Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday launched blistering attack at the BJP asking why the saffron party was frustrated on his advice for the central government to counter Pakistani propaganda.
He said, “I’m sad..If we say we are with the government in combating terrorism and government must give befitting reply to Pakistan’s false propaganda, why is BJP frustrated?”
In a separate tweet, Kejriwal accused the BJP of twisting his video message.
He said, “BJP twisting my video.My humble appeal to BJP-“Its sensitive matter. Pl don’t play politics”. My response to BJP (sic).”

Meanwhile AAP protested outside the Pakistani High Commission office in Delhi on Tuesday.
Party leader Sanjay Singh said, “The spokesperson of the UN Secretary General said that there was no surgical strike. Our prime minister must respond to these lies and give befitting reply to Pakistan…The prime minister must bring the truth in front of the world to silence our critics. What’s wrong did we say. Is praising the PM politics as alleged by the junior home minister?”
Earlier on Tuesday, Union minister in Narendra Modi’s government, Ravi Shankar Prasad, had attacked for his video message ‘praising’ the Indian government for surgical strikes across the border.
“Arvind Kejriwalji, I hope you know that you are in the headlines of Pakistani media today,” Prasad was quoted Firstpost news portal.
Prasad’s remark came a day after Pakistani newspaper The Express Tribune published a report titled “Delhi CM ‘questions’ authenticity of India’s ‘surgical strikes’ in Pakistan.”
Elsewhere, Congress leader Sanjay Nirupam too termed the reported surgical strikes across the LoC as fake.
