Hyderabad: Senior Congress leader and MLC Shabbir Ali, said today that twist and turn of dastardly Pulwama incident in the last fortnight had exposed the hidden agenda of Modi government and BJP to exploit a national crisis into a political and poll gimmick. It is unfortunate that BJP is playing politics on the supreme sacrifice of our Soldiers.
Reiterating the undeterred commitment of Congress party for protection of national integrity and unity of all political parties at such critical hours, the former LOP said the BJP and PM Modi were attempting to twist the issue into a campaign for 2019 elections in the garb of patriotism and nationalism.
He said while the congress president Rahul Gandhi and congress leadership had been very responsible in their remarks and condemned the terrorist acts, the BJP leadership and PM have been taking full credit for the daring feats of Indian forces in countering the Pak supported terrorist acts and even held Victory rallies.“ The BJP’s hidden agenda to boil their egg in national crisis is crystal clear from Karnataka BJP leader BS Yediyurappa claim to win 22 MP seats in Karnataka after Pulwama episode “ he said .
The congress party has never attempted to earn political gains in national crisis like the BJP. Congress leaders attended the all party meeting called by themselves, and extended full support. It endorsed even the surgical strikes on Terrorist camps. The union Government and .PM Modi not bothered to call all party meeting during this national crises. The even the scheduled CWC meeting at Gujarat was cancelled and our leader Priyanka Gandhi also put off her party programs. “ But BJP is shameless in exploiting the war like situation for its 2019 parliament electoral prospects “ he charged.
Shabbir said that even after Pulwama incident Modi continued his schedule of posing for a election promotional campaign photo shoot in and around Delhi for three hours, when precious time for decision making was lost.
