KERALA: Thiruvananthapuram, the capital city of the Indian state of Kerala, saw posters carrying former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto’s pictures and invited criticism from the Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP).

Indian media reported that All India Democratic Women’s Association (AIDWA), the women wing of the Communist Party of India, pasted Ms Bhutto’s pictures on posters and invitation cards ahead of AIDWA’s 13th national conference occuring from Jan 6 to Jan 9. The posters also contain text outlining Ms Bhutto’s portfolio and educational background.

The BJP leader Sandeep Washpati, while reacting to the posters, said Ms Bhutto was the prime minister of India’s foe who let not stone unturned to degrade India. “Those who respect India’s enemy are India’s enemies”, he added.
