The Congress today disowned its leader Sanjay Nirupam’s suggestion that last week’s surgical strikes across the Line of Control are “fake” unless the government offers proof.
At the same time, the party said the government must “call Pakistan’s bluff”.
“It’s time for the government to expose Pakistan’s malicious propaganda. The evidence should be made public,” said party spokesperson Randeep Surjewala.
Asserting that there is “no question of any doubt” about the strikes, Mr Surjewala said: “We would like to urge the PM to stop politicising the bravery of Indian soldiers for myopic political gain.”
Earlier today, Mr Nirupam had made controversial statements raising doubts about the strikes.
