Rahul's twitter tirade: Modi's policies created space for terror

IANS  |  New Delhi 

Vice President on Wednesday attacked Prime Minister Modi on Twitter, questioning his policies and his pursuit of "short-term political gain" that he said "created space for terrorists" and cost strategically.

In a series of tweets, Gandhi imitated the Prime Minister's style of describing his achievements in mathematical equations and said the growing terrorism in Jammu and Kashmir was the fallout of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) aligning with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to form government in the state.

"Short-term political gain for Modi from the PDP alliance has cost massively. Modi's personal gain India's strategic loss + sacrifice of innocent Indian blood."

With the hashtag AmarnathTerrorAttack, the leader lashed out at the Prime Minister over the increasing number of terror incidents in Kashmir.

"Modi's policies have created the space for terrorists in Kashmir. Grave strategic blow for India," Gandhi said.

Gandhi's latest salvo against the Prime Minister came two days after seven pilgrims were killed when militants opened fire on a bus carrying Amarnath Yatra pilgrims in Jammu and Kashmir's Anantnag district.

The leader had called the attack a "grave and unacceptable security lapse" for which the Prime Minister needed to "accept responsibility and never allow it to happen again".
