All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief Asaduddin Owaisi on Saturday attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the Pulwama terror attack and asked if the prime minister had eaten 'beef biryani and slept', while the attack took place. "Indian Air Force dropped bombs in Balakot. On this, BJP chief Amit Shah said that 250 terrorists were dead and Home Minister Rajnath Singh said that NTRP tapped 300 cell phones," Asaduddin Owaisi said.
"You can see that 300 cell phones were there in Balakot, but you failed to see how 50 kg RDX was moved to Pulwama under your nose, Owaisi said. "I want to ask PM Modi and Rajnath Singh whether they ate beef biryani and slept," Asaduddin Owaisi added, as quoted by ANI.
Asaduddin Owaisi will contest the upcoming Lok Sabha elections 2019 from Hyderabad. He said, “If anyone says that there are two national parties in India, I will say no to them because one national party is BJP and the other is 1.5 BJP," he said. "There is no difference between BJP and Congress," Asaduddin Owaisi asserted.
After the Pulwama attack, in which 40 CRPF personnel were killed by Jaish-e-Mohammed terrorists, the Congress had launched a scathing on the prime minister for shooting for a documentary at Jim Corbett National Park on that fateful afternoon on 14 February,
Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar had also criticised Prime Minister Narendra Modi for conducting rallies and critising the Opposition in light of the Pulwama terror attack.
Sharad Pawar also criticised the prime minister for being absent from an all-party meeting that was called by the Centre over the Pulwama terror attack.
"An all-party meeting was called by the Centre after Pulwama attack. We were told that the meeting had been called by the PM. When I reached, I saw that the prime minister was not there," Sharad Pawar said.
