Cong advises "motormouth" Vijayvargiya to get counselling from PMO

ANI  |  New Delhi [India] 

Lambasting (BJP) leader Vijayvargiya over his assertion that casting doubts over the surgical strikes conducted by the amounts to sedition, the Party on Thursday said that the former being the cause for half of the trouble should get some counselling from the Prime Minister's Office (PMO).

leader Tom Vadakkan alleged that if there is an award for motormouths, Vijayvargiya would get it.

"He is the cause for half of the trouble. I think there is no connectivity between Vijayvargiya and the Prime Minister. That being the situation, I think it's time there is some counselling done for Vijayvargiya by the Prime Minister's Office to tell him to take it easy and not get so excited. In a democracy, criticisms do come; we have all to face it," Vadakkan told ANI.

"But clamping sedition charges against people for offences, which are under the democratic practices practiced in this country and all over the world. So, Vijayvargiya and his likes should chill it out," he added.

The general secretary earlier said that raising doubts on the recent surgical strikes carried out by the across the Line out of Control (LOC) amounts to sedition.

"One should never doubt the army. To point a finger on the army I believe amounts to sedition. One should never question the army, if somebody is asking for proof that means they have doubts on the army," Vijayvargiya told ANI.

He further said that one should motivate the army rather than questioning and raising doubts just for political gains.

"A statement which demoralises the army and motivates other countries is next to sedition. No matter how many parties are there or what they say, but the country should be the priority," he added.

Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar had earlier heaped praise on the Indian Army, saying they carried out a "100 percent perfect surgical strike" on the seven terror launch pads across the LoC.

"We carried out a 100 percent perfect surgical strike. Our nation carries the heart and courage to carry this task out. There are many people who are not loyal to our country and criticized the Indian Army, but we don't have to give them any proof," Parrikar said while addressing the workers and locals at the GIC ground in Agra.

Parrikar, however, yesterday said that he would only share the credit of the surgical strikes conducted by the with Prime Minister Narendra Modi and added that the major share of the success goes to the latter for apt decision making and planning.

"I will only share the credit, the major share goes to the Prime Minister. This should settle the nerves of many people," he said.

He also took a jibe on the cynical criticism surrounding the strikes and said that doubters can also share the credit for the success of the same.

"I understand that people are satisfied," said Parrikar.
