Pakistan dismisses Surgical Strikes Video; calls it a figment of India's imagination
Pakistan on Thursday dismissed the surgical strikes video footage released by the Indian government calling it "a figment of India's imagination. "
The Indian media broadcast the alleged surgical strike videos on Wednesday through out the day.
The video footage played by news channels also triggered a war of words between the Congress and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
A war of words began between Congress and BJP, a day after the Government released the footage of Indian Army's surgical strike across the Line of Control (LoC) in 2016.
The Congress has accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP of politicising the strikes to garner votes.
Addressing a press conference in New Delhi, Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala said that instead of giving credit to the Army, the BJP is trying to drive political mileage from it by crediting PM Modi.
Union Minister Ravi Shankar criticised Congress making such statement which is only "demoralises the Army".
"The people who will be most happy with the statement of Congress leaders are the terrorists in Pakistan. Congress will get a certificate from some terrorist organisations of Pakistan just like Ghulam Nabi Azad got the certificate from Lashkar-e-Taiba," Prasad said.
