BJP clarifies row over Center decision to extinguish Amar Jawan Jyoti
What did the central government say?
Central government sources refuted all the reports saying, “The flame of Amar Jawan Jyoti is not being extinguished. It will be mixed in the flame of the National War Memorial. It is very strange that the flame of Amar Jawan Jyoti is not being extinguished in 1971 and other wars.” I paid homage to the soldiers who made the sacrifice, but no one’s name is mentioned there.
BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra also denied the news related to Amar Jawan Jyoti. He wrote on his Twitter, “Various misconceptions are being spread about the flame of Amar Jawan Jyoti, but the truth is that the flame of Amar Jawan Jyoti is not extinguished. It is being merged with the flame at the National War Memorial. Is.”
Sambit Patra further wrote that “It is ironic that those who did not build a National War Memorial for 7 decades, are now creating a ruckus on paying a lasting and proper tribute to our martyrs.”
Sambit Patra wrote in his other tweet, “The names of Indian soldiers who lost their lives in 1971 and before and after wars are kept in the National War Memorial, so there must be a light to give to the Indian soldiers who lost their lives in the war.” True ‘tribute’.”
Opposition leaders criticized the central government
The move on the merger of Amar Jawan Jyoti was widely criticized by the opposition leaders of the central government. Attacking the central government, Rahul Gandhi had said in a tweet, “It is very sad that the Amar Jyoti, which used to burn for our brave soldiers, will be extinguished today. Some people cannot understand patriotism and sacrifice – no problem. …we will burn the Amar Jawan Jyoti once again for our soldiers!”
At the same time, RJD tweeted from its Twitter account and wrote, “What to do with the “Amar Jawan Jyoti” burning for 50 years at India Gate, which has ended the “flame” of the lives of crores of youth / businessmen due to the craze like demonetisation- Dena? These people have come to power to destroy the constitution and history. Now the victims are devotees.”
