Lucknow’s Aishbagh is preparing to welcome Prime Minister Narendra Modi who will be attending the Vijay Dashmi celebrations in the city’s iconic venue on Tuesday. Posters and banners have been put up near the venue days ahead of PM’s visit by his supporters and party volunteers.

‘Lucknow welcomes avengers of Uri’ reads one of the banners installed right outside the Aishbagh Ramleela Maidan with PM Modi and Rajnath Singh’s photo on it.

Apart from that, the banner also has popular dialogue from the movie ‘Ye Jawani hai Deewani’ saying “Yuva udna chahta hai, daudna chahta hai, girna bhi chahta hai par rukna nahi chahta” (the youth wants to fly, run and even fall but does not want to stop).

Watch what else is making news

The banner invoking Uri attacks and Indian army’s response to it by carrying out surgical strikes along LoC has also drawn criticism from the people on social media. Several twitter users were seen posting the pictures of the banner.

Opposition parties have accused BJP of using the army’s action against terrorist for political gains ahead of Uttar Pradesh elections.

Earlier on Monday, UP Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav also took a dig at PM Modi and said that he would have visited Bihar on Vijay Dashmi if the elections were scheduled to be held there. Uttar Pradesh will go into polls in 2017.

            Congress had openly tried to encash action against terrorist during U P election Salman Khurshid while campaigning in Azamgarh had said Sonia hi cried bitterly when she was shown Photographs of Batala house encounter. Congress showed open sympathy with terrorist to score in U P election and it also explains RAHUL outburst on killing of terrorist and annoyance of Digvijay for killing terrorist ji

                Please inform what is a surgical strike. The word has been used by the DGMO without giving any details. Without details I do not know whether it could be termed surgical or a plain strike or raid on stani forces.

                    there is some serious problem with BJP. three times they came in power, and three times there was unnecessary problems at border in 1999, 2002,and now. Similarly in fifth pay commission as well seventh pay commission they almost humiliated armed forces. but in taking credit and trying to win election in the name of armed forces they are way ahead

                          Since when showing support to jawans became showing support to BJP . Stop politicising the military and encashing on jawans sacrifices.

                              An impression is being created that only NAMO and Rajnathsingji lead the surgical operation of army against stan and not the Indian military.

                                It is definitely a sort of raid but its gravity reduces its effect from raid, as raid used to be a run over of the enemy's site. It is also not an ambush. Its strike on a spot of cancer. Just struck at the point where the terrorists were camped and the invading party returned to Base without any problem to the enemy army. This makes it different from an attack on enemy country.

                                  Army existed from the time PA-KI sponsored JI-HAD started in Kashmir but did not do a "surgical Strike". ..... So its Mr MODI who got the Army to do surgical strike and credit will go to him.
