Former Governor of Mizoram and Congress leader Aziz Qureshi has claimed that the ghastly terror attack in Pulwama that claimed the lives of 40 CRPF personnel was "planned" by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
"This was done with planning (Pulwama attack), but people understand everything. If PM Modi wants to anoint himself by sacrificing the lives of 42 jawans then people will not let that happen. (Plan karke aapne ye karwaya taki apko mauka mile, lekin janta samajhti hai. Agar Modi ji chahein ki 42 jawanon ki hatya karke, unki chitaon ki raakh se apna rajtilak kar lein, janta nahi karne degi)," he said.
Qureshi further said that the BJP has failed to name its candidate against Congress leader Digvijaya Singh from Bhopal Lok Sabha constituency in Madhya Pradesh as they are afraid of losing. "BJP leaders are afraid of losing against Singh and now they are finding it difficult to field a candidate from Bhopal."
Accusing BJP MPs and MLAs of increasing unemployment in the state, Qureshi said: "The impotent BJP leaders have no right to seek votes from people in Madhya Pradesh. They have shut down the factories, following which unemployment has increased."
Pakistan-based terror group Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) claimed responsibility for the attack that took place on February 14.
