Kejriwal publicising Pakistan’s point of view: Congress
New Delhi, Oct 3 (IANS) The Congress on Monday criticised Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for “publicising Pakistan’s point of view” over the surgical strikes carried out by Special Forces of the Indian Army and said that whatever he does on the issue should be “well thought”.
“All the political parties have supported Prime Minister Narendra Modi in this hour over the national security issue,” Delhi Congress spokesperson Sharmistha Mukherjee told IANS.
“If you go through the Twitter account of Kejriwal, he has retweeted some Pakistan’s media report which shows their claim,” she alleged.
“By retweeting Pakistan’s false propaganda he has actually given credence and publicity to Pakistan’s point of view,” Mukherjee added.
Congress leader’s remarks came after the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) convenor on Monday urged Modi to “expose the false propaganda” being spread by Islamabad on the issue.
Kejriwal also said that he salutes the Modi for taking strict measures against Pakistan despite having differences on other matters.
“Kejriwal being on very senior post and being a Chief Minister should refrain from such kind of actions,” the Congress leader said.
She also said: “Whatever action he does in this should be well thought out.”
“On one hand he is supporting Indian government and on other he is publicising Pakistan’s propaganda,” she added.
The special forces on late Wednesday night carried out surgical strikes in the Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (PoK) and destroyed seven terror launch pads.
