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
