Leader of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Oscar Rebello, denounced Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) for their alleged outburst over the surgical strikes that took place across the Line of Control (LoC) in Pakistan occupied Karshmir (PoK).
“Even during the Kargil conflict in 1999, we did not see Prime Minister A B Vajpayee indulging in any sort of chest thumping. The current government is taking credit for an operation conducted by soldiers. We condemn it,” Rebello said, while adding that the BJP’s actions are also compromising the security of the nation for the upcoming assembly polls in UP, Goa and various other states.
The party also claimed that they were not invited to the recent all-party meet regarding the Mhadei River issue while they also hesitated to give any concrete view on the issue.
“AAP is of the view that the interest of Goa and Goans should be at the forefront. Goa should have the first right over the waters of Mhadei for consumption. We cannot give our share to Karnataka which has a lot of water-guzzling industries in the Hubbali region,” Elvis Gomes, who recently joined the party, said.
Aam Aadmi Party, who has previously asked for evidence of the surgical strikes, is now criticizing a party and indirectly India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi for expressing joy in securing their nation and its people. They face more criticism from the people of India as the party has shown a lack of patriotism for the country the plan on governing. However, they have been praised by the people of Pakistan profusely on Twitter regarding matters along the same lines. AAP is the classic ‘Dhobi ka kutta, naa ghar ka naa ghaat ka.’
