Congress Ka Hath, Pakistan Ke Saath
|by Dr. Subhash Kapila|
Heatedly Observed By Yashwant Sinha in Parliament
The Congress Government has come under heavy fire from all sections of the Parliament on the Pakistan Army raid on an Indian post on our side of the LOC for its inactivity in not responding strongly against repeated Pakistani military provocations. Tempers soared sky-high when the Defence Minister delivered on the floor of the House a watered down statement different from the statement of the Indian Army which clearly referred to Pakistan Army participation in the raid and killing of Indian troops. In a heated retort BJP senior leader Yaswant Sinha, a former Foreign Minister was provoked by calculated Congress MPs interruptions to declare that it was becoming obvious that “Congress ka Haath, Pakistan ke Saath” which translated means implicitly that the Congress Government is more aligned with Pakistan than safeguarding Indian national security interests.
The media reported that in the time between the Defence Minister’s statement in Parliament and the briefing statement originated by the Indian Army given to him which stated that Pakistan Army was involved in the raid on the Indian troops, the Defence Minister is reported to have had a meeting with the Prime Minister. Speculation is rife that the Defence Minister watered down his statement after meeting with the Prime Minister and then adopting an ambiguous statement that that terrorists and some people dressed in Pakistan Army participated in the killings of the Indian troops. All political parties asserted in Parliament that the Congress Government in so doing was providing an alibi for Pakistan.
