Parrikar should desist from verbal diarrhea: Goa Congress

Panaji, Oct 13 (IANS) A day after the Congress in Delhi accused Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar of politicising the surgical strikes across the Line of Control (LoC), the party’s Goa state unit has asked Parrikar to desist from “verbal diarrhea”.

“Manohar Parrikar is a Defence Minister with verbal diarrhea. He should speak less, act more, respect the forces and equip them. Our armed forces are strong enough to hit hard. Don’t undermine them with your political pitch,” Goa Congress spokesperson Sunil Kawthankar said in a statement.

Speaking in Mumbai on Wednesday, Parrikar said there were no surgical strikes during previous Congress regimes.

“I have been the Defence Minister for two years. From whatever I have known, there is no surgical strike from previous years. What they are quoting are actions taken by border action teams. These are common actions across the globe and by the Indian Army,” Parrikar was quoted in the media as saying.

Kawthankar, however, claims that the former Goa Chief Minister had reduced the Indian governance to the petty level of ‘nukkad’ politics.

“He shouldn’t reduce Indian governance to ‘nukkad’ politics of Goa and act as a statesman,” Kawthankar added.
