Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday has once again hit out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in the wake of the terrorist attack on Amarnath Yatra pilgrims on 10th July. According to ANI, he has blamed PM Modi’s policies and said that it has created a space for terrorists in Kashmir and was a grave strategic blow for India. “Short term political gain for Modi from PDP alliance has cost India massively,” Rahul said. Further in his speech, he stated that PM Modi’s ‘personal gain is equal to India’s strategic loss plus sacrifice of innocent Indian blood’.
Hours after the horrific terror attack on Amarnath Yatra Pilgrims took place in Anantnag district on south Kashmir on Monday, Rahul lashed out at the Central government and stated that it was a ‘grave and unacceptable security lapse.’ “India will never be intimidated by these terrorist cowards. This is a grave and unacceptable security lapse. The PM needs to accept responsibility and never allow it to happen again,” Rahul had tweeted earlier.
Not just Rahul, but several other leaders of Congress have held the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led Central government responsible for the incident. Targeting the government, Congress chief spokesperson Randeep S Surjewala had said the attack was a matter of serious security lapse on the part of the government.
