“Congress ka pata nhi par Rahul ji se humare sambandh acche hain,unho ne kaha(khoon ki dalali) toh kuch soch ke hi kaha hoga (Not sure about Congress but I have good relations with Rahul Gandhi, and if he has used such words he must have thought thoroughly before saying so),” Akhilesh Yadav said, on Monday.

Yadav’s statement in support of the Congress vice-president comes at a time when Rahul Gandhi has drawn flak from the ruling party for his comments on the surgical strike conducted by the Indian Army.

While addressing a rally in Uttar Pradesh on October 6, Rahul had said,“Jo hamare jawan hai, jinhone apna khoon diya hai Jammu-Kashmir main jinhone Hindustan ke liye surgical strike kiya hai, unke khoon ke peeche aap chupe hue ho. Unki aap dalali kar rahe ho. Yeh bilkul galat hai (Our soldiers who have shed their blood in Jammu and Kashmir, who have conducted the surgical strikes, you are hiding behind their blood. You are cashing in on their sacrifice, that’s wrong).”

Rahul’s statements had come just days after he had praised PM Narendra Modi for the surgical strikes carried out by the Indian Army. The Indian Army on September 29 had conducted surgical strikes along the Line of Control destroying terror launchpads in Pakistan occupied Kashmir.

          In Indian psyche the stigma of princely states lie dormant over the democracy. England had only one queen or king to be worshipped. India had a diverse princely states many of the descendants are still in politics with their new gneration dynastic families like hi, Lalu-Mulayam Yadavas, Kalainger etc. They cannot think any democratically elected government fit enough to function above them. No ideology prevent them making a coalition based on power and show their solidarity against a national issue like surgical strike. How can two versions meet, one what PM states fake and army states is fact.

              Dalali has already started. Parrikar has got himself garlanded in Agra and Lucknow. Mind you no soldier has yet been felicitated by Modi or BJP. Tomorrow Modiji will do dalali in Lucknow.

                    These tao Guys, Akhilesh and Rahul, are the most inneficient sucessors of their already inneficient politically unfit fathers. Had Cong/UPA did any surgical strike ever before, why they kep mum for so long? Now they realised thst Modi and NDA has been recognised as a govt having some guts when it comes to the security of the nation, all of a sudden the Most Inneficient Def. Min of all times Mulayam now wanted to claim the credit for which he never had the nerve. Shame on you guys for demoralising the IndianArmed forces....

                      उत्तर प्रदेश में अखिलेश यादव और पप्पु समदु:खी है ! क्यों की अखिलेश यादव को पांच साल सत्ता में रहने के बाद भी अपनी जीत का भरोसा नहीं है ! समाजवादी पार्टी की सरकार का परफॉर्मन्स और उन के नेताओं के पीछले काल की करतुतें और उन के जहरीले बोल जनता ने ध्यान में रखे है ! वहा पर चल रहा गुंडाराज जनता से छिपा नहीं है और न ही युपी की सरकार से और ना ही मिडिया से ! पप्पु के बारे में तो क्या कहने? प्रशांत कुमार को सुपारी देने के बाद भी पप्पु अपने ही जाल में फंसता जा रहा है ! सर्जिकल स्ट्राईक पर उस के ताजा बयान से तो युपी खांग्रेस भी व्हेंटिलेटर पर गयी होगी ! इस बला को प्रचार में बुलाना इस का मतलब है हार की गारंटी ऐसा खांग्रेस के उम्मीदवार सोचते होंगे ! लेकिन क्या करें ! पार्टी का उपाध्यक्ष है भाई और कपिल सिब्बल द्वारा कहें, गांधी फॅमिली का बच्चा है भाई ! उसे कुछ अभी करने, कहने का लायसन्स है ! इस तरह दो फेल एक साथ आ जाना स्वाभाविक ही है !

                            Akhilesh should get worried "surgical strike" from his uncle. He is trying to crawl under babua's boot to form a united from for elections. SP and Congress are staring at certain defeat, the major danger is that Looney woman Mayawati.

                              Former DGMO has said that no surgical strikes were conducted before this strike. Indian army only crossed LoC about 50 meters. But Congi cronies will keep saying that Indian army officers are telling lies. Apart from Kejriwal and babua, no one politicised this attack.
