Watch: Rahul attacks Modi over surgical strikes, Kejriwal attacks Rahul over his comments

Condemning Rahul Gandhi's remarks, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal in a conversation with ANI said that this is a time to support PM Modi and not indulge in poltics.

Sanjay Nirupam, rahul gandhi -L Rahul while addressing a rally in Delhi said, “Jo hamare jawan hain jinhone apna khoon diya hai, Jammu and Kashmir mein khoon diya hai, jinhone Hindustan ke liye surgical strike kiye hain, unke khoon ke peeche aap chhupe hain. Unki aap dalali kar rahe ho. Yeh bilkul galat hai.”

Little did Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi know that his attempt to criticize Prime Minister Narendra Modi would backfire him to this extent. Marking the culmination of his month-long ‘Deoria to Delhi kisan yatra,’ Rahul while addressing a rally in Delhi said, “Jo hamare jawan hain jinhone apna khoon diya hai, Jammu and Kashmir mein khoon diya hai, jinhone Hindustan ke liye surgical strike kiye hain, unke khoon ke peeche aap chhupe hain. Unki aap dalali kar rahe ho. Yeh bilkul galat hai. (You (Modi) are hiding behind the blood of soldiers in Jammu and Kashmir and those who carried out the surgical strikes for India. You are exploiting their sacrifices, which is very wrong).”

Condemning these remarks, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal in a conversation with ANI said the following:

Our soldiers bravely launched surgical strikes across the LoC. I have congratulated them for it before and will do so again. However, Rahul Gandhi’s recent remarks dubbing the bravery of the Army as khoon ki dalali was not appropriate of him.

I condemn such usage of words and such statements. I have reiterated that quite a number of times, that we need to keep our political differences aside and support the Indian Army in this moment. Our Prime Minister is taking certain steps to ensure the security of India and all political parties ought to support him in this.

I believe that we shouldn’t be playing politics over this issue.

Rahul also added, “the Indian army has done its job for the country, you do yours.”

Hitting out at Rahul Gandhi over his “dalali” barb, BJP National Secretary Shrikant Sharma said, “It is most shameful. Such remarks reflect his mental bankruptcy. The army and the Prime Minister are getting praise from everywhere for the surgical strikes. Modi is being praised for his decision and he is unable to digest it. Rahul Gandhi is in frustration.”

Referring to controversial comments of some Congress leaders including Sanjay Nirupam, Sharma said the Opposition party is confused as they had been attacking Modi after Pathankot and Uri terror attacks and do not know how to react after he ordered the surgical strikes.

    I am sorry to say, I m going to harsh in my words. This is the time to unite from all sides of the country and support our prime minister on his action for our safety. Honourable Prime Minister Mr. Narender Modi is a symbol of action and hard work. He is praised by world and his action, feels scared to our enemies. Mr. Rahul hi has forget or don't wants remember these and he is in only his personal party profit, shame shame on his thinking and also shame on his party's people support. My dear country people, please get up together against our enemy and face the problems. It is the for action, not "POLITICS". Jai hind, jai Bharat, jai jawan, jai kishan........

          Kuch bhi bolta hai ye. Ab bura to lagega hi. Entire world is praising the action taken by the responsible PM for the first time concerning the national security. Ab iski party ka PM to sonia hi se puch ke hi saans leta tha. His comments show the level of education he has received.

            And kejriwal attacks raga for his comments and wants us to believe that his(ksjri's) own filthy comments about the Hon. PM are pure english/hindi/urdu literature. Pot calling the kettle black.

              Rahul is right. BJP leaders like Parrikar have already themselves felicitated in Agra and Lucknow. And are asking for votes in lieu for the blood spilled by our jawans.

                      After all Rahul is heading a party which has along all eitherbeen indulging in Dalali or taking their cut from those who were indulging in Dalali like in CWG,Telecom,Air India ghotala,Coal,Submarine ,Helicopter and many others and now since his party is out of power and unable to indulge in Dalali any more which was the bread and butter of Congress ,his frustration makes him to use such words which his party specialises in .
