Days after Sanjay Nirupam called fake the surgical strikes by Indian Army in the Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (POK), Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on Thursday accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of pandering blood of jawans.  Gandhi’s comment may trigger a major controversy as his party has supported the government over surgical strikes.

“Humare jawan hain jinho ne khoon diya hai,jinho ne surgical strike kiya, unke khoon ke peeche aap(PM) chhupe huye ho. Unki(jawans) aap(PM) dalali kar rahe ho. (Our jawans who sacrificed their lives, who did surgical strikes, you are hiding behind them. Pandering their blood),” said Gandhi.

His attack comes a few days after he had praised Modi for his first Prime Minister-like action in two years in the context of surgical strikes.

Gandhi was addressing a rally here, marking the culmination of his month-long ‘Deoria to Delhi kisan yatra’ in poll-bound Uttar Pradesh. “The Indian army has done its job for the country, you do yours,” the Congress Vice President said, attacking Modi.

He also accused Modi of making false promises to the people of the country. “Modi ji promised bank accounts to everyone, but there is no money in those accounts. All his promises were fake,” said Gandhi.

Lashing out at Modi government, he said only the Prime Minister and his friends were “happy” as money has come into the pockets of 15 top businessmen and not the farmers, labour and small shopkeepers.

Eyewitnesses Account of Surgical Strikes

“Modiji had said he has a 56-inch chest and will fight out corruption, but he instead brought out a ‘Fair and Lovely scheme’ for turning the blackmoney of the country’s thieves into white.

“The money has not come into the pockets of farmers, labour and small shopkeepers, but went into those of 15 top businessmen. Only Modiji and his friends are happy,” he said.
