Congress leader Salman Khurshid on Sunday tweeted that .”Many kudos for Wing Commander Abhi Varthaman, the face of India’s resistance to enemy aggression. Great poise and confidence in face of adversity.
We are proud that he received his wings in 2004 and matured as a fighter pilot during UPA (rule)”.
But it does not go well with theTwitter users . Some of them mercilessly trolled him for going to great lengths just for finding a Congress connection to Wing Commander Varthaman’s achievements. Whereas others simply asked him to refrain from politicizing the issue.
“What next? Wing Cmdr Abhinandan was born in 1983, so all credit to Indira Gandhi for his birth?” asked columnist Shefali Vaidya in a tweet.
Another user, Pranjali Singh, sarcastically appealed for everybody to “come together and seek the Nobel Peace Prize” for Mr Khurshid.
The Congress leader, however, remained undaunted. A few hours later, he posted a tweet condemning BJP politicans for “encashing national gratitude for political gain”.
Right after the release of the IAF pilot was first announced on Friday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had hinted that the “pilot project” was completed and a real one would soon follow.
Opposition leaders responded with appeals that the ruling BJP refrain from politicizing an episode that put Indian Air Force officers into such a dire situation.
So the cold war is full-fledged. Only time will reveal whether the promotion of election will get it’s outcome through all these
