‘Unknown, invisible’: Jaitley on Manmohan’s surgical strike claim

May 02, 2019 15:00 IST

Dubbing former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s claims of having conducted several surgical strikes as ‘unknown and invisible’, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said the Congress was ‘afraid’ of celebrating the ‘diplomatic victory’ and was thus making claims of having conducted surgical strikes. Earlier, in an interview with the Hindustan Times, Singh had said that surgical strikes were conducted by the UPA government too but were not used for ‘electoral gains’. Jaitley said the Congress was claiming surgical strikes now only to save political face in light of Azhar’s listing as a global terrorist.
