Chief Minister Narenda Modi on Sunday came down heavily on the UPA government and alleged it was “using” three chiefs of Indian armed forces for taking action against Pakistan with regard to 26/11 attacks on Mumbai.

Addressing a public meeting after unveiling the statue of Sarvodaya leader Jayprakash Narayan, Modi alleged that vote bank politics prevented the UPA govt in taking action against the neighbouring Pakistan and that is why it is using army to take action against Pakistan.

Why political leadership is so weak that it has to ask army chiefs to talk of options to strike against Pakistan? Modi said. It is the job of political leadership to talk on strike on Pakistan and for the first time after independence, chiefs of the three wings of armed wings are being used for making attacks on Pakistan, Modi said.

Modi said that if central government grants permission to speak on its behalf, “I am ready to take on Pakistan.”
