The man who commanded a battalion in operation ‘Kargil’ and was awarded the ‘Vishisht Seva Medal’, the man who never cried on a war front has cried on national television as he feel pained by the ‘cheap politics’ of Kejriwal-led AAP government as it opposed the hoisting of India’s National Flag on Indian soil in central universities.
“I did not cry even at the time when my elder brother Raman Bakshi became a Martyr in 1965 India-Pakistan war, as being a soldier and a true nationalist ‘we’ soldiers are prepared to give our lives up for the nation”, cried Major General (Rtd) Gagandeep Bakshi. “But today’s incident has made me cry where Delhi Chief Minister is demoralizing our brave soldiers, who die for TriColour”, adds General Bakshi.
Men like general Bakshi, who shed blood for the country and never asked for anything in return should be thanked enough for their sacrifices. Politicians like Arvind Kejriwal, who had earlier supported the anti-national elements and now objected to hoisting the National flag and questioned its timings, should be punished strictly.
“When agitating students of JNU called Maqbool Bhat and Afzal Guru martyrs and even demanded the breaking up of India, why did not Arvind Kejriwal raise his voice?”
The dirty politics and debate over the issue of “Tricolour” being hoisted in the central universities, made the Army Veteran to shed tears.
With hash tag #TricolourForUnity, social media tweeter also felt reasonable:
“Hamare jawano ki kadar kariye jo shaheed ho gaye hain”, Major Gen (Retd) Bakshi
“I am deeply pained by the dirty polity of Delhi CM. In armed forces we die for the flag”, Major Gen (Retd)
“Tragedy of my nation, I see tears in eyes of a brave soldier like you”, Smriti Irani to ” Major Gen (Retd)
To his tweets, many other tweeted:
“Shame on Arvind Kejriwal, as being the Chief Minister of Delhi, he is playing dirty politics. His brain-dead remarks on the JNU issue, made my blood boil.”
“I cannot grasp the fact that how can an Indian disagree with this decision. Our country’s national flag is our pride”
“Most sacred symbol of one nation is its National Flag. Hoist the tricolour anywhere, everywhere, at any time with the greatest reverence and respect”.
Politicians like Kejriwal eat food grown by Indian farmers and sleeps fearlessly because of the brave soldiers of the nation, should think twice before saying anything against the nation, national flag or those brave soldiers.
