Pawar, however, said that similar strikes were conducted during his term as Defence Minister.

AT A time when the Congress and the Aam Aadmi Party have sought evidence of the Army’s surgical strikes on terror launch pads along the LoC, NCP chief Sharad Pawar Thursday came out in support of the government.

“The situation demanded that some action was needed to be taken to teach a lesson to the enemies, which was taken. We should all support it. It is irresponsible and irrational to demand evidence of the same. It is not advisable to do that,” Pawar told reporters.

Pawar, however, said that similar strikes were conducted during his term as Defence Minister. “I didn’t mention about it then. I think the Defence Minister is one person who must speak very briefly,” he said.

          And you are bigger cowards to not ask to see the truth, because you lack the courage to face the truth, and find it easier to look away and pretend the truth does not matter

            Every criminal in history, as the noose tightened around his neck, appealed to the Patriotism of the mes to look the other way. then to their rationality, then too their sympathy, till the final gurgle as their legs kicked in the empty air. Go on ask them to give you evidence of your greatness, You know it in your heart their is none, your cowards never left the barracks

              That in itself is the quintessential meaning of your existence, a visage so ugly you dare not look in the mirror and satisfy yourself with the thought, that if you did, you would be beautiful. You are not, turn and face the mirror if you dare

                Sharad Pawar and Salman Kurshid were facilitators for fleeing of Dawood and company from India. While Pawar knew the activities of D company, Kurshid facilitated issue of pports to some family members off this gang. Now they are trying to issue sermons. Shame on them.

                      Sharad Pawar is the most corrupt politician after Laloo yadav. Why would anyone listen to these two buffoons.lt;br/gt;I think Congress and Kejriwal want to be ured that it was not rigged.lt;br/gt;All that the NDA has to do is for the service chiefs to give a statement

                            all those 'surgical strikes' carried out under UPA rule are commendable. the only difference is that this strike on the POK soil created a tsunami across the globe, isolating the 'land of the pure' completely.
