After Indian army conducted the surgical strike, many questions raised about its credibility and it created a serious debate in India.
Opposition parties and Congress demanded proofs which tensed the Modi government. Sanjay Neerupam, the Congress head in Mumbai said the strikes are “fake” and he demanded evidences to proof it.
P. Chidambaram, the former home minister alleged that the demand was expected as the government made it public.
Also the Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala stated that the government should made the evidence public. He said “We would like to urge the PM to stop politicizing the bravery of Indian soldiers for myopic political gain.”
Digvijaya Singh, the Congress General Secretary was demanding the same, said to release the video footages as soon as possible. In a tweet, “Our credibility is at stake Modiji/(national security adviser Ajit) Dovalji. Release video footage immediately.”
The Punjab Congress head, Amarinder Singh said that BJP is using the strikes as their political gain. He asked if the government are heading for war with Pakistan as they evacuated the villages forcibly.
Another Congress leader and former Delhi CM Sheila Dikshit sent a letter to Manmohan Singh and asked him to aware the people to know the details of surgical strikes during his time.
But BJP’s Ravi Shankar Prasad condemned the opposition and said whether the opposition Congress has any doubt on Indian army’s skills and bravery.
Another BJP minister Uma Bharti said those who demanded proofs and questioned on the surgical strikes they should take “citizenship” of Pakistan.
However, Arvind Kejriwal also demanded proofs and for that he came under ink attack. Media reports said that the two accused of ink attack were arrested.
After the ink attack he tweeted, “God bless those who threw ink at me.” Defending himself he later gave the clarification, “I’m not saying you release all video footage, I don’t think so either… as it may not be in the interest of national security… but there is a need to show some proof.”
Meanwhile. The Indian army gave the green signal to the government to use the video of the surgical strikes as a proof to confirm that.
According to CNN-News18, the BJP leaders asserted that the video will be out soon.
