Shame on PM for shooting ad while CRPF personnel lost lives in Pulwama: Congress
New Delhi : The Congress party on Thursday attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi, questioning his authenticity and priority of his role. In a press conference, the party's spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said that PM was busy shooting for a promotional video in Jim Corbett national park, despite knowing that CRPF personnel have been martyred in Pulwama.
Mr Surjewala said, "When the whole country was mourning the loss of lives of our jawans in Pulwama Attack in the afternoon, PM Narendra Modi was busy shooting for a film in Jim Corbett park till evening. Is there any PM in the world like this? I have no words really.
"The nation was picking the pieces of its soldiers while the prime minister was giving speeches. The nation's stoves were closed but the prime minister was drinking tea in a guest house in Ramnagar."
Randeep Surjewala also condemned the Pulwama attack said, "The Pulwama terror attack is an attack on the integrity of our nation. During this hour of tragedy, the Congress party extends its support to our security forces."
At least 40 CRPF personnel had lost their lives after a Jaish-e-Mohammad militant struck his explosive laden truck into the convoy of CRPF personnel.
