On a day when Maoists kill 9 CRPF jawans, UPA hosts a gala dinner

On a day when nine CRPF jawans were martyred in an IED blast by the Naxals in Sukma, Chhattisgarh, the UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi hosted a gala dinner to show a united opposition in the upcoming General Assembly elections in 2019.

If that wasn’t insensitive enough, in a tweet condemning the attack, Gandhi blamed the ‘flawed policies’ which led to ‘deteriorating internal security situation’. Gandhi drew flak for his insensitivity from social media users.

Congress President was also called out for attempting to demoralise the CRPF jawans.

Film Actor Anupam Kher also called him out for trying to play politics on the martyrdom of CRPF jawans.

Hosting a gala dinner on a day when 9 jawans are killed by terrorists also appeared disrespectful to the martyrs.

This is not the first time Congress President has shown lack of respect and sensitivity towards those killed by terror attacks on Indian soil. Right after the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks, Gandhi was partying till wee hours in a farmhouse in Delhi outskirts.

Amongst those present at the ‘gala dinner’ were NCP Chief Sharad Pawar, RJD’s Tejashwi Yadav and his sister Misa Bharti, NC’s Omar Abdullah, HAM’s Jitan Ram Manjhi, DMK’s Kanimozhi and former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.
