NEW DELHI: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday accused the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led Government of indulging in dual standards by allowing Pakistan’s Joint Investigation Team (JIT) to probe the Pathankot terror attack, saying that on one hand the Centre preaches ‘Bharat mata ki jai’ and on the other they allow ISI on Indian soil.
Kejriwal also trained guns at Prime Minister Narendra Modi and asked as to what was the deal between the latter and his Pakistan counterpart Nawaz Sharif.
“Muh mein Ram bagal mein churi. BJP/RSS vale muh se “Bharat mata ki jai” bolte hain aur ISI ko bulakar Bharat Mata ki peeth mein chura bhok dete hain (On one hand they say ‘Bharat mata ki jai’ and on the other they call ISI and back stab ‘Bharat Mata’),” the Delhi Chief Minister tweeted.
“Modi ji ne ISI ko bulakar Bharat Mata ke saath bahut bada dhoka kiya hai. Pata nahin Modi ji aur Nawaz ke beech kya deal hui hai (Modi ji has betrayed the nation by inviting ISI. Don’t know whjat is the deal between Modi ji and Nawaz),” he said in another tweet.
On Friday, the JIT returned to Pakistan after their five-day visit to India during which all evidence pertaining to the January 2016 attack was shared with them, including the DNA of four terrorists, their identities as well as call records showing involvement of Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM).
The JIT had on Thursday examined 13 witnesses, including former Gurdaspur Superintendent of Police Salwinder Singh.
According to Pakistani media reports, Pakistani investigators were allowed to enter the Indian air force base from narrow adjacent routes instead of the main entrance and the duration of the visit was just 55 minutes, enough to take a mere walk through the military facility.
Pakistani terrorist attacked the Pathankot Air Force Station in January this year, in which four attackers and two security forces personnel were killed in the initial battle, with an additional security force member dying from injuries hours later.
