‘Supriya madam ko Gaza…’: Himanta taunts Sharad Pawar for Palestine statement

Hitting out at Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) supremo Sharad Pawar for his remark on the Israel-Palestine conflict, Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on Wednesday said that Pawar would send his daughter Supriya Sule to Gaza.

“I think Sharad Pawar will send Supriya madam to Gaza to fight for Hamas,” said Sarma, when asked about Pawar’s take on the ongoing conflict.

Sarma’s remarks came days after Sharad Pawar said that former Prime Ministers of India also “stood firmly with Palestine”. Terming Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s support for Israel as “unfortunate”, the NCP chief said that he neglected the real issue.

“The entire land is of Palestine and Israel encroached on their land. That place, land and houses, everything was of Palestine and later Israel took over it. Israel is an outsider and the land is originally of Palestine,” Pawar had said.

He had also stated that the NCP stands by the people who “originally” belonged to Israel.

Pawar’s remarks were condemned by the BJP. Earlier today, Union Minister Piyush Goyal said it is “very disturbing” when a senior leader like Sharad Pawar makes “preposterous statements” on India’s stand on a terror attack in Israel.

“Pawar ji was a part of the same government that shed tears on the Batla House encounter and slept while there were terror attacks on Indian soil,” Goyal said in a tweet.

Sharad Pawar’s statement came days after PM Modi expressed solidarity with Israel and condemned the terrorist attacks by Hamas.
