The tussle between PM Modi and Rahul Gandhi is no new thing. We are habitual of it now.
The two of them are again engaged in a battle of words. This time around, it is Rahul Gandhi who has initiated it. Just In Reviews would like to keep you informed about this latest political controversy!
Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi this Wednesday came up with a scathing assault on Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the PDP-BJP driven government in J&K, just two days post a bus taking Amarnath pilgrims faced a terrorist attack that killed seven individuals.
“Modi’s policies have created space for terrorists in Kashmir. Grave strategic blow for India,”, is what Rahul expressed on his Twitter account.
The security forces presume that the operation was the brainchild of both Lashkar-e-Taiba and Hizbul Mujahideen. There were apparently three attackers, one of them, Ismail, came on a motorbike and fired two magazines on the pilgrims in the bus.
In a number of tweets, Rahul Gandhi emphasized on “India’s strategic loss” and “grave strategic blow” because of “PM Modi’s policies”. He held the PM responsible for the same.
In his second tweet, Rahul expressed by writing, “Short term political gain for Modi from PDP alliance has cost India massively.”
The yearly pilgrimage to Amarnath has begun on June 29 from Pahalgam and Baltal in the midst of tight security arrangements. More than 6,000 pilgrims were permitted to move towards the holy shrine from north Kashmir’s Baltal base camp while 5,000 bhakts began moving from the Pahalgam route. An aggregate of 1.5 lakh pilgrims had enlisted for the current year’s yatra. More than 40,000 CRPF staff were deployed to watch the route.
J&K tourism minister Priya Sethi told CNN-News18 channel that the assault could be a result of the repercussions of Hizbul leader Burhan Wani’s death commemoration this year.
This time around, the yatra was being held under the most astounding ever multi-level security setup as intelligence sources had cautioned that terrorists were wanting to target 100 policemen and the same number of pilgrims partaking in the Amarnath Yatra.
