A day after PM Modi attacked Congress, Raj Babbar defends his statement calling Maoists as ‘Revolutionaries’

Raj Babbar went on to defend his statements by saying that prominent leaders of the Congress party were killed by the bullets. He said that BJP should stop using such words to insult the revolutionaries.

After Prime Minister Modi mounted a scathing attack on Congress for its alleged support to the left wing terrorists, senior Congress leader and Rajya Sabha MP Raj Babbar has said that he stands by his statements of referring Naxal terrorists as ‘Revolutionaries’.

Earlier, the actor-turned-politician during a poll campaign in Chattisgarh had compared Naxals to revolutionaries saying that “revolution” undertaken by them should be resolved through talks. Babbar had said that people whose rights have been taken away are laying their lives to get back their rights. He had sympathised with left-wing terrorists saying that usage of guns by either of the parties will not lead to any solution.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi while addressing a rally in poll-bound Chhattisgarh’s Jagdalpur yesterday had slammed Congress party for terming Naxals as ‘Revolutionaries’ and also had accused Congress leaders of protecting these ‘Urban Maoists’.

Responding to Prime Minister Modi’s scathing attack, Raj Babbar said, “I will again say what I have said before. Revolution happens with ideas and behaviour, with the weapon comes terrorism. Rights are gained by ballot not bullets. With bullets comes terrorism. I have said it earlier whatever they call themselves, you may name them as you like, but that deed should be done”.

Raj Babbar went on to defend his statements by saying that prominent leaders of the Congress party were killed by the bullets. He said that BJP should stop using such words to insult the revolutionaries.

“These are not just words, it’s a warning, by using such words they are insulting the revolutionaries. It’s important for people to talk about revolution. I had previously said that people who are spoiled, pick weapons and become terrorists,” said Raj Babbar.
