Addressing a rally at the Jantar Mantar here at the end of his Kisan Yatra across election-bound Uttar Pradesh, Rahul said Modi was taking political mileage from the surgical strikes the Army conducted in Pakistani territory and the sacrifices of soldiers in Jammu and Kashmir.
"Unki dalali kar rahe ho... Yeh bilkul galat hai... Hindustan ki sena ne Hindustan ka kaam kiya, aap apna kaam keejiye... (You are trading on them. This is totally wrong... The Indian Army did its job for India, you do your work)," he thundered.
However, his comments evoked sharp criticism from the Bharatiya Janata Party.
