Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad on Thursday accused the Congress party of trying to weaken the morale of the country at a time when several countries are passing resolutions condemning Pulwama attack, which claimed lives of 40 CRPF jawans in Pulwama district of Jammu and Kashmir. “When the whole country is one, when the country after country passing resolution condemning Pulwama Attack and standing firmly with India. At that critical moment the true face of Congress party has appeared, seeking to weaken the morale of the country,” said Prasad.
His remarks came hours after Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala accused PM Modi of shooting a film in Jim Corbett National Park while the suicide attack happened.
"There is no better example than this of Modi's insult to our soldiers. At 3.10 p.m. when the Pulwama attack occurred and was all over news, the PM was shooting for a film till 6.45 pm in Corbett National Park," Surjewala had said.
Taking a dig at Congress president Rahul Gandhi for questioning surgical strikes, Prasad said that what else can be expected from his party. “Rahul Gandhi asks for an evidence of the surgical strikes but does not ask for any evidence when man of a questionable character in London in the presence of Kapil Sibal questions India's elections. What can we expect from them?” Prasad said while addressing a press conference in the national capital.
