BJP leader Subramanian Swamy on Tuesday came out in support of Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar over his statement giving credit to “RSS teaching” for the decision to launch surgical strikes on terror camps inside PoK saying the Hindutva outfit provides training to take risks. Swamy said RSS indeed provides training to take risks and this helped while taking a call on launching the anti-terror operation on September 29. “The training of taking risks that RSS provides (helped in surgical strikes). (Prime Minister) Modi took risk (through surgical strikes),” he said.

Watch what else is making news:

Parrikar on Monday said “may be the RSS teaching was at the core” of the decision to launch cross-LoC raids. Swamy, a former Union Law Minister, also referred to a US operation in Iran in which all American soldiers were killed and said this contributed in then President Jimmy Carter losing election. The Rajya Sabha MP criticised Congress for seeking proof of surgical strikes. “It is not good for Congress to repeat Pakistan’s propaganda (by asking proof of surgical strikes).”

    Creeping fascism': What Subramanian Swamy had said about RSS in 2000. lt;br/gt;When Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his interview with Times Now said, "Vyavastha se upar kisi ko bolne ka haq nahi hai…" we all knew that the PM was referring to Subramanian Swamy and his obsession with the social media. (july 1 2016)lt;br/gt;This is what he is. As long as he gets what he wants.... he will be a loyal soldier otherwise..... ha ha ha

        Swamy, Kindly request you to stop this BS* and tomfoolery. Foreign Sec. Dr JaiShankar has made it very clear that such surgical strikes have been carried out in previous/past GOI tenures as well and only now it is made public. Perhaps your BJP/NDA govt has nothing to show its performance on any other front/domain and want to keep public occupied with something other than development (agenda/ like financial reforms benefiting middle cl,savers,retired people etc). What an hypocrisy for a party which has come to power on development agenda is now boasting,making public of what was kept erstwhile secret/under wraps military operations like surgical strikes etc! lt;br/gt;Now dont immediately try to p the buck by being arrogant or playing victim card that noone listens to your views on financial reforms or FM has different views etc. How long you would keep fooling people.people are watching this Govt performance esp on inflation,jobs,economic agenda..
