indian Navy for creating obstacles in “development projects in Mumbai” and said it was “shameful and unacceptable” and called the BJP “pseudo-nationalist”.
“Shameful and Unacceptable! Ex-BJP President and Union Minister Nitin Gadkari insults ‘Indian Navy’, questions their valour and dedication.
“Pseudo-Nationalist BJP now wants to issue certificates of ‘loyalty’ to India’s armed forces,” tweeted Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala.
Gadkari earlier accused the Navy of creating obstacles in “development projects in Mumbai”, including opposing the plans for a floating jetty at Nariman Point.
