New Delhi, Feb 19: Over the Pulwama terror strike, Grand Old Party lashes out on the Government alleging "huge security lapses", and asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi to "walk the talk".
42 Central Reserve Police Force personnel were killed in Jammu and Kashmir when a Jaish-e-Mohammed suicide bomber rammed a vehicle carrying over 100 kg of explosives into their bus in Pulwama district.
Congress spokesperson Abhishek Manu Singhvi tweeted: "Congress highly responsible and very restrained post-Pulwama. Modi pre-2014 made highly provocative statements including resignation calls for then PM (Manmohan Singh) at the smallest incident."
"We do not do so post-Uri, post Parliament attack, post-Pulwama. But huge security lapses have to to be plugged for no recurrence," he said.
Such "huge security lapses" including the "ridiculous idea" of moving 2,500 jawans in 78 vehicles at one go, allowing any civilian vehicle on road simultaneously, ignoring direct written intelligence reports on Jaish suicide attack since December 2018," he tweeted.
Is this attention to detail by "56” chest"? he said.
Another senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal also hit out at the government over the Pulwama terror attack on Tuesday.
"Modi ji you say: It's over, the time to talk. You may be right, but: It's time to walk the talk," he said in a tweet.
"Promise us: No more 'hugs'. No more birthday bashes," he said in an apparent reference to Prime Minister Modi's surprise visit to Pakistan in December 2015.
