React to Rahul Gandhi’s comment on Agnipath: BJP

Leading EAM S Jaishankar’s BJP mission, the delegation petitioned the EC on Wednesday, requesting action against Rahul Gandhi “for trying to lower the morale of the armed forces” in response to his remarks over the Agnipath initiative.

“Modi has created two types of soldiers,” Jaishankar said, “one consisting of sons of the poor and belonging to Dalit, BC, economically weaker sections and minorities, and the other consisting of sons of the rich.” Rahul made this claim a few days ago. This is an assault on our military forces and a falsehood. They want to depress military morale and turn it into a contentious issue. This isn’t a political matter. It is a national security issue.”

Rahul’s statement was described as “very serious” by the minister, who said that the BJP delegation had asked for harsh punishment and that he take down his remarks. The comment was made by Rahul at a Rae Bareli election rally.
