The Congress Party on Thursday criticized the Narendra Modi-led government for their failure to act against Pakistan for their steady attempts of infiltrations and ceasefire violations on Indian soil.
"The government needs to realise that any attempts on their behalf to threaten or scare Pakistan has not worked and that Pakistan will not change its attitude towards India. The Indian government needs to work diplomatically and solve this problem," Congress leader Sandeep Dixit told ANI here.
He also said that evidence against Pakistan is piling up and now, with the capture of a second terrorist, India has the perfect opportunity to put pressure on Pakistan in the international arena.
The Congress also came down heavily on Prime Minister Narendra Modi for not taking action or putting pressure on Pakistan.
"The capture of another Pakistani terrorist comes as a slap on the face of those who said that after Prime Minister Modi comes into power, terrorism will be on the backseat. There have been continuous ceasefire violations and infiltrations, and our Prime Minister is busy on foreign tours. He has not even said a word about it," Congress leader Sanjay Nirupam told ANI here.
He also slammed the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for attacking Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi who is on a two-day trip to Jammu and Kashmir visiting the areas that have been affected by Pakistan firing and shelling.
"While the Prime Minister remains silent on the matter, Rahul Gandhi has been meeting with the victims who have been suffering from so long and the BJP has a problem with that? If the BJP has some respect left, then they should answer Rahul's questions and make an effort to ease the trouble of these victims," Nirupam said.
A 22-year-old Pakistani terrorist was caught earlier today by the Indian army after a 20-hour-long gun battle with security forces in North Kashmir. This is the second capture of a Pakistani terrorist this month.
Pakistani terrorist Mohammad Naveed was captured earlier this month after an attack on a Border Security Force convoy in Udhampur, Jammu.
