BJP, media wrongly attributed words to Kejriwal: Sisodia

Panaji, Oct 5: AAP leader Manish Sisodia today alleged that BJP and the media attributed words to Delhi Chief Arvind Kejriwal which he never uttered on the issue of the surgical strikes by the Army across the LoC.

Referring to a video message of Kejriwal, Sisodia told reporters in Goa that the AAP convener never uttered the word "saboot" (proof), but was asking Prime Minister Narendra Modi to fight the propaganda unleashed by the international media with Pakistan questioning the authenticity of the operations.

Kejriwal had on Monday released a video message "saluting" the Prime Minister for the surgical strikes across the LoC and urging him to "unmask" Pakistan's propaganda.

However, BJP yesterday said his remarks amounted to "seeking proof" of the Army action, while AAP hit back saying their rival party was playing politics.

"We have only demanded that PM should stringently fight back the propaganda by the international media on behalf of Pakistan suspecting the authenticity of the surgical strikes. It is BJP and the media which have attributed word 'saboot' which is not there at all in the footage," Sisodia said.

"Those who have watched Arvind Kejriwal's video footage, they have appreciated him. They (who have seen the video) have said it is true that at the international level, the media is poking fun at the surgical strikes. There is a propaganda happening at the international level.
