BJP national president Amit Shah launched a blistering attack on the Rahul Gandhi-led Congress party and other Opposition leaders in the light of the recent controversial comments made by Chairman of the Overseas INC Sam Pitrode raising questions on the death toll in the Balakot airstrike conducted by the Indian Air Force in Pakistan in retaliation to the Pulwama terror attack.
Taking to Twitter Amit Shah replied to the statement posted news agency ANI, Amit Shah called out the Opposition while pointing the 'clear' differences between Rahul Gandhi-led party and the ruling BJP party. While the nation is proud of the army for their efforts in protecting the nation, Amit Shah stated that the Opposition suspects the army, adding that their hearts beat for the terrorists, while Indian's hearts beat for the Tiranga.
Later, he goes onto urge the voters to launch a 'surgical strike on the Congress culture' with the power of their votes in the ensuing Lok Sabha elections 2019.
Congress' close aide Sam Pitroda has triggered yet another controversy for the party only days ahead of the Lok Sabha polls, when he insulted the forces with his questionable remarks. Claiming that attacks happen all the time, Sam Pitroda stated that the then UPA government could have also sent its planes in to counter-attack Pakistan in the aftermath of the attack on Mumbai but "it's not the right approach."
