He said that over 374 casualties of jawans and forces, large number of civilian casualties with more than 3,000 ceasefire violations on LOC and borders have broken all past records of the corresponding periods and the unprecedented sufferings of border people, has exposed the BJP’s failures to deal with Pakistan, in any manner and on any front and its promise of tough policy got exposed and people now question the utility of rhetorics only, leading to escalation of tension between the two countries.
“Modi government’s ceasefire announcement in the wake of objections by the Army and defense ministry and dual role of BJP on the issue, has also exposed lack of co-ordination at various levels and the opportunist role of his party on sensitive issues,” said Mr Sharma.
