After Congress, Akhilesh Yadav jumps in to cast aspersions on India’s airstrikes

The opposition leaders have been asking the government and PM Modi to refrain from ‘politicising’ the Air strikes while falling over themselves to politicise the strikes in their bid to attack the government and question the authenticity of the strikes.

It appears that the opposition leaders in India are leaving no stone unturned to belittle our Armed Forces in the aftermath of the Balakot air strikes conducted by the IAF. Days after Congress’ Kapil Sibal questioned the authenticity of the air strikes, today it was Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav who joined the bandwagon in doubting its veracity.

The SP supremo Akhilesh Yadav, while talking to the media, has sought proof determining the number of terrorists killed in India’s retaliatory airstrikes in the wake of the Pulwama attack. Attributing his politics to the people of India, Yadav asserted that the people of the country want to know about the details of the air strikes and the number of terrorists killed.

Akhilesh Yadav also alleged that the borders are unsafe under the Narendra Modi-led government. Dragging Rafale into the issue, Yadav alleged that the government is saying Rafales are good jets, but so are Sukhoi and Mirages, why they were not used? But as per Indian Air Force, Sukhoi and Mirage jets were indeed used in the dogfight when the PAF tried to intrude into the Indian airspace. Yadav should perhaps get acquainted with the full details before blatantly mouthing off lies.

It is also worth mentioning that Akhilesh Yadav is the same politician who had spread misinformation about two-seat Rafales being willy nilly converted to one-seat Rafales.

Earlier this week, while addressing the press conference, Air Chief Marshal had already confirmed that operation carried out by his Air Force against the terror camps in Pakistan have hit the intended targets. Air Chief Marshal BS Dhanoa said, “If we plan to hit the targets, we hit the targets.” Even after the Air Chief Marshal’s assertion, Congress politicians Digvijaya Singh, MP CM Kamalnath and Kapil Sibal questioned the Balakot air strikes.

Today Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav has used the air strikes to further his petty politics. The hatred for Modi seems to have transformed into contempt for Indian Armed forces for many politicians.

It is also notable to mention here that the opposition leaders have been asking the government and PM Modi to refrain from ‘politicising’ the Air strikes while falling over themselves to politicise the strikes in their bid to attack the government and question the authenticity of the strikes.
