Prime Minister Narendra Modi tore into Congress leader Sam Pitroda, a close aide of Rahul Gandhi, over his comments questioning the impact of the Balakot air strike. The opposition “is the natural habitat of terror apologists” and “insults our forces time and again”, the Prime Minister tweeted.
Speaking to news agency ANI, Pitroda said that the Congress-led UPA could have “sent planes” after the 26/11 Mumbai attacks, but that it was “not right approach.”
Using the hashtag ‘Janta Maaf Nahi Karegi’ (people will not forgive) in a tweet, Modi attacked Sam Pitroda, who looks after Congress’ overseas affairs, for reportedly saying that post the Mumbai terror attacks, India could have responded with air strikes, but “according to me that’s not how you deal with world.”
BJP chief Amit Shah followed, attacking the Congress and Mr Pitroda on Twitter, using the hashtag.
PM Modi also shot back at senior Samjwadi Party leader Ram Gopal Yadav for humiliating the families of martyrs and called the opposition “the natural habitat of terror apologists.”
PM Modi appeals to his fellow Indians that and said that 130 crore Indians will not forgive or forget the Opposition for their antics.
“India stands firmly with our forces”, Pm Modi added
