The row over surgical strike has already turned ugly by each passing day ever since it has happened in the intervening night of September 28 and 29 when the special forces of the Indian army crossed the Line of Control (LoC). The opposition in the political arena have made demands of making the video of the surgical strikes public which has mooted substantial public anger.
Sanjay Nirupam, city president of Congress Mumbai have been in the limelight in the past week for making demands from the government to make the video of the strike public. In return he has been trolled quite heavily in the social media.
Things became out of hand when his family started receiving threat calls from anonymous callers threatning with dire consequences. As a result of this, Nirupam’s wife Geeta wrote a letter to none other than Prime Minister (PM) Narendra Modi expressing serious concerns about the safety of her family.
Geeta also mentioned that she has been receiving vulgar and abusive calls all throughout the week and that the callers have not even spared Sanjay’s 80 year old mother. Drawing analogy with Kiran Rao’s earlier comment of feeling unsafe in the country Geeta wrote,’yes I feel unsafe in my own country’.
