Rahul's seniors should teach him value of restrained language:

Press Trust of India  |  Dehradun 

Continuing with his attack on for his "Khoon ki Dalali" remark, Union minister today said senior leaders should teach him value of restrained language in politics, especially while talking about something involving the Prime Minister and the armed forces.

Prasad said Prime Minister Modi's "dogged resolve" to fight terror was amply reflected in his deeds and does not need an explanation in words.



"I want to say this, especially to who makes a remark like 'Khoon ki dalali' against the Prime Minister. Perhaps he has forgotten what a similar unrestrained remark like 'Muat ke Saudagar' had led to some years back," he said.

The Minister said, "I thought his (Rahul's) seniors in the party will teach him a couple of things about the value of restrained language. But I should not have expected that from where loyalty to Rahul overrides all other sentiments including loyalty to one's own country."

Earlier also, Prasad had termed the statements extremely regrettable and shameful.

Targeting leaders who asked Modi to show his "56 inch chest" after the Uri attack, the Minister said, he found their reaction to the surgical strikes "strange".

Summing up the message of surgical strikes, he said it was to announce that "we, as a nation, won't tolerate an attack on our unity and integrity".

Quoting Ramdhari Singh Dinkar's famous lines "Kshama shobhti us Bhujang ko jiske pas garal ho, usko kya jo dantheen vishrahit vineet saral ho," (only those can forgive who have got the capacity to strike), he said, the surgical strikes sent out a similar message.

"We are all proud of our armed forces. We may live for the country but our army and para-military personnel die for the country. We should respect that," he said.

"Giving formal respect to the armed forces on the one hand and raising all issues showing disrespect to the armed forces on the other is not done," he said.

When asked whether the surgical strikes were timed to reap electoral gains, the Union Minister posed a counter question asking if Modi swept to power at the Centre with absolute majority in 2014 due to a surgical strike.

Replying to another question, he said top army officials who served during UPA's time have made it clear no surgical strikes were carried out at this scale across the LoC earlier.
