Mounting a fresh attack, Congress today said Prime Minister Narendra Modi has failed to spell out the concrete steps to avert an Uri-type attack and that his election promises of tackling terrorism with an iron hand have turned out to be a “bluff”.
With the Prime Minister yesterday issuing a blunt warning to Pakistan that the Uri attack will not be forgotten and that the sacrifice of 18 soldiers will not go in vain, Congress chief spokesman Randeep Surjewala said Modi’s speech failed to convey message on the steps to be taken to tackle terror.
“PM Modi’s speech failed to convey message on the concrete steps to tackle terrorism and avert Uri type attacks. Election promises were bluff,” Surjewala said in a tweet.
Congress leader Digvijaya Singh said in a tweet, “..Even Modi’s supporters disappointed with his speech, social media users said, sowed Modi, reaped Manmohan.” Singh said Modi has “destroyed” Pakistan with verbal missiles.
In his first public address after last Sunday’s deadly attack by terrorists from across the border, Modi said yesterday in Kozhikode that India will mount an all out offensive to isolate Pakistan diplomatically to expose its activities in exporting terror, killing of innocent people and spilling blood.
Another Congress leader Manish Tewari raised questions on Modi government’s foreign policy over the presence of Russian troops in Pakistan.
“Russian troops are in Pakistan, China building CPEC Iran wants to join CPEC, Americans are in bed with Pak for Af-PAK which world does@narendramodi live in…,” Tewari tweeted.
