In the aftermath of the Uri terror attack and the subsequent surgical strikes conducted by India across the LoC, political parties have come vehemently in support of the Indian army as well as Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Earlier, Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi took a major detour from his usual narrative and congratulated Prime Minister Modi for the “first action worthy of his stature”. Now, Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal has come out in support of the Prime Minister.

In a video released by him, Arvind Kejriwal has not only lauded PM Modi for his actions but also strongly condemned the “false propaganda” being floated around by Pakistan.

 

“Last week, our army bravely avenged the Uri attack – in which 20 soldiers were martyred – and entered the terrorist camps to conduct surgical strikes. I have hundreds of disagreements and contentions with the prime minister on various issues but the conviction that he has shown in this situation, I salute him for it,” Kejriwal said.

He then lashed out at Pakistan saying it had lost all control after the surgical strikes and indulged in blatant false propaganda against India. He describes how Pakistan is taking buses full of journalists to the spot where India claims to have conducted the surgical strikes and tries to oppose the claim by showing that life in the said area is going on as normal.

Emphasising that several international news organisations like BBC and the New York Times were running reports questioning the existence of such an operation by India, Kejriwal added that Pakistan is working hard to insult India on an international level.

“My blood boiled looking at this. The BBC, New York Times also questioned whether the surgical strikes actually happened? Pakistan is hell bent on tarnishing India’s image. I appeal to the prime minister that just like he, along with the army, answered strongly on land, they should also unmask the false propaganda being floated by Pakistan. The way Pakistan is continuously calling us a liar, that should also be challenged. The whole country is with you, we all are with you,” he said.

He ended the video hailing the country.

    One must have heard the proverb 'the licking or biting of a dog is harmful in both cases'. So the heading of the news praise as well as demand in this case by Khujli from PM is hardly of any importance.A joker CM of UT working under direct control of LG is hardly any important post whose comments should be taken seriously.

              most of the stani muslims pedigree is from Hindus who converted to Islam under duress. if you have guts then go back to your roots and push out the descendants of invaders from stan.
