Answer questions posed by Kargil hero’s mother: AAP to Modi

Answer questions posed by Kargil hero’s mother: AAP to Modi
Modi’s reference to the Captain Batra in an election speech in Himachal Pradesh on Tuesday, has disturbed his family. The martyr’s mother, Kamal Kant Batra is the AAP candidate from the Hamirpur parliamentary constituency of Himachal Pradesh.

Since Modi invoked Batra’s name purely with an intention to increase his electoral prospects, he should now respond to the family’s concern on why he never found time to visit the family, asked AAP in a statement. AAP candidate Kamal Kant Batra has rightly pointed out that Modi was the BJP incharge of Himachal Pradesh when the Kargil war took place in 1999 and despite having visited Palampur, the martyr’s hometown, Modi did not get time to visit his home.

The BJP leader should not try to invoke the names of those who laid down their lives for the country in such a casual manner, particularly when he and his party did nothing to respect the martyrdom.

The AAP also condemns the statement of BJP spokesperson Meenakshi Lekhi, who has commented on the late Captain Batra’s family without knowing the facts about the entire issue. It is shocking that a spokesperson of a national party chose to comment on political lines, without showing any respect for the family which lost a young son for the nation’s cause.

The ongoing election campaign has seen the BJP and Congress indulge in mudslinging to divert the attention of the people from real issues, but attempts to belittle the sacrifice of those who gave up their lives for the sake of the country in their prime youth.
