In the wake of Pakistan casting doubts on last week’s surgical strikes across the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to “expose the false propaganda” being spread by Islamabad on the issue.
He also said that he salutes the Prime Minister for taking strict measures against Pakistan in spite of having differences on other matters.
“Recently they (Pakistan) took a delegation of international media to Pakistan and told them that there was no surgical strike at all by the Indian forces. They are spreading a false propaganda. Modiji should expose the false propaganda of Pakistan,” said Kejriwal in a video message.
He said that Pakistan is trying to scuttle the credibility of India in the international arena and indulging in cheap politics.
He also mentioned a brief United Nations gave two days back which reportedly supported Pakistan’s claim that no strike happened.
“Only yesterday CNN was showing a report that how Pakistan took few mediapersons to the spot of strike to show that no such thing happened, and showed them kids playing and people living as usual. My blood came to a boil when I saw that report,” he said.
“We fully support the PM on surgical strikes. Urge him to similarly counter Pakistan’s dirty propaganda. I salute Prime Minister Narendra Modi-ji.”
Last week, India said it had launched surgical strikes on terrorist launch pads across the LoC in the wake of the Uri terror attack. Pakistan has said it was only a case of cross-border firing, and has been running news reports casting doubts on the operations.
