Prime Minister Narendra Modi today strongly rebutted opposition leaders’ soft attitude towards Pakistan-based terror groups and unleashed a barrage of tweets cornering those who `demean India’s armed forces and humiliate families of martyrs’. He accused that the opposition is the natural habitat of terror apologists and questioners of our armed forces.
Taking strong exception towards Indian Overseas Congress Chief Sam Pitroda’s remarks over the ongoing tense India and Pakistan relations, due to the Pulwama terror attack and the subsequent military standoffs, the Prime Minister said, “The most trusted advisor and guide of the Congress President has kick-started the Pakistan National Day celebrations on behalf of the Congress, ironically by demeaning India’s armed forces. Shame!”
Earlier in the day, Sam Pitroda reasoned, “Eight people (26/11 terrorists) come and do something, you don’t jump on entire nation (Pakistan). Naive to assume that just because some people came and attacked, every citizen of that nation is to be blamed. I don’t believe in that way.”
Prime Minister pulled the erstwhile Congress-led UPA government of inaction in face of terror strikes in Mumbai in 2008. Strengthening his attack on the Opposition, the Prime Minister also traded barbs at Samajwadi Party leader Ram Gopal Yadav, who had slamed the government for ignoring the plight of paramilitary forces.
Further on in an appeal to citizens, Prime Minister Narendra Modi asked everyone to question the intentions of the Opposition and tell them that “130 crore Indians will not forgive them for their antics… India stands firmly with our forces.”
