In a post on X, Jakhar said, “Ghastly statement by CWC member Channi belittling the valour of our brave soldiers is no less a crime and an insult to nation. Channi’s shameful statement on the attack on our Air Force personnel in Poonch calling their valour as a stunt shows the bankruptcy and frustration of Channi”.
“The nation will not forgive him. He should hang his head in shame. The Congress and its allies should come clean on this issue. They should publically disassociate from his statement and ask him to apologise to the nation immediately,” Jakhar added in his post.
Former Chief Minister of Punjab Charanjit Singh Channi alleged that the Poonch terror attack was “pre-planned” and said such “stuntbaazi” is done to make the BJP win the elections.
“This is stuntbaazi. And not the (terror) attacks. When elections come, such stunts are done to make the BJP win. These are pre-planned attacks, there is no truth in them…,”alleged the Congress leader.
Meanwhile, Union Minister Anurag Thakur demanded an apology from top Congress brass including former party president Sonia Gandhi.
“I have a question for Congress: Were the 1962, 1965, and 1971 wars done for winning elections? On such a ridiculous statement, Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge, Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi should apologise…They question the ability of our forces…How low will Congress stoop? Will Congress insult our Bravehearts for the sake of winning elections?” Thakur told reporters.
He also lashed out at Rahul Gandhi for holding meeting with Chinese diplomats behind the closed doors when the Indian soliders were giving befitting reply to Chinese aggression at Doklam.
“Where was Rahul Gandhi when our soliders gave a befitting reply to the Chinese aggression at Doklam? Who knows what was he upto behind the closed doors with the Chinese diplomats? He should tell the nation what was he doing,” he added.
An Indian Air Force (IAF) soldier was killed and four others were injured in the terror attack in the Poonch district of Jammu and Kashmir on Saturday evening.
The attack came ahead of the Lok Sabha elections in the Anantnag-Rajouri seat for the 2024 general elections.
The elections in Jammu and Kashmir are being held in five phases from April 19 to May 20.
The 2024 Lok Sabha elections are being held in seven phases in a six week marathon running from April 19 to June 1. The counting and results would be declared on June 4.
Notably, opposition in 2019 alleged that BJP had “used” the 2019 Pulwama terror attack in which 40 personnel of CRPF were killed by terrorist. They further alleged that the Balakot air strike in the neighbouring country was done by BJP to win the Lok Sabha polls that year.-ANI
