Yehdiyupara further said that the move of Indian PM has also paid in decreasing anti-Modi wave across India. "With the preemptive strike, he has kept his promise". Reacting to Horticulture Minister M C Managoli's statement that no strikes should have been conducted on CRPF personnel or terrorists, Yeddyurappa said a minister should not make such irresponsible statements. "Social media and our social media volunteers will have a big contribution to the 2019 Lok Sabha election", Prime Minister Modi said while addressing the BJP booth workers via video conference.
Yeddyurappa's statement can safely be called the most insensitive political remark made after the Pulwama attack, and the subsequent air strikes that the Indian Air Force (IAF) launched on terror camps deep into Pakistani territory.
At present, BJP holds 16 Lok Sabha seats in Karnataka, while Congress has 10 and Janata Dal (Secular) two.
It may be recalled that former Karnataka chief minster, Siddaramaiah, has said that Yeddyurappa's attempt to gain political mileage of the military operation has given rise to suspicions. I have highest regard for our armed forces.
Celebrations in Nigeria as President Buhari is Re-elected
President Musa Yar'Adua, who won the presidential election in 2007, died in power in 2010, therefore could not contest in 2011. The electoral commission said in its official declaration before dawn that Buhari received 15.1 million votes, or 55 percent.
State Congress chief Dinesh Gundu Rao termed Yeddyurappa's statement "disgusting, shameful and irresponsible".
He also said that as union minister, Sushma Swaraj, already convened an all-party meeting and gave full details of what happened, the question of reaping any political benefit does not arise. Is winning elections becoming the criteria for BJP and not the security of India.
"For the first time in 40 years, Prime Minister Narendra Modi's bravery has resulted in Pakistan learning a lesson. Is going to war a electoral strategy for the BJP", he tweeted. Bowing before Indias military might and successful foreign policy, Pakistan is on its knees and has announced the release of our courageous pilot Abhinandan from its captivity.
