Congress on Wednesday trained guns at the BJP-led NDA government at Centre over three terror attacks in three days and slammed Prime Minister Narendra Modi over his silence saying he was busy in replying congratulatory message.
In a post on X, formerly Twitter, Rahul Gandhi said, “While Narendra Modi is busy replying to congratulatory messages, is not even hearing the screams of the families of the pilgrims who were brutally killed in Jammu and Kashmir.”
“There have been 3 separate terrorist incidents in the last 3 days in Reasi, Kathua and Doda but the Prime Minister is still engrossed in celebrations. The country is demanding answers – why are those planning terrorist attacks not caught in the BJP government?” Rahul Gandhi said targeting the Prime Minister.
Meanwhile, Congress leader Pawan Khera also issued a detailed statement targeting Modi over.his silence and said, “Even as Modi and his NDA government was swearing 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 nine 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 pointed out that not even innocent children were spared.
“Did the victims not deserve a word of sympathy from the self-proclaimed ‘divine’ Prime Minister?” Khera asked.
He also pointed out that another terror attack took place in Kathua, where one civilian was injured and on June 11, six security personnel and a civilian were injured in an encounter with terrorists at Chhatrakala, Doda, Jammu.
Khera, who is also chairman of media and publicity department of the party said that according to officials, terrorists opened fire on a joint checkpoint manned by the 4 Rashtriya Rifles and police in the Chattergalla area along the Bhadarwah-Pathankot.
Slamming the government, the Congress leader said, “A spate of terror attacks has gripped Jammu and Kashmir in the past three days, whilst Prime Minister Modi is busy posting responses to congratulatory tweets by Pakistani leaders – Nawaz Sharif and Pakistan Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif. Why has he not spoken a single word on the dastardly terror attacks? Why has he maintained a stoic silence?”
He also said that BJP’s loudmouth chest-thumping and hollow claims of return of peace and normalcy in Jammu and Kashmir have been “thoroughly exposed”.
“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,” he said.
Firing salvos at the government, Khera said is it not a fact that Pir Panjal Range – Rajouri and Poonch has now become a hotbed of cross-border terrorism in the past 2 years, as over 35 soldiers have been martyred, following terror attacks in these areas in the past two years, alone? “And now terror has also spread to the neighbouring Reasi district, which was considered relatively peaceful?” Khera questioned.
He also questioned that is it not true that at least 19 previous major terror attacks have taken place on our Security Installations, under Modi government, that include CRPF camps, Army camps, Air Force Station and Military Stations- Pulwama, Pampore, Uri, Pathankot, Gurdaspur, Amarnath Yatra attack, Sunjwan Army Camp, Poonch terror attacks (April & December 2023) where scores of our precious lives have
been lost.

 

 

 

“Is it not true that Modi government invited the rogue ISI to investigate the Pathankot attack in 2016? Is it not true that government has endangered our National Security, even as 2,262 terror attacks in J&K, in which, 363 civilians and died and 596 Jawans have been martyred?” Khera asked.
He also added tglhat the Congress stands united with the nation in fighting terrorism.
The remarks from Congress leaders came in the wake.of three terror attack in Jammu and Kashmir in last three days.
