While addressing a rally in Jalna yesterday Pankaja said, "After the cowardly attack on our jawans, first time in the history of India, a surgical strike was conducted and these people ask why do you do surgical strike? Who did this? Show us proof? A bomb should have been tied around Rahul Gandhi and he should have been sent to some other country."

The Congress has condemned her remarks. "The cheap thoughts of BJP leaders are being proved once again. We don't expect anything less than that from them. Those who label a martyr (Karkare) as anti-national are capable of going to any extent. We condemn Munde's statement," said Sachin Sawant, Congress spokesperson.
