To milk political advantage from the success of our soldiers is a dangerous practice. No way can it be denied that our soldiers fight for the whole country and not just for one political party! If a military operation has been projected as a political asset of one political party then it will send a wrong impression that the whole country is divided in terms of our defence policy. The whole country needs to be behind our soldiers during a war-like situation. The fact of the matter is that there is a clear difference between the government and the ruling party. The government of India and our defence force have to represent all the people of our country and not just one third of the electorates who exercised their franchise in favour of the ruling party.
