Supported PM Modi on surgical strikes, why is BJP so frustrated: Kejriwal
New Delhi (PTI) Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on 4 October responded to BJP’s attack saying he only backed the Centre for conducting surgical strike across the LoC and asked the BJP to not indulge in politics over a
sensitive matter. “If I say we are with the government in combating terrorism and government must give befitting reply to Pakistan’s false propaganda, why is BJP frustrated?” Kejriwal told the media. He added, “What did I say?
I only urged PM Modi to expose Pakistan’s propaganda, as they are claiming that surgical strike did not happen. In the video message I came forward to say we completely support PM Modi’s move on conducting surgical strikes and
I salute him for that. I am extremely upset at the response.” This is perhaps the first time that Kejriwal, who has been critical about the Modi government and its Pakistan policy, has come out praising him. On the day of the strikes, the Delhi Chief Minister had hailed the army, but there was no word of praise for Modi. A day later, he had told the Delhi Assembly that is time to stand with the
Centre and the differences between them can be sorted out later.
