Senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal Friday launched a scathing attack on the government for “politicising” the Army’s surgical strikes along the Line of Control.

“Those who have murder cases against them, have been to jail, are in no position to question Rahul Gandhi,” said Sibal in a reference to BJP president Amit Shah, who had earlier criticised the Congress for associating itself with the disappointment of Pakistan. The statement is a continuation of the war of words between the two national parties over the Army’s surgical strikes.

 

Upping the offensive further, the Congress leader said the relations between India and Pakistan wouldn’t have been so strained if the BJP during its time in the government hadn’t released the Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) chief Masood Azhar. “Who created JeM? BJP did,” he said.

On Thursday, Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi said Prime Minister Narendra Modi was ‘hiding behind the blood of jawans’ and doing ‘dalali’ (cashing in) on their sacrifice.

Sibal said the government is undermining the valor of armed forces by giving PM Modi all credit.

 

“Stop putting up these posters claiming credit, it was Army who should be hailed so stop this politics,” he said. Sibal further said Shah’s comment that even though he doesn’t agree with taking political mileage of the surgical strikes, they will “take the success of the country’s army to the people” is contradictory.

Sibal also gave a detailed account of all the previous instances when the security forces had crossed the Line of Control to defend the nation. “India’s history doesn’t start from 2014,” he said. It was a response to Shah’s claim that the Indian Army has crossed the border for the first time.

    It means either Modi's writ doesn't run,or he wants to play politics over the dead soldiers.Either way it's a shame on him.Have some semblance of respect for the souls of the departed soldiers and the living soldiers who are on guard at the borders.As mark of respect of the families who sons are on the borders,Amit Shah and others need to keep their mouths shut,the jawans know how corrupt the politicians of this country are.You will ask votes in their name and escalate tension on the borders and make money in kickback in arms purchases.You are a crooked fellow- the politicians!!
