BJP leader and Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad on Tuesday slammed Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Congress leader P Chidambaram for their remarks on the surgical strikes against terror launch pads along the line of control in Pakistan.

In reference to Kejriwal’s video – which was released on Monday seeking proof from Central government regarding the surgical strikes – Prasad said that Kejriwal was ‘making headlines in Pakistan’. “Does Kejriwal believe in valour of our Army or not?,” Prasad said.

 

He also questioned if the Delhi CM believed in the Indian Army then ‘why was he getting influenced by propaganda of Pakistan’. Praising Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Kejriwal had urged the government to “unmask the false propaganda of Pakistan” and quell the “lies” being told to the international media.

Also training his guns at former Home Minister P Chidambaram, Prasad said: “Is he also joining the bandwagon of those doubting capacity of our soldiers in conducting the surgical strikes.”

 

Prasad comments come in response to Chidambaram’s statement that Central government led by Congress had also carried out same operations in the past but did not make it public.

The Indian Armed Forces had launched ‘surgical strikes’ along the LoC on eight terrorist launch pads operating in PoK on September 28. Pakistan denied any such operation and said that only two of its soldiers were killed in the cross-border firing that took place during the night.

            Kajriwal what proof you are asking for the so called surgical strike. World says that India doesn't have the capacity of surgical strike. Still you demand evidence and are making fun of India. Don't you know how much embracement Modi has brought this country

                      Just bcoz one holds a different opinion does not make him a stooge of someone. There should be some sanity while expressing views. What if some one calls u a Kerrial or a Congress stooge. The fact of the matter is that certain operational details is better kept within the domain og the army on a need to know basis Whether it is bjps chest thumping or other parties belated realisation of the political advantage to bjp and hence the clamour for.proof is a political drama that will play out till the impending elections in certain places. Citizens should not be flustered and join this bandwagon of tu tu main main between the politicalb parties Our only duty is to support the army,without any reservation, in its efforts to hold our flag and prestige high. Leave alone the politicians and their petty electoral sound bytes.

                          Indian army are not fools to publicise the surgical strike to reveal the methods and tactics they used to carry out the strike,---thus PORKISTAN are trying their very best to condem the strikes by inviting international media to fool and justify their own porkistanis so that India indirectly gets provoked and releases the strike footage,---India will keep porky armies guessing until the next surgical strike which will cripple poky armies and put them in a non surgical state.

                                        If the purpose of surgical strikes was served ..then what was the need to announce to the w world..when people are now asking for proof..BJP says its secret information and should not be leaked....Its illogical..lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;If BJP did not want to show proof to anybody..they should not have announced about it.
