Rahul’s opinions followed Lt Gen D S Hooda (retd) remarks in reaction to a dilemma all through a panel discussion at the Armed forces Literature Pageant in Chandigarh on Friday, in which he reported that in hindsight, it would have been better if the surgical strikes have been completed “secretly”. Hooda was the Northern Military commander when Indian troopers carried out the surgical strikes on September 29, 2016 throughout the Line of Control as a response to a terror assault in Uri.
Acknowledging the retired general’s remarks, and introducing his own feedback, on Twitter, Rahul stated: “Spoken like a real soldier, General. India is so happy of you. Mr 36 has absolutely no shame in utilizing our armed forces as a personal asset. He applied the surgical strikes for political money and the Rafale offer to increase Anil Ambani‘s actual money by 30,000 Cr. #SurgicalStrike (sic).”
Hooda, in his comments at the military services literary festial, also reported the preliminary euphoria all over the success of the surgical strikes was purely natural, but that the continuous hoopla close to the army procedure was unwarranted. “Did the overhype assistance? I say, completely no. If you start getting political resonance in army functions, it is not great. There was far too a great deal political banter, on both equally sides, and when military services operations get politicised, that is not superior,” Hooda claimed.
Congress spokesperson Abhishek Singhvi also claimed the “government is guilty of the most crass and low-priced politicisation of the Army”. “Anonymity of the Army is its major toughness and it was maintained by just about every federal government apart from this just one. But we are grateful that some quantity of truth is coming out, and it is coming out at the optimum stage,” he stated.
