Shimla, March 7: Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Thursday said that it’s sad that when the opposition was standing with Govt, Prime Minister Narendra Modi was politicising it.
“When Pulwama happened and action was ongoing with Pakistan, I held a Press Conference and said that Congress and all its leader and workers are standing with Indian Air Force and Government”, Gandhi told a rally in Himachal’s Kangra.
“We made it clear we’ll not politicise it but it’s sad that when the opposition was standing with Govt, PM was politicising it”.
The Congress Chief also vowed to give martyr status to CRPF, BSF men dying in line of duty.
“It’s sad when someone from paramilitaries is martyred they don’t get status of a martyr. It shouldn’t be that only CRPF or BSF aren’t given the status.When our Govt comes,if a personnel is martyred in line of duty, he’ll get status of a martyr”.
