New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister and AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday said that BJP’s politicisation of the “surgical strikes” on terror camps in Pakistan will not help them in the Lok Sabha election in Delhi.
“Whatever happened after the Pulwama attack on India-Pakistan border and the way BJP’s conduct was, which politicised it, it is causing damage to the BJP. There’s a notion that it is helping it but it is not, at least not in Delhi,” he told reporters here.
Kejriwal also said that many people had told him that they were apprehensive of a Pulwama-like attack just before the Lok Sabha polls.
“I am only saying what people told us… They told us that they were apprehensive for the last two years that they (BJP) will either foment a conflict over Ram Mandir or between India and Pakistan,” he said.
A suicide bomber killed 40 CRPF troopers in Pulwama in the Kashmir Valley on February 14, leading the Indian Air Force to bomb the biggest training camp of the Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) in Pakistan.
