New Delhi: Communist Party of India (CPI) general secretary Sitaram Yechury on Saturday hit out at Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government. Yechury said that the surgical strikes issue had been politicised by the BJP and called it a despicable attempt.
He said, “Despicable to see an Indian Army operation being misused for political gains in rallies and on election posters of the BJP. Line deliberately being blurred between ruling political party, its fountain head and Central government. India far bigger than their PR machine."
On the intervening night for 28 and 29 September, Indian Army conducted surgical strikes along the LoC in Pakistan where seven terror launch pads were targeted overnight, using hellebore and ground forces. 
On the evening of the strikes after a all party meeting Yechury said, "We have seen our DGMO briefing, saw the Pakistani reaction, besides that we have no official information."

Surgical strike

The communists are always anti-India and they will not hesitate to support Pakistan and china. They did during 1962. Whether BJP is trying to use the surgical strike for its political advantage or not but unfortunately congress ,communists, jdu, and all these pseudo seculars are creating the panic. They are at loss to explain themselves as to why they showed cowardice during their rule (except by Shri Lal Bahdur sashtri and Indra gandi) Their last rule under UPA was shameful when the mumbai was attacked by the terrorist they kept quiet and showed total cowardice. Jai HInd.

Why present Govt should not

Why present Govt should not share the credit of Surgical strike? Whether in India army can take decision of undertaking such operation? We live in democratic country where army works under ruling govt-We give credit of 1965 and 1971 wars to respective that time PMs and no body objects. Now u tell that ruling party publicizing it . But I tell such publicizing is essential so that world and Pakistan can understand that we can retaliate against such cross boarder terrorism this is first show of that. Support ur PM in this matter and U also publicize it and give pat on the back of Our defense forces, National security adviser, Defense ministry and present head of Govt, this is not the time to act as arch opposition.
