New Delhi, October 7, 2016: While Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi attacked PM modi for trespassing moral grounds and using posters of armed forces for political mileage across the nation, the opposition has planned a counter attack to “khoon ki dalali” charge by Gandhi Scion on Modi on Friday.
BJP party president Amit Shah addressed media today. He accepted that some of the local BJP leaders were vocal about the surgical strikes but the party does not endorse politising surgical strikes. Covering up army posters felicitating Modi and Parrikar, Shah said these are means to take success of Army to people and not politising.
Earlier Rahul Gandhi tweeted that he supports surgical strikes and condemns how central government is using Indian Army in political posters to run a political propaganda all across the country.

Rahul Gandhi concluded his 26 days long Kisan Mahayatra from Deoria to Delhi yesterday at Sansad Marg while vehemently challenging Narendra Modi led central government for using face of Amry for gaining political mileage.
He said, the Indian Army has done its job for the country, you do yours. He attacked the center for misusing “sacrifices” of armed forces for “political purposes.”
He stormed against the PM Modi and questioned his moral for hiding behind blood and sacrifice of army and use it for political mileage.
He said: Jo hamare jawan hain jinhone apna khoon diya hai, Jammu and Kashmir mein khoon diya hai, jinhone Hindustan ke liye surgical strike kiye hain, unke khoon ke peeche aap chhupe hain. Unke khoon ki aap dalali kar rahe ho. Yeh bilkul galat hai”
Gandhi challenged Modi to stand for the rights of armed forces rather than play politics. He touched issues pending in Seventh Pay Commission recommendations for army.
He said: It is time you listened to the armed forces and gave them what they want as part of the Seventh Pay Commission.
Gandhi did not stop here but highlighted many strong points to brace up a fresh battle for the government. He said: Clean India, Make in India, Connect India all have failed.
He also said, Modi has been successfully able to practice only “divide India”. As a result, India has Jats versus non-Jats in Haryana, Patidars versus non-Patidars in Gujarat, Hindus versus Muslims in Uttar Pradesh.
He also touched upon upon key issues of farmers such as waiving off farmers’ loan, providing electricity at 50% price, providing better base price for crops and employment.
