Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that none should question or raise their fingers against the Indian army. He made this statement while addressing senior ministers during a meet he had chaired this morning.
The response by the Prime Minister comes in the wake of the TMC and other opposition parties questioning the presence of the army in West Bengal. There has been ruckus in both houses of Parliament over this issue.
The PM said in clear terms that it was wrong to question the Indian army. Clearly hitting out at Mamata Banerjee for raising the charges, Modi said that none should point a finger at the Indian army.
Meanwhile the army has also denied all charges made by the TMC and other opposition leaders. The army is not collecting toll at counters in West Bengal.
It is exercise being carried out for operational purposes, Major General Sunil Yadav, the general officer in command in the area said.
