Rahul Gandhi hits again at Prime Minister Narendra Modi by asking ,by seeking an explanation on why the then NDA government released JeM chief Masood Azhar from jail.
Masood Azhar was released from Indian Jail in exchange of the passengers of the hijacked Indian Airlines plane in 1999.Now,subsequently the Congress chief asked PM “how Masood Azhar was sent back to Pakistan and who allowed him to escape”.
Gandhi’s attack on the Modi government on national security comes amid an escalating war of words between the BJP and the Congress over India’s air strikes on terror camps in Pakistan after a suicide bomber attack on a CRPF convoy killed 40 jawans in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama.He also asserted that Congress would not bow down to terror.
“Some days ago CRPF people were killed in Pulwama. I have a small question to the prime minister. Who killed these CRPF jawans? What is the name of the chief of of JeM?…Masood Azhar,”Rahul said in a rally in Karnataka.
“Modiji makes me understand who sent Masood Azhar from India’s jail to Pakistan. Didn’t the BJP government send this person from India’s jail to Pakistan.
Didn’t the BJP government send this person from India’s jail to Pakistan?”Didn’t you send (then Union minister) Jaswant Singh and your National Security Advisor (Ajit Doval) on the same flight? Did you forget that your (party’s)government sent this person from India’s jail to Kandahar(in Afghanistan)?Why are you not speaking about it in your speeches? Why are you not saying that the person who carried out the bomb blast on CRPF, who killed CRPF jawans was sent back to Pakistan by the BJP government?”Rahul asked.
