New Dehli’s chief minister Arvind Kejriwal has urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi in a new video to expose “Pakistan’s false propaganda” about the surgical strikes that were conducted by the army across the Line of Control last week.
Kejriwal ask the government to release footage of the strikes which were conducted on seven terrorist launch pads or staging areas in Pakistan-Occupied Kashmir. Claiming that foreign media, appears to be backing Pakistan’s claim, he says, “My blood boils to see such reports”.
“The PM knows how to answer Pakistan. Kejriwal should worry about freeing Delhi of dengue and chikungunya, instead of giving advice to the PM,” said a caustic BJP spokesperson, RP Singh.
Pakistan has denied that the strikes took place and accused India of passing off cross border firing as raids conducted across the de facto border. Kejriwal has stopped short of asking the government to release footage of the strikes which were conducted on seven terrorist launch pads or staging areas. Claiming that foreign media appears to be backing Pakistan’s claim, he said that his blood boiled to see such reports.
A habitual critic of Modi, the 46-year-old chief minister stressed in the nearly three- minute-long video that he might have 100 differences with the PM, but saluted him for his approach towards Pakistan.
