NEW DELHI: Indian opposition parties have started questioning the BJP led government’s claim of surgical strike in Azad Kashmir. The opposition parties have demanded the government to give proof of its claim because Pakistan has been categorically denying that no surgical strike has taken.
Reports in the Indian media said that highly upset over the opposition demands and questions being raised about surgical strike, the BJP has sought to corner opposition parties over the unending political slugfest over the surgical strikes as the party eyes gains in the forthcoming assembly polls in five states by projecting PM Narendra Modi as a strong leader.
BJP is now putting the responsibility of the surgical strike claim on the armed forces saying it was the director general of military operations who announced that surgical strikes were carried out across the Line of Control. However, the opposition continues to accuse BJP of seeking political mileage out of the operation.
