Sikar (Rajasthan) [India], May 3 (ANI): Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday mocked the Congress over its claim of having conducted surgical strikes during the UPA regime telling the party that it is not a video game.
A day after the Congress claimed that six surgical strikes were carried out by the Manmohan Singh-led government, he said the Congress, which earlier used to mock the surgical strikes, is now saying 'me too, me too'.
"After losing in the first four phases of the Lok Sabha elections, now Congress is doing a new drama. A senior Congress leader last night said that during their time surgical strikes were done many times. Now Congress is trying everything to prove that it too had carried out surgical strikes. Congress claims that they carried out six surgical strikes," Prime Minister Modi said while addressing a rally here.
"What type of strikes were these about which the terrorists did not get to know, Pakistan didn't know and even Indians didn't know. First they mocked it. When they saw that the people are standing with Modi, then they started protesting. And now they say 'me too me too'," he added.
"I think there are people in the Congress who play video games at any age and may be they even consider surgical strike as a video game," Modi said.
"Jab kagaz par hi karni ho, jab video game mein hi strike karni ho to 6 ho ya 3 ho, 20 hon ya 25 hon, ye jhoote logon ko kya fark padta hai," he added.
The Prime Minister later took another jibe at the Congress and said "when the results for Lok Sabha elections will come out on May 23, then the Congress will say that we did 600 surgical strikes."
At the rally, Prime Minister Modi also said, "I promise you that the water which is currently flowing to Pakistan will be diverted to the farms in India." (ANI)
