BJP trying to take credit for Army’s work: Lalu Yadav

Lalu Yadav

Bihar/Nagpur: Rashtriya Janata Dal president Lalu Yadav on Monday hailed the Army for its ‘successful’ surgical strikes in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir but mocked the Bharatiya Janata Party-led central government for ‘trying to take credit’ for it.

“The BJP is falsely trying to take credit of brave acts of the Indian Army (for the successful surgical strikes on the launch pads of terrorists in PoK),” he told mediapersons outside his wife Rabri Devi’s residence at 10 Circular road in Patna before leaving for the last rites of socialist leader Ram Iqbal Worsi in Bhojpur district.

“The Army is known for its valour and it has given befitting reply to Pakistan’s attempts to push terrorists into the country and would do so in future as well. I am sure if the need arises, our brave Army would do a major surgery like this in future also,” the RJD supremo said.
