Amaravati (AP): Union Home Minister and senior BJP leader Rajnath Singh Wednesday lashed out at the Congress and the TDP for "hurting" the morale of the armed forces by casting aspersions on the surgical strikes on the terror camps in Pakistan.

Addressing an election rally in support of the BJP at Avanigadda in Krishna district in Andhra Pradesh, he said the Indian Air Force stormed into Pakistan and conducted surgical strikes after the Pulwama terror attack in which over 40 CRPF personnel lost their lives.

People like Nirav Modi and Vijay Mallya cheated banks and royally roamed in the country without any fear. Only after the BJP came to power, they fled the country. But we will not leave them, he added.

State BJP president Kanna Lakshmi Narayana, BJP national secretary Sunil Deodhar and other senior leaders attended.
