Congress leader Rahul Gandhi had launched a fierce attack on Modi over alleged politicisation of Army's surgical strikes, accusing him of doing "dalali" (trade) over the blood shed by Indian soldiers.

Addressing a rally in New Delhi at the end of his Kisan Yatra across election-bound Uttar Pradesh, he also accused Modi of not fulfilling his promises to people made during the 2014 Lok Sabha polls.

In response, Bharatiya Janata Party president Amit Shah launched a scathing attack on Rahul Gandhi saying with his remark, the Congress second-in-command had crossed all limits and has insulted the Indian Army.

Shah also asked Rahul to focus on issues pertaining to "Alu ki factory" (potato factory) instead of making a statement on such sensitive issues.
