Rahul Gandhi –during the course of yatra in UP, accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of hiding behind the blood of the soldiers and doing ‘dalali’ over their sacrifice.
Addressing a press conference in the capital, Amit Shah condemned the politics over surgical strikes, saying the Congress vice-president crossed all the limits. “Some parties tried to question the surgical strikes, some even raised doubts. I condemn all those who have insulted our Indian Armed Forces. People who want to have a proof should go and take analysis of what is happening in Pakistan, they will learn a lot” Mr Shah lambasted.
Lashing out at the Congress vice-president for his ‘dalali’ remark for PM Modi, Shah said, “Is dalali a word to refer Indian army and their efforts to save the country?” Shah also hit out at the Congress party for associating itself with the disappointment of Pakistan not the happiness of India.
Chief Minister of New Delhi Arvind Kejriwal came down heavily on Rahul Gandhi over his ‘dalali’ remarks on surgical strikes and urged political parties to cast aside their differences and rally behind the Prime Minister. “I condemn the use of such words. I have told in the House as well as in a video message that right now there is tension at the border. The entire country should stand behind the army keeping aside political differences and support the Prime Minister’s steps pertaining to security. There should not be any politics over this issue,” Mr. Kejriwal said.
“Our soldiers valiantly carried out surgical strikes and demolished terror addresses. I have previously done so and want to congratulate the army once again for this. I strongly criticise Rahul Gandhi’s remarks wherein he said army’s sacrifices and bravery was ‘khoon ki dalali’
