The BJP has stepped up attack against senior Congress leader M Veerappa Moily for his remarks against Chief of Air Force Air Chief Marshal B S Dhanoa and said the former Union Minister should tender an an apology.
“Moily and Congress should tender apology from Dhanoa for remarks against the Air Force chief. The Congress is now targeting defence forces for cheap politics,” BJP media in charge Anil Baluni said in a statement here.
On Friday, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley has lambasted the Congress party for ‘targeting’ the chief of Air Force Air Chief Marshal B S Dhanoa and suggested that the grand old party needs to ‘mature’. “…. by targeting the Chief of a Service in a political debate, the Congress Party has broken a long-standing unwritten rule of Indian politics. We keep our forces out of political discourse…..After having ruled this country for decades, the grand old party needs to mature,” Mr Jaitley wrote in a blog posted on Facebook.
