New Delhi, March 21: With senior Samajwadi Party leader Ram Gopal Yadav accusing Narendra Modi-led Union government of using the Pulwama terror attacks got electoral gains and called the attack a ‘conspiracy’ in which ‘soldiers were killed for vote’, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Thursday slammed the SP leader asking to apologise to the nation.

Reacting on the statement of Yadav, Adityanath said, “Ramgopal Yadav ka bayan ghatiya rajniti ka bhadda udharan hai, unhe CRPF ke jawano ki shahadat pe prashn khada karne, aur desh ke jawano ka manobal todne wale is bayan ke liye, janata se maafi maangni chahiye (Ramgopal Yadav’s statement is an example of cheap politics. He should apologise to the people for degrading the martyrdom and spirit of CRPF jawans).

Earlier, commenting on the Lok Sabha elections, the SP leader stated that if the power position is changed in the centre and a probe is conducted into the Pulwama terror attack, ‘big fish’ will be caught. Mayawati Gets Facial Done Every Day, Colours Hair To Look Young, Says UP BJP MLA Surendra Narayan Singh; Watch Video. 

He had said, “Paramilitary forces are unhappy with the government. Soldiers were killed for votes. There was no security checking between Jammu and Srinagar. Soldiers were being transported in ordinary buses. This was a conspiracy. I did not want to say this at this point of time. When the government changes, (and) it is probed, many big fish will be caught.”

It is to be known that several leaders from BJP were seen boasting the Balakot air strike in public platforms and opposition parties have raised the question on the way the IAF strike conducted it. Considering the polls, the Election Commission barred political parties from using the images and names of defence personnel in their poll campaigns.
