Former Cricketer and Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu has been in the news a lot lately. The reason originates from his friendship with the former cricketer and current Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan. After the Pulwama attack, a huge war broke out on the internet between the two nations followed by which Sidhu gave a statement saying that terrorism has no religion and an entire country shouldn’t be blamed for the wrongdoings of a few cowards. The statement led to a huge uproar leading to him being removed from the show he was working on.
On Friday, he hit out at the Centre over the air strikes, saying that the government is unable to discern between trees and structures despite there being 48 satellites.
His remark came after images went viral of the area the IAF struck on 26th February, targeting terror launch pads in the region.
He further threw light on the serious aspersions on national security regarding the theft of certain documents related to the Rafale deal.
He took to Twitter to express his views:
World’s biggest defence deal file lost... Intelligence failure led to the martyrdom of 40 jawans... 1,708 terrorist acts... 48 satellites, but government not able to discern between trees and structures... Serious aspersions cast on national security. #IsTheCountryReallyInSafeHands?
The Central government had told the Supreme Court on Wednesday that certain documents pertaining to the Rafale fighter jets deal were stolen from the defence ministry and a probe has been initiated into the matter.
