BJP leader Ravi Shankar Prasad slammed Arvind Kejriwal and also took on Congress leader P Chidambaram for playing politics over the Indian Army-led surgical strike.
Leading from the front was Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad who reminded the Delhi Chief Minister about the Indian tradition of staying united at the time of national crisis. He asked:
Why is Kejriwal being swayed by the Pakistani propaganda? Kejriwal ji, there is a tradition to remain united at a time of crisis.

He also said that now Arvind Kejriwal was now making headlines in Pakistan for raising doubts over the Indian Army and advised him to not mix politics with national security.
Ravi Shankar Prasad asked: “My question to Kejriwal is whether he believes in the extreme valor of the Indian Army,” telling him to “not demoralize the Army” by asking for the proof.
Ravi Shankar Prasad then took on the Congress leader P Chidambaram asked if the former Finance Minister’s comments were the official line of his party. He said:
“I want to ask him if he is also joining the bandwagon of doubting the capacity of our jawans in conducting surgical strikes.”
Chidambaram on Monday said that it was up to the government to provide the proof of the surgical strikes conducted on September 28 night. During the strikes, the Indian Army destroyed seven terror launch pads.
Arvind Kejriwal says he is misunderstood, hits at Ravi Shankar Prasad
Reacting to the press conference of Ravi Shankar Prasad, Arvind Kejriwal claimed innocence and said that BJP is doing politics over his video statement. he wondered where he went wrong as he merely asked the Indian government to debunk Pakistani propaganda effectively. He also said that there is no point attacking me and shared a video on Twitter and wrote:
This false propaganda needs to be effectively countered. No point attacking me. I am wid u. Lets together expose Pak.
In short, he is not going to do what Ravi Shankar Prasad said, i.e., ignore the Pakistani propaganda, stay united and trust Indian Army. You can see what he said:

Pakistani media gleefully cheered for Arvind Kejriwal yesterday saying that the Delhi Chief Minister also doubts Indian claims. Naturally, many Indians were angry:
Now that @ArvindKejriwal & @digvijaya_28 have disgracefully toed Pak line on #SurgicalStrikes, subverted parts of our media will follow suit

Kejriwal came to do 'politics with a difference' and ended up being in the elite club of Nirupam & Digvijay Singh. Great minds think alike.

Omar Abdullah with Kejriwal, Ravi Shankar Prasad may need to manage political parties and bring a consensus
Omar Abdullah posted that BJP is taking mileage of the ops for the Uttar Pradesh elections only to be countered on the grounds that the posters he is talking about were put not by BJP but by others.
No reward for guessing that this one is in UP. For the BJP & sections of the shouting brigade it's always do as we say don't do as we do!!!
