On a day The Indian Express carried details of the surgical strikes on terror launch pads in PoK, the BJP targeted Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for keeping silent.
BJP national secretary Shrikant Sharma said, “We are surprised as well as shocked at his silence at the two different media reports that have surfaced today giving details about the surgical strikes. The Indian Express and CNN News18 have shown conclusive evidence of the surgical strikes. Arvind Kejriwal is conspicuously silent today. We are still wondering what could be the reason?”
Sharma said it was “unfortunate how he (Kejriwal) fell victim to propaganda of Pakistani media”.
Kejriwal had sought release of proof of the strikes, saying Pakistan was shaming India internationally by questioning the authenticity of the strike.
Sharma said, “Does his silence mean that he trusts Pakistani media over Indian media? Does his silence mean that he does not believe that the surgical strikes happened? Does his silence mean that he still does not trust the Indian Army?”
