Assam Minister targets Cong for not allowing Rao's body in Cong HQ

New Delhi, Aug 18 (UNI) Making a veiled attack on Congress leadership for allegedly not allowing the mortal remains of former Prime Minister PV Narasimha Rao to be brought to the AICC headquarters, BJP leader and Assam Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on Saturday drew the contrast when Narendra Modi himself walked along the body of Atal Bihari Vajpayee.
"I recall with pain how it felt when body of late Prime Minister PV Narasimha Rao was not allowed to enter into INC India office. Couldn't help but contrast the way PM Narendra Modi & BJP president Amit Shah walked along with Atalji in his final journey," Mr Sarma tweeted.
He such a contrast was a matter of 'pride' for him.
According to Congress leader Margaret Alva, Late Prime Minister Narasimha Rao's body "was not let into the AICC compound".
In 2016, Ms Alva had said: "Gun carriage was parked on the pavement outside the gate. Whatever the differences were, he was the Prime Minister, he had been Congress president, he was Chief Minister, he was party general secretary. When a man is dead you do not treat him that way".
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday joined thousands others in mourning the demise of Atal Bihari Vajpayee as he walked along the funeral cortege.
A sombre looking PM Modi was seen walking along with BJP chief Amit Shah and other party leaders as the body of Vajpayee was slowly being moved towards Rashtriya Shakti Sthal, where mortal remains of Vajpayee was laid to rest.
