Union Minister and Punjab BJP chief Vijay Sampla on Monday said that “Congress is unable to digest the brave decisions made by the Modi government” and criticised Rahul Gandhi for his ‘dalali’ remarks on army’s surgical strikes on terrorist launch pads across the LoC.
He said, “The Congress is unable to digest the brave decisions made by the Modi government, which is why Rahul Gandhi is pointing fingers at the BJP rather than looking into Congress’ past”.
Attacking the Prime Minister, Gandhi had told a rally in Delhi, “Jinhone Hindustan ke liye surgical strike kiye hain, unke khoon ke peeche aap chhupe hain. Unki aap dalali kar rahe ho. Yeh bilkul galat hai. You (Modi) are hiding behind the blood of soldiers in Jammu and Kashmir and those who carried out the surgical strikes for India. You are exploiting their sacrifices, which is very wrong.”
Congress has blood on its hands and everyone is aware of the Sikh massacre in Delhi and other parts of the country, Sampla said while reiterating that politics is just a medium of social service for the BJP. He said that during its two-and-a-half years rule, the Modi government at the Centre has achieved those goals which the successive Congress governments have failed to accomplish in 60 years.
Lauding the army for conducting surgical strikes, he said, “Army and PM Modi deserve applause for giving a befitting reply to Pakistan and the nation is proud of this action. I hope that Pakistan learns a lesson from this military operation and dare not repeat such mistakes.”
“Punjab is a border state and thousands of brave jawans from Punjab are serving in the Indian Army. There are lakhs of Punjabi youths who want to join the Army”, he said.
