Congress Leader Sanjay Nirupam Calls Surgical Strikes Against Pakistan ‘Fake’

Known for making controversial statements, Congress leader Sanjay Nirupam on Tuesday questioned the authenticity of the government’s claim of carrying out surgical strikes against terror launch pads along the line of control in Pakistan.

Nirupam said while everyone wants Army to conduct surgical strike, it should not be a fake one. “Every Indian wants #SurgicalStrikesAgainstPak but not a fake one to extract just political benefit by #BJP. Politics over national interest,” tweeted Nirupam along with the posters of BJP in Uttar Pradesh.
