Amid political mudslinging over Army chief Bipin Rawat’s remarks that people interfering with anti-terror operations in Kashmir would be considered ‘anti-nationals’, Union Minister Prakash Javadekar on Friday asked the opposition to “keep pace” with democracy and “not politicise” the armed forces.“Opposition should not politicise everything. They have raised doubts on surgical strike which was never done before in history (of India). Now they are reacting and politicising an issue which they should not be doing. So I request them to keep pace with democracy and not politicise the military,” he told PTI.Read: General Rawat, hold your fire.
