Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh, came to the rescue of Indian Army and advised him to cease interfering in the internal matter of India.
He then later slammed the Pakistan Army and said that the Indian Army is disciplined, unlike that of Pakistan.
“Your provocative statement will not work, nor will the Soldiers in our Army follow your divisive diktats”, he wrote.
Stop trying to interfere in India’s internal matter. And let me tell you that the Indian Army is a disciplined and nationalist force, unlike your Army @fawadchaudhry. Your provocative statement will not work, nor will the Soldiers in our Army follow your divisive diktats. @adgpi https://t.co/DAQfj0yqQ0

Union Minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal also hit out at the Minister and wrote, “Pak minister’s desperate tweet asking Punjabi Army Jawans to refuse duty in Kashmir exposes their frustration n nefarious designs”.
“Punjabis are patriots for whom NO sacrifice is too great when it comes to their nation. We don’t need lessons in line of duty from you.”, she added.
Ever since Centre has revoked Article 370, Pakistan has strongly criticised the move, and has downgraded the bilateral relations between the two countries.
