New Delhi:Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi today accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of doing “dalali” over the deaths of Indian Army soldiers during Uri terror attacks.

Rahul was addressing a rally at the end of his Kisan Yatra that took place in election-bound Uttar Pradesh at Delhi’s Jantar Mantar.

Modi, he said, was taking political mileage from the surgical strikes the army conducted in Pakistani territory and the sacrifices of soldiers in Jammu and Kashmir.

The Congress leader said, “Yeh bilkul galat hai… Hindustan ki sena ne Hindustan ka kaam kiya, aap apna kaam keejiye… (This is totally wrong… The Indian Army did its job for India, you do your work).”

The Indian Army carried out surgical strikes on the intervening night of September 28/29 against terrorist launch pads across the Line of Control in the wake of a terror attack that left 19 soldiers dead in Jammu and Kashmir.

An aggressive Gandhi also accused Modi of not fulfilling promises made to the people during the 2014 Lok Sabha polls.

Asking Modi to do justice to the people of the country, he said that the Prime Minister has only tried to divide the country by ‘making people fight against each other’.
