Chandigarh: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), Punjab Convener, Gurpreet Singh Waraich (Ghuggi) has sought immediate apology from Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar and BJP National spokesperson GVL Narasimha Rao for belittling the Indian army by claiming in the media that it was the BJP led government at the centre after which the Indian defence forces have woken up to the Pakistan attack.
Waraich said by claiming that the Indian army has woken out of slumber only after the BJP led government came to the centre in 2014 was indeed an insult to the defence forces of the country which has such a glorious past.
“Right from the year 1948 to 1962, 1965, 1971 more recently in 1999 during the Kargil operation the Indian defence forces have displayed exemplary valour and sacrifice for the nation. Even during the last few years the Indian armed forces successfully led nearly 9 to 10 surgical strikes into the Pakistan territory to defeat their nefarious design against India”, said Waraich.
Such statements by the Defence Minister and by the BJP spokesperson not only belittle the Indian armed forces but also inflicted insult to their glorious past for which the duo should immediately tender an unconditional apology.
“All along we have been saying the same thing that the BJP led centre government must come forward to counter the false propaganda unleashed by Pakistan on the international forum. We as a party not even once sought proof or any evidence of the surgical strike as being spread by the BJP all across the country’, said Waraich.
Waraich said AAP right from the beginning has been saluting Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his daring act against Pakistan. “ AAP was the first party which passed a resolution in Delhi assembly hailing PM Modi and the surgical strikes for teaching Pakistan a lesson. We never tried to politicize the issue as being propagated by the BJP spokespersons”.
On the other hand it is Parrikar who is going from Goa to Uttar Pradesh to get honoured by his own party workers which is nothing but politicizing the entire issue. The BJP is even putting up banners and posters all over the country to take credit for the surgical strikes which is nothing but sheer politicization of the situation, added Waraich.
