Patna: In a jibe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Bihar Leader of Opposition and RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav on Wednesday said that demonetisation has “hit terrorism so hard that our 45 brave soldiers were martyred in last 30 days”.
“Modiji ki notebandi ne aatankavad ki aisi kamar todi ki vigat ek maah mein hamare 45 bahadur sainik shahid ho chuke hai (The noteban by Modi has broken the back of terrorism so badly that we lost 45 brave soldiers in just the last 30 days),” Tejashwi Yadav said in a tweet.
Tejashwi Yadav also targeted RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat for his “poor knowledge” about the Indian Army.
Bhagwat, on last Sunday, in Bihar’s Muzaffarpur district said the army will take six months to fully get ready to fight but the RSS has the capacity to form an army within three days to fight against the enemy on the border.
The Rashtriya Janata Dal leader also attacked JD-U supremo and Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar for “neglecting two brave soldiers from Bihar” who were killed in a Kashmir attack.
“Neither were their bodies received by a Minister nor did any Minister attend their last rites,” he said.
