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.

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.

                      This guy is a born marketing guy ...he figured out he is loosing space so came out with this smart video. India's professional army which executed the task as we don't need to prove it vs what stan is doing . So the fact is if you come out with any video stan will say its fake. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;We as Indians need to trust our Army . As regards to this guy he is hungry for publicity and go to any heights . The fact is he and his party are doing no work , big corruption and Zero governance ...he the Trump of indian politics ...he only talks .He done all his life he had nothing to demonstrate either as politician or from his past life

                              There was one report by CNN where in they too say no such attack took place. I strongly believe Indian Army does not need to lie, was feeling euphoric after seeing the news of the strike. Only hope this news also does not come out as false ans fake follow the recent trend of news of Govt achievements post 2014. Wish there was genuine strike. The world supported India on the claim, now its time to prove them there was one. Was really there?? plz say yes.

                                Shameless Kejri does not believe our Army. PM does not bother what stan and Kejri say. He believe in dong i.e walk to talk not like Kejri and PaK i.e F*ck the talk.

                                  BJP Ministers Must NOT Villify Opposition Leaders!!lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;●●Prime Minister Narendra Modi, top BJP ministers�Manohar Parrikar, Rajnath Singh, Venkaiah Naidu, Ravi Shankar Prasad, Uma Bharti, and ex-soldier and activist Anna Hazare are absolutely WRONG in QUESTIONING the PATRIOTISM of leaders of the Aam Aadmi Party, Congress and other opposition parties and dubbing them as TRAITORS, just because they had asked for PROOFS and DETAILS of the effectiveness of India's SURGICAL STRIKES on the TERRORIST CAMPS in stan near the LOC.�lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;●●In a DEMOCRACY, how can everyone be COMPELLED to blindly ACCEPT the version of�SURGICAL STRIKES,�as described by the BJP Government or the Army Chief General Dalbir Singh Suhag? Are we having a DICTATORSHIP in India?�Should we not know the TRUTH about the effects and results of the SURGICAL STRIKES by the Indian Armed Forces on the TERRORIST CAMPS near the LOC in stan?�lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;●●After any SURGICAL OPERATION, should we not find out whether the SURGEON has put the NOSE in place of the EAR, attached the EAR�in place of the LIPS over the mouth, put the LIPS�in place of an EYE, and fixed the EYE on the FOREHEAD?�Should we not find out whether the PATIENT has been turned into an UGLY MONSTER in the SURGICAL OPERATION by the DOCTOR?�lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;★★★Have the Indian leaders and PEOPLE got NO RIGHT to KNOW whether stan had been turned into a TERRIBLE MONSTER by the SURGICAL STRIKES, due to which some stani leaders had even THREATENED to use ATOMIC WEAPONS against India in a FUTURE WAR, which could KILL CRORES of PEOPLE?lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;★★★If the situation were not so serious, why had the American presidential candidate Hillary Clinton WARNED the W WORLD that some stani TERRORIST ORGANIZATION might send NUCLEAR SUICIDE BOMBERS to drop ATOMIC WEAPONS on India? So how can the TOP BJP ministers RIDICULE and CONDEMN the opposition leaders like Arvind Kejriwal, P.Chidambaram, Anand Sharma, Sanjay Nirupam, eep Singh Surjewala and others for DOUBTING the effectiveness and results of the SURGICAL STRIKES against stan?

                                        Congratulating somebody and Saluting are not the same thing. Arvind Kejriwal lauded Modi and of course had not saluted him. This word "salute" has been wrongly implanted by the media.
