Akhilesh Yadav's uncle Ram Gopal Yadav has gone out to make a controversial statement, playing the politics of Pulwama by calling it a 'conspiracy' (sajish) and pinning the blame on the government.
The Samajwadi Party leader cited how there were no checks between Jammu and Kashmir and that the CRPF jawans were 'simply sent in buses' despite their demand for an Aircraft for transit.
He said, "The paramilitary forces are unhappy with the government, they killed the jawans for votes. There was no checking between Jammu and Kashmir, the CRPF jawans were simply sent in buses. This is a conspiracy when the government will change this will be investigated. That's when the big people will be stuck.
This sounds familiar to the remarks made by the Congress MP from Karnataka, BK Hariprasad, who earlier this month called Pulwama terror attack, a 'fixed match' between PM Narendra Modi and Pakistan.
"Ravi Shankar Prasad should clarify whether there was any match-fixing between Pakistan and Narendra Modi. Or else, without their knowledge, this Pulwama instance would not have taken place. If you look at the chain of events that have taken place after Pulwama, it looks like Narendra Modi had a match fixing with Pakistan people," he told ANI.
A convoy carrying CRPF jawans from Jammu to Srinagar on February was struck with an IED blast. The responsibility behind the attack was claimed by Pakistan-based terror outfit Jaish-e-Mohammed.
The politics over the Pulwama terror attack began days after the incident, with Congress working president in Delhi, Haroon Yusuf questioning as to how the government couldn't trace the explosives.
