AICC Vice President Rahul Gandhi slams PM over Amarnath attack
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi questioned the BJP-PDP coalition in Jammu and Kashmir.
NEW DELHI: Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi lashed out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday in the wake of the terror attack on Amarnath pilgrims, indicating that the Congress will sharpen its criticism over the Centre’s Kashmir policy.
Short term political gain for Modi from PDP alliance has cost India massively, Rahul tweeted.
The Congress vice president’s fresh criticism against the PM comes a day after Opposition parties asked the government to introspect and find out how despite intelligence inputs, terrorists could attack the pilgrims’ bus.
Gandhi, like many other Opposition leaders, questioned the BJP-PDP coalition in Jammu and Kashmir, the first such ruling alliance in the state.
Modi’s personal gain= India’s strategic loss + sacrifice of innocent Indian blood,Rahul tweets.
On Monday evening, a group of militants attacked the bus at Batengoo in Anantnag area, killing seven pilgrims. The bus was coming back from Baltal, one of the base camps of the Amarnath Yatra to Jammu. This was the first major attack on Amarnath pilgrims in 16 years.
