Shame: Modi Asks People to Vote in The Name of Pulwama Martyrs, Balakot

Despite the ECI’s strict guideline to “desist” from indulging in propaganda involving actions taken by defence forces.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi once again resorted to exploiting the military while indirectly asking people to vote for Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) at Latur, Maharashtra on Tuesday. 

Alok Kumar reporting for TV9 Bharatvarsh wrote that Modi had sunk low once again to score votes by pulling up the Indian military, mentioning their martyrdom in Pulwama, and their work behind the Balakot airstrike.

The PM said, “Take a pledge, the first vote you are going to cast, I ask, can your first vote be dedicated to the soldiers who were behind the Balakot airstrike?… Can your first vote be dedicated to the soldiers martyred in the Pulwama attack?…”

Earlier on March 19 the Election Commission (EC) had asked political parties to “desist” from indulging in any propaganda involving actions taken by defence forces during their Lok Sabha poll campaigns.

Modi’s remark caused outrage on social media, and many people pointed out that Pulwama was an intelligence failure for which the government is yet to answer.
