New Delhi: In a shocking statement,Opposition leader from Congress Sanjay Nirupam has called the Indian Army’s surgical strikes aross the LoC a fake one.
“Every Indian wants Surgical strikes against Pak but not a fake one to extract just political benefit by BJP,” Nirupam tweeted.
At the time when everyone is speaking in one voice, and praising the Indian Army, Nirupam’s shocking statement has not gone down well with people.
Not just Nirupam, but senior Congress leader P Chidambaram is also facing wrath for demanding proof of the surgical strikes.
“The much-hyped surgical strike on last Wednesday night was not the only time that Army had crossed the LoC to take punitive action,” he said.
While Congress President Sonia Gandhi and party Vice President Rahul Gandhi have lauded the security forces and the government for taking the decisive action. They have expressed solidarity with the government and the armed forces.
Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal has also urged the Modi government to show ‘proof’ of the strikes. While lauding PM Narendra Modi for taking strong action against Pakistan,he said that the government should present proof of the surgical strikes so that the neighbouring country does not raise questions.
BJP has lashed out at both AAP and Congress for politicising the issue and questioning the Army.
