Islamabad: The Narendra Modi regime is moving into a legal and political quagmire. The Indian opposition leader may seek a joint parliamentary investigation. If his close aides force him to resign, he will leak military secrets to the TV anchor.
Indian Congress President Sonia Gandhi said that the centre’s silence on the purported WhatsApp chats of Republic TV Editor-in-Chief Arnab Goswami about the Balakot airstrike was deafening.
“There have been very disturbing reports on how national security has been so thoroughly compromised,” Gandhi said, according to Indian news agency Press Trust of India.
According to Indian media reports, in the upcoming stormy budget session, the opposition parties are likely to demand a time-bound probe by a joint parliamentary commission into the scam.
Former Defense Minister AK Antony said that leaking official secrets is a crime of treason, and the persons involved must be punished and the prime minister must be honest.
Shankersinh Vaghela, the former chief minister of Gujarat, was also attacked in Narendra Modi for allegedly leaking news of Balakot’s strike and demanded that he resign on Republic Day.
Vaghela, who is also a close relative of Modi, said that Arnab Goswami and Partho Dasgupta of BARC should undergo the NARCO truth serum test to reveal more information.
Andy Vermaut, a member of the International League for the Defense of Freedom and Freedom (AIDL), and chairman of the PostVersa Fundamental Rights Branch, said that there is news that Modi sacrificed his soldiers for political purposes.
“I will therefore call for the resignation of Narendra Modi at all international forums. It is shameful for India and especially for Arnab Goswami… and we on the international level strongly condemn his actions.”
Melina, an international human rights activist from Netherlands said Indian state-sponsored terrorism in Pulwama attack had been fully exposed after disclosure of 500-page chat of Republic TV anchor that.
“This victory of election of Indian prime minister Narendra Modi is actually celebration of killing of your own soldiers,” said Ms Melina.
