Congress questions PM Modi's 'silence' on terror attacks in J&K

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi questioned PM Narendra Modi's silence over separate terror incidents in Jammu and Kashmir that took place in the past three days. He said that the country is demanding answers as to why those plotting against the country are not being caught under the BJP rule. 

Criticising the PM Modi, Rahul Gandhi said, ‘Narendra Modi is busy responding to congratulatory messages and cannot even hear the cries of the families of the devotees who were brutally killed in Jammu and Kashmir’. He further said, ‘There have been 3 separate terror incidents in Reasi, Kathua and Doda in the last 3 days but the Prime Minister is still busy celebrating’. This came after PM Modi attended the oath-taking ceremony of TDP supremo and Andhra CM Chandrababu Naidu.

Meanwhile, Congress leader Pawan Khera also slammed PM Modi for busy celebrating and ignoring the terror attacks. Khera said, ‘A spate of terror attacks has gripped Jammu and Kashmir in the past three days, whilst PM Modi is busy posting responses to congratulatory tweets by Pakistani leaders - Nawaz Sharif and Pak PM Shahbaz Sharif’. He said the BJP's chest-thumping and ‘hollow’ claims of return of peace and normalcy in Jammu and Kashmir have been thoroughly exposed by the three terror attacks in the region in the past three days. He stated, ‘The fact that BJP did not even bother to fight elections in Kashmir valley is a testament to the fact that their 'Naya Kashmir' policy is an abject failure’.

Pawan Khera said, ‘Shri Narendra Modi and his NDA Government was being sworn in, and heads of states were visiting the country, India suffered a horrific and gruesome terror attack in Reasi district of Jammu and Kashmir, where 9 precious lives were lost and at least 33 people were injured, when terrorist fired upon a bus filled with pilgrims from Shiv Khori Temple to Katra.’ He asked, ‘Did the victims not deserve a word of sympathy from the self-proclaimed 'divine' prime minister’.
