Lucknow: Former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister and Samajwadi Party President Akhilesh Yadav today accused the Prime Minister Narendra Modi of doing politics over the martyrs and said that while soldiers from all states were being killed in Jammu and Kashmir there were no casualties from Gujarat, drawing sharp reaction from political parties.
Akhilesh, speaking in Jhansi, raised questions on the central government’s response to the mutilation of the bodies of two soldiers on the Line of Control (LoC) by the Pakistan Army earlier this month.
“The Pakistani soldiers beheaded Indian soldiers, they mutilated their bodies so badly. No one is debating or discussing that. You didn’t tell which body parts were mutilated, you are not debating on that. We have seen martyrs from Bihar, UP, MP, Jharkhand and south Indian states. But why no martyrs from Gujarat?” Yadav said.
