    Lucknow: Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav on Friday told the Modi government not to pretend to be the Indian Army and said that governments which say they can't be questioned are dangerous.

    "The sacrifices of our armed forces should never be questioned. To ask questions to politicians in a democracy is our fundamental right. This government needs to stop pretending to be the Indian Army," the former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister tweeted.

    "Politicians who say they cannot be questioned are dangerous," he tweeted.

    His remarks came soon after Prime Minister Narendra Modi accused the opposition of insulting the defence forces and being the "natural habitat of terror apologists" and questioning the armed forces.

    Modi's statement came in response to Congress President Rahul Gandhi's chief advisor Sam Pitroda's remarks that incidents like the Pulwama terror attack "happen all the time" and that the United Progressive Alliance government also could have sent planes across the border after the 2008 Mumbai terror attack but "that is not the right approach".

    "Loyal courtier of Congress' royal dynasty admits what the nation already knew -- Congress was unwilling to respond to forces of terror. This is a New India -- we will answer terrorists in a language they understand and with interest," Modi tweeted.
