New Delhi, Oct 4, 2016: Veteran social activist Anna Hazare on Tuesday disagreed with Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, who has asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi to give a “befitting reply” to Pakistan over the surgical strikes, saying it is not good to ask for proof of such actions and the army should not be mistrusted.

“I don’t know whether Kejriwal has said it or not. But we should not mistrust the army. I will condemn those who speak against army or doubt the army,” said Anna, who was in the capital to promote his upcoming biopic “Anna”.

“Before doing surgical strike, our military generals and other people must have done some planning. So why will they lie on it? We should trust them. This matter is of army, the country and its citizen. In such talks, it’s not good to justify someone on it.

Speaking in Jodhpur on Tuesday, Kejriwal urged Modi to give a “befitting reply” to Islamabad’s insistence that no such operation took place and New Delhi was lying about the September 28-29 surgical strikes.

Kejriwal’s comments followed a spate of aggressive criticism by the Bharatiya Janata Party, which accused the Delhi Chief Minister of raising doubts about the surgical strikes across the Line of Control (LoC).
