Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath's terming the Indian Army as “Modiji ki Sena” has elicited all round condemnation from the Opposition,  which has termed it an "insult" to the Indian armed forces and demanded that the CM apologise.

The Congress said that the Indian Army is “not the private army” of Prime Minister Modi, while the Trinamool Congress said that the Indian army is an asset of the entire nation and “not a cassette of the BJP" and the entire nation should stand up to reject the statement.

On Sunday, Adityanath at an election rally in Ghaziabad, while attacking the Opposition, alleged that while the Congress “fed terrorists with biryani”, “Modi ji’s sena fed the terrorists with bullets and bombs”.

Congress spokesperson Priyanka Chaturvedi said, in a sarcastic note, that the BJP has done the "namkaran" or official naming of the Indian army and demanded that Adityanath must apologise.

In another taunt, she said that terrorist Masood Azhar’s “safe return to terroristan” was ensured by the “stellar role” played by current National Security Advisor Ajit Doval during the hijacking of flight IC814 in 1999. The Jaish-e-Mohammad chief, whose outfit is behind the February 14 Pulwama terror attack in which 40 CRPF men were killed, and other terror attacks in India, was released in exchange for passengers of the airplane in Kandahar.

Trinamool supremo and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee also slammed the UP Chief Minister, saying "Such blatant personalisation and usurping of our beloved Indian Army is an insult and a humiliation".
