New Delhi: Reacting strongly to Congress chief Rahul Gandhi’s remarks that Indian Army had conducted three surgical strikes when the UPA government was in power, Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Sunday accused the party of “trying to hide the valour of Indian armed forces”.

“Rahul says three surgical strikes happened during Manmohan Singh’s regime. Why is he revealing that now? Why wasn’t it told earlier? Why was Congress Hide Valour of Our Armed Forces? Why were they trying to hide the valour of our armed forces? People have a right to know achievements of Army.” Singh said during a rally in Rajasthan’s Bansur district.

On Saturday, Gandhi claimed that three surgical strikes were carried out during former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's tenure but it wasn't publicised as the "Army wanted it to be a secret".

Addressing a gathering at Udaipur in poll-bound Rajasthan, Gandhi had said, "It wasn't just PM Narendra Modi who carried out surgical strike against Pakistan in 2016. Did you know that there were three such strikes during Manmohan Singh's tenure? When Army approached Mr Singh and said that we need to retaliate against Pakistan, they also said that the force wants it to be a secret."

Singh also accused the Congress of creating "crisis of distrust". “Cong created "crisis of distrust" in politics. There is difference in their words and deeds,” he said.
