Defence Minister A K Antony Saturday hit back at BJP’s PM candidate Narendra Modi, saying his recent “AK” comment was against national interest.
“Is it proper on the part of a leader to go for cheap publicity by demoralising the forces who are guarding the boarders by risking their lives? I don’t think any true patriotic citizen would accept this statement, which would only help the enemy country,’’ said Antony.
Earlier this week, Modi had said in Jammu that three AKs — AK-47, A K Antony and AK-49 (Arvind Kejriwal) — had emerged as the strength of Pakistan.
“AK-47 was used by terrorists who shed Indian blood. The second is A K Antony, who makes a statement in Parliament that people who beheaded Indian soldiers were wearing Pak Army uniform while the Army said Pakistanis had come…and, the third AK is AK-49 who has just given birth to a new party,” Modi had said.
