Congress Leader does not want Kargil Divas to be Commemorated

Expelled Bhujan Samaj Party leader Rashid Alvi joined Congress Party saying he wanted to strengthen the country's secular forces. This was in April 2004. The colour of politics is brighter for him than any feeling of nationalism or patriotism.
It is politics of the lowest kind. Mr Rashid Alvi, Congress stated that there was no need to commemorate India's victory in Kargil on 26 Jul 09 as it was an intelligence failure of the BJP Govt which resulted in the battle. Mr Alvi needs to remember that every war can be traced to a failure of intelligence or government policy.
Soldiers do not think who is running the country's govt when going to battle. Their only concern is to destroy the intruder in the homeland. Why must hte simple simple soldier be dragged into competitive politics?
Imagine a country not celebrating its greatest miltary victory in East Pakistan in 1971, because it will annoy Pakistan! The WW II Allies have still not stopped celebrating their victory over Germany, despite the fact that they are friends now.
"Come on Congress Party keep us soldiers out of your petty politics and give a public rap to Rashid Alvi." stated Lt Gen S K Bahri, who sent out a similar letter to editors of the Indian Express, The Week, The Times of India.
