Congress leaders have been either downplaying the Pulwama terror attack or floating bizarre conspiracy theories about the airstrikes conducted by the Indian Air Force within Pakistani territory in response to it.
A Goa Congress leader had asked for the proof of terror attack since the ‘body of the terrorist’ were not seen. He had even gone on to say that the Pulwama attack was carried out by Prime Minister Modi. Congress supporting abusive troll Sanjukta had also claimed that the Pulwama attack was an inside job.
Senior Congress leader Digvijay Singh had called the terror attack an ‘accident’. He said that reports in various foreign media regarding the “air strike” have created a doubt in our minds. This has made us question the credibility of the Indian government as well, he added. Kapil Sibal was also seen taking a similar stand.
The latest person from Congress to question the Indian Air Force and the government over the airstrikes is the Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh, Kamal Nath. Taking a leaf out of Digvijay Singh’s playbook, Nath said that disclosing the facts about the airstrikes are important as international news agencies are raising questions and creating doubts.
“I don’t understand what’s keeping the government away from disclosing these facts. When the government talks so much about it (air strikes), it should disclose everything,’’ he is reported to have said while talking to reporters in Bhopal.
“There were air strikes before, there were incidents before but no one asked for proof,’” he said while responding to questions on the doubts raised by opposition leaders in the country regarding the strikes conducted by the Indian Air Force.
It is notable here that Pakistani media, government-owned channels, and even their ministers have been quoting and hailing the statements made by Congress and the opposition parties after the Indian air strikes.
