Richa Chadha, a Bollywood actor, has been accused of insulting the Army in her latest Twitter post, in which she responded to Northern Army Commander Lt General Upendra Dwivedi’s statement that the Indian Army is ready to execute orders such as retaking Pakistan-occupied Kashmir.
‘Galwan says hello,’ the actor tweeted, sharing a post about the announcement.
“Dishonorable tweet. Should be withdrawn as soon as possible. Insulting our armed forces is not acceptable “Manjinder Singh Sirsa of the BJP tweeted.
Many social media users chastised the actor for making fun of the Indian Army and downplaying the sacrifices of the jawans in the 2020 Galwan clash between India and China.
Lt General Upendra Dwivedi’s statement on Tuesday came in response to defence minister Rajnath Singh’s earlier claim that India’s goal is to reclaim Pakistan-occupied Kashmir. “In Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh, we have only just begun our development journey.” “When we reach Gilgit and Baltistan, we will have accomplished our goal,” the defence minister stated.
In response to this statement, Lt General Upendra Dwivedi stated that the military is always ready to carry out the government’s orders. “As for the Indian Army, it will carry out any order issued by the Government of India.” “Whenever such orders are issued, we will always be prepared,” he said.
