Punjab Tourism Navjot Singh Sidhu on Monday made fun of Balakot air strikes asking ‘Were you uprooting terrorist of trees?’.
Tweeting the screenshots of various media reports on the remarks of various BJP leaders, including Union Minister of State S.S Ahluwalia on air strikes, Mr. Sidhu said “300 terrorist dead, Yes or No? What was the purpose then? Were you uprooting terrorist or trees? Was it an election gimmick? Deceit possesses our land in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.” “Stop politicising the army, it is as sacred as the state,” he added.
Earlier, Mr. Sidhu had come under criticism from several quarters over his remarks which aimed to save the face of Pakistan from the Pulwama terror attack saying an entire nation can’t be held responsible for the attack. (UNI)
