Lucknow | Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has termed the statement of former Congress President Rahul Gandhi on soldiers as “condemnable and shameful”, and has asked the Congress leader to apologise to the brave soldiers and to the country.
The CM said that the statement of Congress leader Rahul Gandhi is indecent, childish and is going to inspire anti-national elements. “It amounts to humiliating India and India’s brave army internationally. We condemn his statement. When the whole country and the world are saying that the brave soldiers of India have foiled the acts of the infiltrators, to talk disrespectfully of them is something no Indian will accept it”, CM Yogi remarked.
However, CM Yogi added that it was not for the first time that Rahul Gandhi has made a derogatory remark about the soldiers. “Even in Doklam, when there was a tussle between the armies of both the countries, Rahul Gandhi and the Congress were exposed. Instead of respecting the valour of the armed forces, they were patronising anti-India acts by meeting the Chinese ambassador.”
Emphasising that Rahul Gandhi’s statement is “condemnable and shameful”, the Chief Minister said whenever there is a crisis, or a challenge, in front of the country, he exposes himself by putting India in the dock. “They point fingers at our brave soldiers. We condemn this thinking of Congress and Rahul Gandhi. Rahul Gandhi must apologise to the people of the country and the brave soldiers and also refrain from doing such things in future”, he concluded.
