Cong accuses BJP of politically exploiting soldiers, After Rahul Gandhi’s ‘dalali’ remark

On Monday, Congress accused BJP of politically exploiting farmers and soldiers, after Rahul Gandhi’s ‘Dalali’ remark.

He also sought-after assurance that BJP won’t try to make political gains out of army’s actions. PM Narendra Modi should apologise for using the sacrifices of army to portray himself as Lord Ram in BJP’s posters and speeches, AICC spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said.

The Defence minister was busy attending felicitation ceremonies from agra to Goa for drawing political mileage from strikes. Raising the criticism, Congress said while the bodies of the soldiers were still being wrapped in tricolour.

Surjewala said, “Indian army didn’t know its valour and strength until Modi government ordered surgical strikes, Manohar Parrikar had said.”

“It exposes the lies of BJP and defence minister,” Surjewala said media reports have made public the surgical strike carried out during Operation Ginger in 2011 under UPA.

Modi regime had slashed the disability pension of the military by up to Rs 70,000, He also said that.
