After the video proof of Surgical strike is out, the Congress party instead of apologizing to the nation has again started targeting BJP. The Congress party, which for long had been asking for the proof of surgical strike now has started launching attacks on the BJP when the video is out. Congress blamed BJP of using the sacrifice of soldiers to garner votes.
The party leader Randeep Surjewala while interacting with media on Thursday accused BJP of “shamelessly” using the surgical strikes for their benefit during the assembly election in Uttar Pradesh. He further went on to defame PM Modi Government and said “Prime Minister Modi’s government is exploiting the slogan of ‘Jai Jawan Jai Kisan’ and trying to win votes using Surgical Strikes. The nation wants to ask them did Atal Bihari Vajpayee and Manmohan Singh boast of the success of Army operations during their tenure, just like them?”
The Congress leader also said the ruling party cannot make the “sacrifice of the army a tool to garner votes for themselves.” He went ahead to target BJP said BJP is glorifying the prime minister for surgical strikes, which was actually carried out by the Indian Army.
Upon seeing the response of Congress party, Rajya Sabha MP and BJP leader Subramanian Swamy slapped the party quite hard. The senior leader questioned the grand old party’s claim asking how a video can move the wave in the favour of BJP. He also said that if Congress party has done any surgical strike during their tenure then why don’t they show it? The senior leader said “Just because they (Congress) cannot produce such videos, because there is none, we also shouldn’t do it? How is this exploiting people’s sentiment in BJP’s favour? If you did it, why did you hide it?” “It’s just like the old saying ‘grapes are sour’,” he added.
It is a shame for Congress party who first just to attack the BJP, insulted the army of nation by asking the proof of the surgical strike and now when it is out they are again targetting BJP that BJP is doing all this for garnering the votes. Infact Congress itself has always politicized everything according to their own selfish motives. The party stoop such low always and show their real face by doing such shameless acts.
