The Congress had yesterday asked the government to put forth “credible” evidence of last week’s surgical strikes, carried out by the Army across the LoC, to “expose” Pakistan which has denied any such action.

Congress senior spokesman Anand Sharma had also sought to dismiss the claim that the surgical strikes on terrorist launch pads was the first such retaliation by the Indian Army, insisting that it had responded earlier too “as per the need or provocation”.

 

Mumbai Congress chief Sanjay Nirupam today raised doubt over the veracity of the Army’s surgical strikes suggesting it was “fake”, even as he accused BJP of indulging in politics over national interest.

“Every Indian wants surgical strikes against Pakistan but not a fake one to extract just political benefit by BJP. politics over national interest(sic),” Nirupam tweeted.

He also said it is upto the government to prove that the surgical strikes did take place.

              it is terrible to hear political leaders seeking proof on a statement given by the DGMO of the Indian Army on an operation, just for scoring political points. Why are you denigrating your army to play your political games. you are scared that the ruling party will derive political benefit out of the historical shift in the nations approach to terrorist attacks.. and to do that you have no qualms in doubting your army. If I was in uniform, I would have thrown my uniform on your face so that from now you can guard the border giving proof of everything you do. you have insulted the armed forces. you expect an army being insulted by its own 'political cl' to remain motivated? How low will you stoop? we the citizens probably deserve all this pain because we have elected some of these people - its also a fact that that many of them have no 'consuencies' and are paid agents. the army ethos are so strong that the indian army will not make an incorrect statement even if the government asks it to do so - because if it does that the military leaders will never be able to face the troops thereafter. for you the votes come first, the country's interest of no concern. whichever party be in power, your aim is to show them in poor light. you do what you want. but please do not use the army to play your game.

                  If you are the world largest democracy then why you are not transparent. Show the proof to your own people - Where is the beef?
