Kakinada:  AP Pradesh Congress Committee president N. Raghuveera Reddy demanded the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to expel Karnataka former Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa from the party over his remarks that the surgical strikes would help them win 22 Lok Sabha seats in Karnataka state.

Mr Raghurveera Reddy told reporters here on Friday that India’s fight was against terrorism and not  against any country, In the fighting,  Indian soldiers from the three wings have sacrificed their lives in order to strengthen  India’s pride in the world.

He said that when CRPF personnel were killed in a suicide bomb attack at Pulwama, all parties including Congress and its president Rahul Gandhi clearly said that the country would back Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

He said that the country including Congress had been waiting for the release of IAF Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman. But, under these circumstances, the BJP was playing as a “political terrorism” game, trying to cash in on the surgical strikes for political gains. He said that with the “political terrorism concept”, Mr Yaddyurappa was trying to get soldiers’ sacrifices as vote bank.
