1. Masood further said that it was inappropriate for political parties to issue such written orders. We want to move forward with the ideology we work for. At such times you only mentioned Shri Ram Navami and Hanuman Chalisa. Ambedkar Jayanti, Good Friday and Ramzan are not mentioned in the order. All three are big festivals. There is a difference between us and others. While other parties talk about one religion, we talk about all religions. So, we should only talk about political issues. Celebrations of religious festivals are happening and will continue to happen, no one can stop them.
2. State Home Minister and BJP leader Dr Narottam Mishra, criticising Masood, said, why is the Party which once organised Iftar parties now making a U-turn ? Masood is unable to digest it.
