The extremely inappropriate conduct by members of the Congress party comes at a time when its party president has been busy spreading fake news about Prime Minister Modi’s conduct in the aftermath of the terror attack.
Rahul Gandhi had falsely claimed that Narendra Modi was busy shooting a film at the Jim Corbett National Park three hours after the terror attack when in reality, it was him who could be seen dancing and celebrating merely hours after the attack in a video shared by the official Twitter handle of the Congress party. The video was later deleted.
The conduct of the Congress party after the terror attack has been particularly disturbing. Delhi Congress working president Haroon Yusuf has used the Pulwama terrorist attack to rake up the beef issue. Referring to the RDX which was used by the terrorist to carry out the attack on the CRPF soldiers, Yusuf tauntingly said that the Prime Minister could trace 3 kg of beef but could not trace 350 kg of RDX which was allegedly used in the Pulwama terrorist attack.
Earlier, while addressing a presser, Congress spokesperson and senior leader Randeep Surjewala insulted the sacrifice of the martyred soldiers by referring to the terrorist who killed them as ‘home-grown so-called terrorist’. Surjewala also called into question the functioning of the Armed forces when he called the terrorist as ‘Home-grown’, providing an alibi to Pakistan.
