New Delhi: After killing two soldiers on LoC and being mutilated their bodies by Pakistan armed forces Congress has asked Modi government to 'wake up from its kip' and have appeal the PM Narendra Modi to take the opponent into confidence while framing a policy to tackle such incidents.
Taking gibe at PM Modi Congress asked Modi government when he will exhibit "his 56 inch chest" to pakistan. This government is responsibility to tackle the terrorism or pakistan in the country.
Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi also strongly condemned the killings and described them as a "barbaric and disgraceful act". "The government must move beyond platitudes and hold Pakistan to account," he tweeted.
Such cowardly act is totally unacceptable in a civilised society are not conducive to Pakistan's own interests and security.
said Congress senior spokesperson Anand Sharma.
Expressing concern over rise in terrorist incidents in the country post-September 2016 surgical strike, he attacked the BJP-led NDA government over its Kashmir policy saying "it has been a disaster marked by political opportunism".
AICC in-charge of communications Randeep Surjewala said 200 soldiers have been martyred in Jammu and Kashmir since May, 2014 and asked what this government was doing and added that the incident displays "lack of a credible political leadership in the country and absence of a policy or direction" in this regard.
"It really shows a serious lapse in national security on part of the present BJP Government. When will BJP government wake up from its kip . We have seen enough rhetoric and we have seen a lot of words. It is high time for a decisive policy and a decisive line to tackle terrorism, as also to tackle Pakistan," Surjewala said.
"Was 56-inch chest an empty 'jumla'? Pakistan has been attacking India with impunity. When is Prime Minister Modi planning to show off his '56-inch chest' to them and send them cowering?" he asked.
Citing figures, Surjewala claimed in Jammu and Kashmir alone in the last three years, 200 jawans made the supreme sacrifice and 91 civilians were killed, and Pakistan committed 1,343 ceasefire violations, besides 12 major terror attacks in Punjab and Jammu and Kashmir.
Sharma called on Modi to break his silence and spell out a policy on Kashmir after taking the opposition into confidence on the issue and on internal security to stop rising terrorist incidents sponsored from across the border.
