IT IS MY NATURE TO SETTLE EVERY SCORE: PM URGES OPPOSITION TO QUESTION HIS POLICIES BUT NOT ARMED FORCES
It is 5th March 2019, it could well be 2014 or I might be getting a feeling of Déjà vu. Reaffirming that this is New India
Humara siddhant hai, hum ghar me ghus ke marenge (It is our principle to take the attack home),” “Chun chun ke hisaab lena meri fitrat hai (It is my nature nature to settle every score),” said Modi in Gujarat , his home state where he hit at the opposition and questioned their nationalism. He said, you may question me on my policies. You may not trust me but trust the armed forces. Don’t raise questions about their valour.
Dear PM, don’t think any one is doubting the armed forces here, but questioning you and other policians does not make a person against the nation. If we jog our memory, you had said pretty uch the same thing in 2014. and then we all know about how he made a mid way stop to attend Nawaz Sharif function with a hug.

In first public remarks on the 26 February air strike by the IAF on a Jaish-e-Mohammad terror camp in Balakot in Pakistan, Air Chief Marshal B S Dhanoa Monday said the “Air Force is not in a position to clarify how many people were inside (the target). We don’t count human casualties. We count what targets have been hit, or not hit”.
Not only the opposition , even you dear listener must wonder that who is the one counting bodies? Don’t go too far, it is Amit Shah, BJP President counting dead bodies , a duty he will do well no doubt. I don’t even want to doubt it, lest he brings forth the proof in form of dead bodies from this or that side of the border, who knows? But for a moment please stop and ask yourself,
How does the BJP Pres know about terrorist casualties across the border? He is not a member of the Cabinet Committee on Security, he is not the Defence Minister. Is he being briefed by intelligence agencies?If so, in what capacity?Time for the GOI to come on record on casualties.
As someone had said before me, I will repeat today and someone will say it after me, the only casualty in politics and war is the truth and we are going through politics of war, so you can imagine the deep wounds on Truth, whatever that is.
