Opposition parties slam PM for political campaign


Amid the rising tension between India and Pakistan, Prime Minister Narendra Modi was criticized by the opposition as well as by the netizens for holding campaign rallies. Along with the PM, his party was also trolled online after the party tweeted about the Prime Minister’s programme hours after Pakistan captured the IAF wing commander Abhinandan.

“It is shameful that while India awaits the return of Wing Commander Abhinandan, our Prime Time PM cannot stop campaigning even for a few minutes,” the Congress tweeted.

“Even when our pilot is missing, everything — even national security — is seen through the lens of public relations and votes. The BJP only knows the politics of distraction, lies, branding and marketing. Those who worship power will only be consumed by it. #BringHimHome,” tweeted Akhilesh Yadav, who was also vocal against BJP’s political campaign.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had requested PM Modi to reschedule his campaign, “I wud urge the PM to postpone this. At this moment, we as a nation, need to spend all our energies and time to get the IAF pilot back safely andto sternly deal wid Pak.” Kejriwal has postponed his hunger-strike to push his statehood demand.
