Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Saturday returned PM Modi’s ‘video game’ jibe, saying the Indian Army was not his personal property.
“Army is not a personal property of PM Modi. Surgical Strikes are done by the Armed Forces. When Modi says Surgical strikes during Congress government were “video games”, he doesn’t insult Congress, he insults the army,” Rahul said.
Rahul further said, “Terrorism has to be dealt with sternly. We deal with it more sternly than Narendra Modi. We do it with strategy unlike Modi who does it in events.”
Rahul also took a swipe at the BJP on the release of Pakistan-based terrorist Masood Azhar back in 1999.
“Action should be taken against Masood Azhar, but who sent him back to Pakistan? Did Congress send him to Pakistan? Who bowed down to terror and released him? Not the Congress, but it was the BJP Govt,” Rahul said.
Rahul further said, “I don’t see a strategic campaign by the BJP. I see a scared Prime Minister unable to face the onslaught of the opposition and who is absolutely convinced in his mind that he is trapped. It is a panicky campaign,” adding to it he said, “the process is going on in Supreme Court and I apologized to Supreme Court as I felt I did mistake but I did not apologize to BJP or Modi. ‘Chowkidar Chor hai’ is a reality and will remain our slogan.”
