New Delhi, Mar 22: Flaying the Congress after its Indian Overseas chief Sam Pitroda questioned the death toll in the Balakot air strike, BJP president Amit Shah said on Friday that Congress' heart beats for terrorists but 'ours beat for the Tiranga'.

Difference between Opposition and BJP is clear. They suspect our Army, we are proud of our Army. Their heart beats for terrorists, ours beat for the Tiranga,' Mr Shah said taking to micro-blogging site Twitter.

This election, through the power of your vote, does a surgical strike on the Congress culture, he said with the hashtag 'JantaMaafNahiKaregi'

“Don’t know much about attacks, it happens all the time, attack happened in Mumbai also, we could have then reacted and just send our planes, but that is not right approach. According to me that’s not how you deal with world”, Mr Pitroda has said.

In a series of tweets, Prime Minister Narendra Modi attacked Congress president Rahul Gandhi and his party, saying “"The most trusted advisor and guide of the Congress President has kick-started the Pakistan National Day celebrations on behalf of ironically by demeaning India’s armed forces. Shame".

Pushing the hashtag 'JantaMaafNahiKaregi', Mr Modi also tweeted: "Opposition insults our forces time and again. I appeal to my fellow Indians- question Opposition leaders on their statements. Tell them - 130 crore Indians will not forgive or forget the Opposition for their antics. India stands firmly with our forces".

Meanwhile, the Congress distanced itself from the statement made by Mr Pitroda saying, 'it was his personal view'.UNI
