Rahul Gandhi chose to attack PM Modi when whole nation stands united against terrorism says Smriti Irani

Two days after suspected Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorists killed seven Amarnath Yatra pilgrims in Anantnag district of Jammu and Kashmir, Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday targeted the Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP)-led government at the Centre saying Prime Minister Narendra Modi's "policies have created space for terrorists in Kashmir". Congress Vice President had alleged that Mr. Modi's policies have created space for terrorists in Kashmir.Spokesperson of BJP Meenakshi Lekhi said the Congress Vice President has what she called an immature mind who does not know the history of the country.

"Short-term political gain for Modi from PDP alliance has cost India massively", the Gandhi scion tweeted today.

She also raked up the 1984 anti-Sikh riots to attack Rahul Gandhi over his accusation of "personal gain" at Modi, and said only those behind such riots would consider drawing "personal gain from the blood of innocents".

On Monday night, in a series of tweets following Amarnath terror attack, Gandhi had said, "This is a grave and unacceptable security lapse".

In his third tweet, Rahul is likely referring to the India-China border standoff in Sikkim, when he talks about "India's strategic loss".

The BJP reacted to the criticism by blaming the country's first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru, Rahul's great-grandfather, and the Gandhi family for all the problems in Kashmir.

On Monday, after the attack, Rahul said the PM "needs to accept responsibility" for the attack on the pilgrims.

"India will never be intimidated by these terrorist cowards", he added.

Rahul took to Twitter to condemn the recent terror attack.

"While the whole country is united at this dark hour, there are some discordance voices like Rahul Gandhi's. This is something that people who are not mature don't understand", BJP leader R.K. Singh told ANI.

The troops recovered one self-loading rifle along with three magazines and one pistol with one magazine.
