Panaji: BJP National Spokesman Sambit Patra on Wednesday accused some elements of trying to create anti-BJP atmosphere in the country during US President Donald Trump’s visit.

Patra said that similar attempts were made earlier during visit of then US President Barack Obama by creating an atmosphere projecting that Churches were being attacked in India.

The BJP leader was in Goa to address interactive session on “Building Foundations of a New India.”

Patra, who has been featuring regularly in television debates, said that section of media was waiting with the hope that during Trump’s press conference, there would be a statement on CAA.

“Some journalists were anticipating that Trump would make some statement on CAA,” he said.

“They (journalists) were waiting for America to take this question on CAA and they felt that somewhere Trump will speak against our Prime minister Narendra Modi,” he said.

“But look at the way Trumpt handled it. Hats off to him. He said no answers on CAA. He said it is right of India. I cannot say anything. India is a sovereign country,” Batra narrated.

The BJP spokesman said that few of the people were left with black faces after Trump refused to answer on CAA.

“I am surprised that few people gets upset even someone praises our own country,” he said.

Recalling then US President Barak Obama’s visit, Batra said that it was that time that the attempts were made to create an atmosphere that Churches were being attacked.

“The Congress had created the atmosphere. Obama was asked question and he said there should be tolerance. It had made headlines world over,” he said.

“But later it was realized that church attack was in fact breaking of the glass due to hit by a football and some thief had stolen bulb from the church. No one had attacked the Church.”

“I condemn the action of those people who tried to create similar atmosphere on CAA during Trump’s visit,” he said.

Claiming that India has gone a long in way in projecting its image internationally, Patra recalled the visit of former US President Bill Clinton to New Delhi.

“Many people must be remembering. Many years ago when Bill Clinton had come to India, the member of parliaments were jumping on each other in the House to touch him. Everyone wanted to touch him,” he said.

“We have travelled a long way since then. From that time, now our Prime Minister Narendra Modi goes to the USA in Howdy Modi program and holds hand of their President Donald Trump and introduces him to the Americans.”
