PM's remarks justify Israel's action against Palestine: CPI

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

today targeted Prime Minister Modi for likening army's surgical strikes to Israel's exploits, contending his remark "justify" that country's actions against Palestine, deviating from India's stated position on the matter.

The Left party sought to underscore difference between army's surgical strikes and exploits of army in Palestine, saying the context in which the two forces conducted their operations are entirely different and cannot be compared.



national secretary D Raja also hit out at Defence Minister for giving credit to "teachings" for the operation, saying his remark was "unbecoming" for a person holding a ministerial post.

"...Indian Army's surgical strikes were conducted in completely different context. What the PM is saying is justifying Israel's actions against Palestine. This goes against India's stated position," Raja said.

Raja further accused for "shamelessly exploiting" the strikes eyeing gains in forthcoming assembly polls, particularly in Uttar Pradesh, and charged the ruling party with dragging army into the controversy.

"Parrikar too gave credit to teachings for the operation. It is deplorable and completely unbecoming of a Defence Minister," the Rajya Sabha member said.

Raja said Parrikar giving credit to teachings for the operation along LoC also shows that the Sangh is "suffering from the guilt" of not having participated in freedom struggle.

"Now they are not only politicising the strike, but also communalising it," he said.

Speaking during inauguration of three hydropower projects in Himachal Pradesh, Modi had yesterday likened the army's anti-terror surgical strikes to Israel's exploits and said the Indian forces have shown they are no less than any other force.
