Arvind Kejriwal lauds PM Narendra Modi

The Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday praised the Indian Prime Minister Narendra modi for the surgical strike carried out against Pakistani terrorists. Keeping all his differences with PM aside, Kejriwal congratulated Modi "for the will power he showed on this issue."

In a video shared via his Twitter account, the Delhi Chief Minister said: "Nineteen jawans lost their lives in Uri and the Indian Army took revenge for that last week and carried out surgical strikes in terror launch pads.”

“I have 100 disagreements with the Prime Minister on several issues, but I salute the will power shown by him in this matter.”

Kejriwal also argued Modi to “prove Pakistan's false propaganda" about the surgical strikes. Pakistan has denied all the reports claiming India has carried out surgical strikes across the Line of Control last week.

The Chief Minister said: “We have seen in the past two weeks that Pakistan is taking international journalists to the border and trying to show them that no surgical strike happened in the first place.”

“I appeal to the nation not to fall for Pakistan’s false propaganda,” he added.

According to the government sources, footage and stills were recorded in part through drones as evidences of the attack. The government has said that it will decide when and if to share evidence, sources said.

Earlier, several opposition leaders including  Congress president Sonia Gandhi and vice president Rahul Gandhi have praised PM Modi over the surgical strikes . Congratulating the government in its strong action, Sonia Gandhi described the strike as a "strong message that conveys our country's resolve to prevent further infiltration and attacks on our security forces and our people.” The coming of all the parties on the issue on national security is indeed a defining moment. As in recent times the government and opposition have been at loggerheads over host of important issues
