If Indiraji is credited for 1971 Bangladesh war, why not Modi for the Pakistan air-strike: Rajnath

BHUBANESWAR: Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Friday said Prime Minister Narendra Modi deserves the credit for the country’s air strike inside Pakistan just as Indira Gandhi was honoured for the success in the 1971 Bangladesh Liberation War.

Singh, a BJP stalwart, hit out at the Congress for seeking evidence of the outcome of the Balakot air strike by Indian Air Force and said the BJP-led Government has been able to effectively isolate Pakistan for sheltering terror elements.

He recounted that former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee who was a leader of the Jan Sangh, the former avtar of BJP, had complimented Indira Gandhi for the success in the Bangladesh Liberation war and had said the party would not hesitate to accord its fullest cooperation to Indira Gandhi.
