Congress Vice President on Monday reacted to the attack on Amarnath Yatra pilgrims in Jammu and Kashmir’s Anantnag and said that it was a “grave and unacceptable security lapse.”

“India will never be intimidated by these terrorist cowards. This is a grave and unacceptable security lapse. The PM needs to accept responsibility and never allow it to happen again,” Rahul Gandhi was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.

A bus carrying the pilgrims was attacked by terrorists at around 8:20 pm. Seven people have been killed in the incident so far and several others are injured.

PM Narendra Modi, Congress president Sonia Gandhi and Defense Minister Arun Jaitley have also condemned the attack. PM Modi took to Twitter and said that he had spoken with J&K CM Mehbooba Mufti and Governor NN Vohra.

Meanwhile, CRPF in a statement has said that the bus was not registered with shrine board. The injured have been taken to a hospital and security arrangement across the valley has been tightened.

Only GANDHI family can provide the solution as historically their forefathers were associated with the KASHMIR issue from the very inception . In any case MODI JI like Sardar Patel would not be considered worthy 6 experienced of handling this issue successfully

              Thanks for showing your intelligence by barking at wrong tree. The issue is not who is advising because advise is same everywhere, point is any one ready to listen to it.

                    Muslim terrorism sponsoring Congress party and Muslim terrorism supporters are responsible for this. Yatra should be done without security without these Muslims terrorism and genocide of Hindus by Muslim in Kashmir. Muslim terrorists against Yatra should vanish.
