Is there a political strategy behind Arvind Kejriwal’s demand for exposing Pakistan’s fake propaganda on surgical Strike?

A few days back, Arvind Kejriwal in a Special Assembly Session had congratulated the Prime Minister for successful surgical strikes and assured his and AAP’s support on matters of internal and external security. One can watch the clip: AAP In News on Twitter

His video message, which is being wrongly portrayed by a section of media, BJP and its supporters:

he applauds PM Modi for the surgical strikes across LOC post Uri attacks. He also says, he and PM Modi may have umpteen issue based differences but when it comes to nation’s security and defense, he and his party will always stand by the PM.

He salutes the the PM for giving a befitting reply to Pakistan by demolishing the terror launching pads.

Further, he raised his concerns about Pakistan’s malicious propaganda against India. Pakistan is asking international media to visit the border regions. Pakistan is hell bent on spreading that India is lying about the surgical strikes.

What If Surgical Strikes Never Happened, International Media starts asking: As a result of Pakistan’s propaganda international media started raising doubts. The Washington Post, The Diplomat, The New York Times reported as per Pakistani propaganda.

So, Arvind Kejriwal only requested the PM to blow the false propaganda of Pakistan. But the media and BJP social media army swiftly gave it a different colour and started promoting that AK is pro-pak and anti Indian army!

He never said he doubts Indian Army. Neither he asked for proofs for himself. He just asked to burst the Pakistani propaganda. 

Now who has politicized surgical strikes?

Lets check these posters:

What these posters imply: These are the posters that have come up in poll bound UP and Goa by state units of BJP. Here the local state leaders are hailing the PM and BJP Govt for surgical strikes as if it was not done by PM of India but PM of a party.

Villagers along the Punjab-Pakistan border are already realizing how BJP is creating a war like situation superficially to score brownie points politically: Villagers see political motive in evacuation along Wagah border

As per a report published in The Hindu :  “Questions mount over the Punjab government’s decision to evacuate around eight lakh people along the Pakistan border, with intelligence sources telling The Hindu that it was not based on any security assessment from the central agencies.”

Also, it is being reported that BJP, Goa state is planning a ‘victory rally’ for Minister Parrikar in Goa. Manohar Parrikar’s ‘Victory’ Rally In Goa already Coming Under Criticism

A report published in The Times Of India further clears the air that which party is politicizing the whole issue. As stated in TOI, a BJP functionary says,  “There is talk among ministers that the central government is planning a major internal security-related military operation in Jammu and Kashmir. Once the operation is successful, they will hail Rajnath Singh as a hero in the media. That will increase his standing among the people as a tough leader. Once that image is seared into the minds of the people, it will be much easier to project him as the CM face by November. The momentum will be with us and we can win UP”

Thus, makes amply clear who is actually politicizing!
