Goyal lashes out at Chidambaram for doubting Armed forces

Tuticorin, Mar 4: Senior BJP leader and Union Minister Piyush Goyal on Monday lashed out at former Union Minister P Chidambaram for doubting India’s armed forces in the wake of the recent actions, including the IAF strikes at Balakot militant camps, that followed the Pulwama attack.
Talking to reporters on his arrival at the airport here to inaugurate various Railway projects, Goyal said it was shameful that people like Mr Chidambaram were raising questions and doubts about the armed forces and strongly condemned the same.
“As an Indian citizen, raising doubts and demeaning our own Armed forces, they are speaking in favour of Pakistan”, he added. He said at a time when the country was facing several challenges on the militancy front, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been acting as a good leader by taking firm decisions to protect the Nation.
Chidambaram in a series of tweets has said that as a proud citizen he was prepared to believe the government, but the government has to take the effort if it wanted the world to believe, instead of indulging in Opposition-bashing.
“As a proud citizen, I am prepared to believe my government. But if we want the world to believe, the government must make the effort, not indulge in Opposition-bashing”, Chidambaram said.
