Leader of opposition in Rajya Sabha and veteran Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad today lashed out at the Modi government for its failure to effectively deal with “Pak-sponsored terrorism” and lack of any clear policy towards Pakistan and China.
Addressing a Congress convention of Jammu district here today, Azad said there was a “record number” of militant attacks and Pak shelling leading to heavy causalities of soldiers and civilians during the last nearly four years of Modi government.
“So, which government is weak — UPA or present NDA government?” he asked.
He said Prime Minister Modi has forgotten his promises on the safety and security of the country and has instead busied himself in touring in the world “giving advice to other nations rather than being concerned as to what is happening back home”.
Taking a pot shots on the Prime Minister Modi’s policy towards Pakistan, Azad asked “who invited Pak PM on oath ceremony and exchanged shawls with him, who went to Lahore amidst continued incidents of border firing and militant attacks, and who shared ‘Biryani’ with him?”
He also said that when Prime Minister Modi was engaged in “Jhula diplomacy” with his Chinese counterpart, “the Chinese Army was busy entering territory in Doklam”.
Azad said that the BJP has forgotten its promises made to various sections of the people during elections and now is looking for other issues to polarize and divide the society as the general elections are drawing near.
