The Congress party on Thursday made a shocking statement communalising the Pulwama terror attack - adding yet another dimension in its insistence on attacking the Modi government over the gruesome act of terrorism.
A week after 40 jawans were martyred in a suicide bomb attack perpetrated by Pak-backed JeM terrorist in Jammu and Kashmir's Pulwama district, Congress targeted PM Modi with a shameful beef analogy, all in the garb of raising questions about the terrorist strike.
Taking a jibe at PM Modi, Haroon Yusuf, who is the current working president of Delhi Congress, tweeted, "Narendra Modi ji can trace three kg of beef but cannot trace 350 kg of RDX."
Earlier, Congress chief Rahul Gandhi politicised the terror attack by drawing a link to the government-to-government Rafale deal. He tweeted -
"The brave are martyred. Their families struggle.40 Jawans give their lives but are denied the status of “Shaheed”. While this man has never given & only taken. He’s gifted 30,000Cr of their money & will live happily ever after. Welcome to Modi’s NEW INDIA," read Rahul Gandhi's tweet.
That came just minutes after his close aide Randeep Surjewala addressed a press briefing on the Pulwama terror attack in which he termed the attack as a one perpetrated by a 'homegrown so-called terrorist' and attacked the Prime Minister over his activities on the day of the suicide-bombing, juxtaposing political jibes with questions on the lapses of security precautions during the movement of the 2500-jawan strong CRPF convoy on that fateful day.
"Questions must be asked as to who provided the kilograms of RDX and MI4 carbines, rocket launchers to the homegrown so called terrorists," the Congress leader said during the press briefing.
