On Friday, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh said that a Pakistani minister’s admission that his country was responsible for the 2019 Pulwama attack in Jammu and Kashmir has unraveled the truth on the matter. He said that this has silenced those who questioned the government.
Singh said, “A Pakistani minister has revealed the truth in the Pulwama attack by stating the National Assembly. Pakistan has accepted that they were behind the Pulwama attack. He said that till then, they said that they didn’t have any hand in it.
This came in a day after senior Pakistani Minister Fawad Chaudhry staggeringly admitted that his country was responsible for the Pulwama terrorist attack in Jammu and Kashmir. Chaudhry admittedly lauded the “success in Pulwama” in the National Assembly during a debate.
Pakistani Minister calls “Success in Pulwama” a success under Imran Khan
Fawad Chaudhry, the Science & Technology Minister of Pakistan called the “success in Pulwama” success of the nation under Imran Khan’s leadership. He lauded that they hit India in their home and all of them are a part of that success.
Forty Central Reserve Police Force personnel lost their lives during the Pulwama attack on February 14, 2019. They were in a convoy of vehicles on the Jammu-Srinagar highway at Lethpora, Pulwama when an explosive-laden jeep hit them.
At a rally in poll-bound Bihar, Rajnath Singh lashed at Congress and said that the Pakistani minister’s admission has silence those questioned the NDA government’s intent. He said, “Congress leaders had questioned our intent then. But now that a Pakistani minister has stated in the National Assembly that Pakistan was involved in the Pulwama attack, they are silent.”
He said that the Opposition leaders were empowering Pakistan indirectly. Singh also added that whenever the government works for the country’s security with all their strength, the Congress and other opposition leaders always come ahead with questions.
He also cited Bharatiya Janata Party’s cooperation with the Indira Gandhi government during the 1971 war. Singh said that former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi had divided Pakistan into two. Back then, BJP stalwart late Atal Bihari Vajpayee had praised her in Parliament. He argued that Congress today is only questioning the government.
The Defence Minister said, “The Congress today has only one work left: doubting and raising questions over the government’s achievements. On the issue of the country’s territorial integrity, we should rise above political lines and work together.”
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi said in a recent political party that China had captured “1,200 km” of Indian land. Singh in retaliation said that if “we reveal the achievements of our Army, you all will jump out of joy.”
