Rajya Sabha MP and former senior Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh said that with a strong feeling of nationalism sweeping across the country, those who are engaged in casting aspersion on the Indian Army’s counter-attack on terrorism would be washed away. “Those who are casting doubt on the rightness of the deterrent actions or question the reality behind the action must see reason,” he said while he was in Haridwar on Friday. He further said that China is Pakistan’s new friend and not USA. “It is a strategic victory for India that the countries which were hostile to India till recently are now coming out in support of our country like USA and the European countries,” he said.
Amar Singh further said that India alone can fight China on economic and strategic fronts in the Indian sub-continent. “China is jealous of India and is supporting Pakistan even when the former knows that the Islamic country is the fount of terrorism. India has every right to rise to the occasion as she is at the receiving end of Pakistan-sponsored terrorism,” Singh said.
Training gun on the Congress, he said that those who ridiculed the Balakot air attack dubbing it as a fiasco which targeted grasslands instead of the terrorists, Singh said that they can be likened to thief having a burning hat. “It is more than enough for us that the Indian Air Force attacked and bombed inside the house of the hostile neighbouring country,” he said.
Quizzed over whether BJP is bent on milking the sacrifice of the Indian armed forces personnel for electoral gains, Singh said that there was nothing unnatural in it. “This is a common practice in politics. Did not Congress derive political mileage from the sacrifices of Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi?” he asked.
He further opined that the hardships suffered by the people on account of demonetisation, GST and other economic reforms would not matter much in the election. “What is important is the country and the security of the country,” Amar Singh said.
