Nationalist Congress Celebration chief Sharad Pawar on Wednesday mentioned not like Prime Minister Narendra Modi, former prime minister Indira Gandhi by no means sought votes within the title of the military. He was addressing a ballot rally in Balapur, Maharashtra.
“The Prime Minister of the nation, Narendra Modi, campaigned on the problem of nationwide safety within the Lok Sabha polls (held earlier this yr),” Mr Pawar advised the gathering, referring to the Pulwama terror assault.
The Air Pressure had given a “befitting reply” to the perpetrators of the Pulwama assault, however PM Modi sought votes within the title of the valour proven by the safety forces, he mentioned.
“I bear in mind when India and Pakistan had fought (in 1971). Indira Gandhi was the prime minister then. She not solely gained the struggle (for India) and created historical past, but in addition modified the world’s geography.
“Pakistan was divided into two elements, resulting in the creation of a brand new nation referred to as Bangladesh. However Indira Gandhi by no means sought votes within the title of the valour proven by the Military,” he mentioned.
Mr Pawar, a former Congressman, additional mentioned Indira Gandhi was clear in her thoughts that the whole nation had backed the Military throughout the struggle and therefore she by no means politicised the problem.
“The Air Pressure’s motion helped the nation after Pulwama. However wherever Modi Saheb went (after the air strike), he mentioned ‘we did it’. At one place, he had mentioned that ‘ghus ke maroonga’ (will barge in and hit).
“It’s the Military or Air Pressure that takes the motion and these folks, sitting in Delhi, will say ‘ghus ke maroonga‘,” Mr Pawar mentioned.
