Written by | October 10, 2016 | 0

Patna, Oct 10 :  RJD President Lalu Prasad today hailed the Army for its ‘successful’ surgical strikes in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) but mocked the NDA-led Central government for “trying to take credit” for it. “BJP is falsely trying to take credit of brave acts of the Indian Army (for the successful surgical strikes on the launch pads of terrorists in PoK),” he told media persons outside his wife Rabri Devi’s residence at 10 Circular road here before leaving for the last rites of socialist leader Ram Iqbal Warsi in Bhojpur district.

“The Army is known for its valour and it has given befitting reply to Pakistan’s attempts to push terrorists into the country and would do so in future as well. I am sure if the need arises, our brave Army would do a major surgery like this in future also,” the RJD supremo said. Prasad dismissed opposition’s allegations of “rift” between him and Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar saying, “There is a strong bond between me and Nitish Kumar.”
