The Congress on Sunday denounced the government over a terror attack on a CRPF camp in Pulwama district of Jammu and Kashmir, saying it was a sign of failure of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s foreign policy. Party spokesperson Sushmita Dev said here that such recurring attacks send a message that anti-national forces do not fear India.

During elections, Modi says India is a strong nation. But the number of casualties in ceasefire violations was going up, Dev said at a press conference. “It is a sign of failure of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s foreign policy,” she said, adding the Congress wanted him to take strong steps to deter India’s external and internal enemies.

The Congress, Dev said, will support him in steps he takes for safety and security of the country. Two heavily armed militants stormed the 185th battalion camp of the Central Reserve Police Force in Awantipora in Pulwama around 2 am, killing a personnel and leaving two others injured.

        I entirely agree that NDA govt. has totally messed up the Kashmir issue. This 70 year dispute cannot be solved with surgical strikes or with any other muscular policy. This problem needs deep commitment to understand the past mistakes and devise a new practical policy which would satisfy the egos of the two countries leadership. In this respect the UPA is much better to manage this problem if not to solve it altogether.

            Most of the recent JIHADI attack in Kashmir has been against CRPF. The very fact that JIHADIS dare NOT attack Army Camps indicate success of Indian Armed Forces. ........ CRPF should be withdrawn from Kashmir so that they stop being the easy targets of JIHADIS. ...................... Else YOUNG IPS OFFICERS should be posted to Command CRPF in Kashmir Valley.
