Amarnath terror attack, Rahul Gandhi, Narendra Modi, PM Modi, Kashmir, Amarnath yatra, Rahul Gandhi also claimed that the BJP entered into an alliance with the PDP in Jammu-Kashmir for “short term political gain” and it has “cost India massively.”

Continuing his attack at Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday’s Amarnath yatra terror attack, Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi alleged that his policies have created space for terrorists in Kashmir.

“…Grave strategic blow for India,” a tweet from the official Twitter account of the Office of Rahul Gandhi read. Rahul Gandhi also claimed that the BJP entered into an alliance with the PDP in Jammu-Kashmir for “short term political gain” and it has “cost India massively.”

In a series of tweets, Rahul Gandhi alleged that many lives were lost in PM Modi’s pursuit for “personal gain”. “Modi’s personal gain= India’s strategic loss + sacrifice of innocent Indian blood,” he said.

On Monday, Rahul Gandhi asked PM Modi to accept responsibility for the “grave and unacceptable security lapse” during the Amarnath yatra. He went on to say that “India will never be intimidated by these terrorist cowards”.

“I share the pain & anguish of families who lost loved ones in the terror attack on innocent Amarnath Yatris today,” he tweeted.

Seven Amarnath pilgrims were killed when the bus in which they were travelling in was attacked by suspected LeT militants. The bus was not part of the security convoy that accompany the yatra vehicles.

        Is there any sense in Rahul's statement ? Terrorists attacks have been happening for several years now. What connection it has with PM Modi or the BJP-PDP Govt ? As everyone knows, Jammu voted for BJP and Kashmir voted for PDP and the choice was either a popular rule or President's Rule. If they had not come together, the alienation would have been greater. What personal gain for Mr Modi in this ? Rahul's utterances were comical earlier. Now, it has become nonsensical.

          I think RG is reading a script written by his crony, even without understanding the national causes. The common men understand that India is at war with Pakistan and any patriot has to understand the sensitivities of your statement. Possibly RG is trying to be "Relevant" in this Modi Era. You are "No match" for this political games.

              Real Indians have to learn from Isrealis that when it comes to terrorist attacks all Israelis speak with one voice. Look how shameful it is when Indians speak with different voices. It is nothing but shame.

                Really very sad Mr. Rahul Gandhi, seems that there is problem with your thinking process or you people are still under the impact of the losses your party has faced. Still it will be great if Congress review on its leadership. Party is just going to collapse if Mr. Rahul Gandhi is not reigned in time. Sad to comment on you.
