BJP slams Kejriwal for 'surgical strike' comments

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal in a video message on Monday had praised the Narendra Modi government and the Indian Army for the surgical strikes. He had also said that the Pakistani government was spreading lies about the surgical strikes and had then asked the government to "unmask Pakistan's false propaganda like the way you (Modi) and the army taught Pakistan a lesson on the ground." BJP on Tuesday slammed Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal and Congress leader P Chidambaram for demanding proof on Army's surgical strikes across the Line of Control to destroy terror launch pads. "I want to ask Arvind Kejriwal whether he believes in the extraordinary valour of our Army or not in conducting surgical strikes," Union minister and BJP leader Ravi Shankar Prasad said in a press briefing. Prasad said Kejriwal is "now making headlines in Pakistan" for his doubts over Indian Army's operation in which 50 suspected terrorists were gunned down. "Kejriwal must not mix politics with national security," he said. Also he hit out at former Home Minister P Chidambaram, Prasad said: “Is he also joining the bandwagon of those doubting capacity of our soldiers in conducting the surgical strikes.”
