Congress’ duality on Pakistan: one leader hugs Pak Army chief, other asks for revenge

Congress leaders can’t seem to be able to make up their minds on what stand they would like to take on Pakistan. On one hand, we have Congress leader and a minister in Punjab cabinet Navjot Singh Sidhu who visits Pakistan on their newly elected chief minister Imran Khan’s swearing-in ceremony and hugs the Pakistani Army chief and on the other hand, Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala is questioning PM Modi for not avenging killing of the soldiers on the border.

Congress has often used the armed forces as per their convenience to make political points. For example, during the 2016 surgical strike, Congress had accused PM Modi of indulging in ‘khoon ki dalali‘ and using the death of the soldiers for political gains. They made such a statement because the government and the Armed forces had decided to announce the surgical strike as a tactical move. Congress was also the same party that had asked for proof of surgical strikes from the Armed Forces and the Indian government and has, on several occasions, criticised the government’s ‘muscular’ policy in Kashmir.

Congress spokesperson Sanjay Jha had once ‘liked’ a tweet that called the Indian Army “Indian occupation forces” and Congress leader Sandeep Dixit had called the Army Chief a “sadak ka gunda”.

With such colourful comments, one wonders how Congress can purport to today care about our jawans who have been insulted time and again by the party.

The truth is, perhaps, that Congress in its desperation to prove PM Modi wrong, has turned itself into a party that doesn’t mind desecrating India’s ‘non-negotiables‘. Every country has a set of values that cannot be trampled upon. For India, one of those values is its respect for the men who fight and lay their lives down for the nation. Congress has repeatedly used these men for their petty politics.

Today, Congress President Rahul Gandhi and his lackeys have again used a martyr to make a political point while his senior leader, Sidhu, hugged the man who leads the hoards that mutilate our men and unleash a barbaric proxy war upon India. Vengeance against Pakistan for defiling our men cannot go hand in hand with demands for “talks” and leaders from Congress hugging their Army Chief while attending “Taliban Khan’s” swearing in ceremony.

It is time Congress starts respecting India’s non-negotiables. The inalienable values that cannot be trampled upon for petty political games.
