The BJP staged nationwide protests on Saturday against Pakistani Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto’s personal attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi as the ruling party sought to garner support on the issue. Its members raised slogans and burnt effigies of Pakistan and Bhutto during their protests in state capitals across the country.
Protests were held in every state
Its various state unit presidents, including Bhupendra Singh Chaudhary in Uttar Pradesh and Sanjay Jaiswal in Bihar, led a march of party workers against Bhutto’s statement.
