National security has become poll plank to earn votes: Mehbooba

Srinagar, May 3: Reacting to Congress listing out surgical strikes during the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) rule, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) president Mehbooba Mufti said sadly, the national security has become a poll plank to earn votes.
Mehbooba, who is the former chief minister of J&K, said after the BJP’s surgical strike brouhaha and rhetoric, its Congress’s turn to boast.
“Sadly, national security has become a poll plank to earn votes. After the BJPs surgical strike brouhaha & rhetoric, its Congress’s turn to boast. Nothing else justifies the sudden revelations,” Mehbooba wrote on micro-blogging site twitter.
The Congress on Thursday came out with a list of six surgical strikes carried out during the UPA rule, asserting that it never tried to take political advantage from military operations.
