New Delhi: In the second episode of Politically Fit, Congress rebel Shehzad Poonawalla, while explaining how biceps must be shaped at a gymnasium, deals with the issue of the opposition's response to India's anti-terror airstrike deep inside Pakistan.
Poonawalla is stunned at the fact that barely 48 hours after the opposition pledged to speak in one voice with the government on the issue of national security, Digvijaya Singh and Randeep Singh Surjewala of the Congress, Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee came up with statements that Pakistan happily lapped up.
Poonawalla says no opposition party can seek shelter behind the excuse that these were individual jarring notes struck by the leaders in their respective individual capacities. For, they spoke as though they were part of a chorus, and no action was taken by these parties for doubting the integrity of the IAF and Air Chief Marshal BS Dhanoa who had explained how India had succeeded in hitting the terrorist-training camps of Jaish-e-Mohammed led by Maulana Masood Azhar in Balakot of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan.
