'Why is it that they all speak the same language?', MoS Home Affairs Kiren Rijiju has asked, slamming the Congress party and others over developments in light of the Indian Air Force's strikes on Pakistan's terror bases.
Taking to Twitter, Rijiju has highlighted a tweet by Pakistani politician Senator Rehman Malik where the latter is upholding Congress president Rahul Gandhi as the next Prime Minister of India, claiming 'he speaks sense, whereas Modi is scared of him'.
In response to this, Rijiju has asked why the Congress, Pakistan, the Tukde Tukde gang and separatists all speak in the same language?
While the MoS Home's statement had come on Sunday and had cited the remarks of Congress leader Digvijaya Singh seeking proof of the strikes, it arguably stands even truer on Monday with the Rahul Gandhi-led party going all-out to question the forces and in Navjot Singh Sidhu's case, even take Pakistan's line.
Kapil Sibal tweeted the following, holding foreign media more sacrosanct than the security forces which had already confirmed in their joint press briefing that the intended target had been hit and the intended damage had been caused.
However, this is Sidhu's preposterous statement:
On Monday, IAF Chief BS Dhanoa also confirmed once more that the IAF had hit the desired target, saying the following at a press briefing in Coimbatore:
"The target has been completely amplified by the Foreign Secretary, and of course, if we plan to hit the target, we hit the target. Otherwise, why would he have responded? If we had dropped bombs in the jungle, there is no need for him to respond", Air Force Chief BS Dhanoa said.
He was then asked "How many terrorists have been killed?"
To this, the IAF Chief said, "That statement will be made by the government. IAF is not in a position to clarify how many people were inside at that time. We don't count human casualties, we count what targets we have hit or not hit. the bomb damage assessment calculates how many you have hit or have not been able to hit. We can't count how many people have died, that depends on how many people were there."
Prime Minister Narendra Modi tweeted the following in response to this:
