Congress leader Gurudas Kamat has said the BJP may try to milk political advantage out of the Army’s surgical strikes in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir by calling for mid-term polls in multiple states, and asked party workers in Bikaner to be prepared for all eventualities.
Addressing Congress workers at a state-level programme in Bikaner of Friday, Kamat alleged that Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the BJP are taking “unwarranted” credit for the Army action, in the poll-bound state of Uttar Pradesh.
He said mid-term elections in some states are possible as the government was intent on taking advantage of the strikes and told party workers to be prepared for them.

The Congress leader said that such military action happened during the UPA rule as well, but the then government did not seek to take credit.
PCC President Sachin Pilot said the Congress was not fighting against any individual, but rather against an ideology.
“We have concerns for farmers and people as a whole. We have to defeat communal forces,” he said.
