Pulwama aftermath: PM busy in criticizing Opp rather than attending an all-Party meeting

New Delhi: Rather than attending an all-party meeting called after the recent Pulwama attack PM Modi is busy criticizing opposition and conducting rallies said Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar on Wednesday.

“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 commented, IndiaToday reports.

Referring to PM’s current schedule of conducting rallies, Pawan said: “He should’ve been there but he found it more important to criticise us in rallies in Dhule and Yavatmal.”

Speaking on the recent official announcement of BJP-Shiv Sena for the upcoming elections, Pawar said that voters will see through the two parties’ strategies.

“In the last few months, there was a heated exchange of words between the BJP and Shiv Sena. Today they’re standing together, wanting to send a message of unity. People of Maharashtra can understand their strategy,” Pawar said, adding, “They will think and take steps accordingly.”
