Hitting out at the Prime Minister over the Uri terror attack that left 18 soldiers dead, the AAP today alleged Narendra Modi’s surprise Lahore stopover last December emboldened Pakistan and gave it “encouragement”.
The city ruling party said the BJP government has no business to be in office if it cannot safeguard the nation.
It also said the Centre should ensure the families of martyrs are not “humiliated” by giving them “paltry sum” as compensation.
“The sacrifices of our martyrs must not go in vain. Pakistan has been sponsoring terror in India and it should be held accountable for this dastardly act and given a fitting response,” AAP Delhi Convenor Dilip Pandey said.
He alleged “excessive encouragement” given to Pakistan by Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Lahore surprise stopover has emboldened to country.
In an unannounced stopover, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had landed in Lahore on his way back from Kabul in December.
AAP also held ‘shraddhanjali sabhas’ in all 70 Assembly constituencies to pay tributes to the fallen soldiers.
Pandey said before Modi became Prime Minister, he made statements saying he would take tough stance against terrorism and Pakistan’s involvement in such activities.
“But since he has assumed the office he is putting the nation’s security at risk by his overtures to woo Pakistan,” he alleged.
Pandey also attacked Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar who, he claimed, is forever occupied in Goa and has no time to monitor the country’s borders.
