Modi should apologise for garnering vote on surgical strikes: Cong
Congress on Monday demanded that Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP chief Amit Shah apologise to the nation for their “vote garnering” exercise on surgical strikes calling it a “worst crime” and questioned the decision to “drastically” reduce the disability pension of the jawans.
Party’s chief spokesman Randeep Surjewala was also scathing in his criticism of the government for “failing to do justice” with both the farmers and the jawans.
He demanded withdrawl of the “Tughlaqi” order of “drastically reducing” the disability pension of the jawans and accused the government of not taking “effective” action on the one rank-one pension issue.
“Doing politics over the sacrifice and valour of the armed forces is the worst crime,” Surjewala told reporters.
