DELHI(ANI):Taking a turn from his usual attacking stance on the Centre, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday hailed Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ‘decisiveness’ to act against Islamabad with a surgical strike and called on a latter to now wage a war against the ‘dirty propaganda’ being spread by Pakistan against India.
Speaking in a message posted on YouTube, Kejriwal admitted that he may not see eye-to-eye with the Prime Minister on several counts, but saluted the move by the latter to carry out a surgical strike against active terror launch pads in Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK).
“19 jawans lost their lives in Uri and the Indian Army took revenge for that last week and carried out surgical strikes in terror launch pads. I may have 100 disagreements with the Prime Minister on several issues, but I salute the will power shown by him in this matter,” he said.

Asserting that Pakistan is losing its mind since the operation was carried out, Kejriwal said that the hostile neighbour has now resorted to dirty propaganda against India in an attempt to save its image.
“We have seen in the past two weeks that Pakistan is taking international journalists to the border and trying to show them that no surgical strike happened in the first place. Two days ago, the United Nations gave a statement that no untoward activity has been spotted on the border. CNN ran a report that Pakistan government took a bus filled with international journalists to prove that no such strike took place, and that people are living regularly and that enraged me to no end,” the Chief Minister said.
Emphasising that several international news organisations like BBC and the New York Times were running reports questioning the existence of such an operation by India, Kejriwal added that Pakistan is working hard to insult India on an international level.
He then appealed to the Prime Minister to expose Pakistan’s propaganda and attempts to malign India, in the same way the Indian Army took revenge for the deadly Uri attack.
“I appeal to the nation not to fall for Pakistan’s false propaganda,” he added.
