Patna | Congress today blamed the Narendra Modi government for its inept handling of the situation along Indo-Pak border in Jammu and Kashmir, saying that maximum number of ceasefire violations had taken place under the present regime. Ahead of Bihar Assembly elections, when Prime Minister Narendra Modi was vigorously pitching for National Democratic Alliance (NDA) candidates and making promises of all kinds, including the special package for the state, Congress in its bid to prove that Mr Modi not fulfilled his promises, made during Lok Sabha election, asked people not to take the Prime Minister’s words seriously.
General Secretary of All India Congress Committee (AICC) and former union minister Ghulam Nabi Azad told mediapersons here that Mr Modi, during campaigning for the Lok Sabha polls last year, used to accuse the then Congress-led United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government at the Centre of falling to handle the border situation along Indo-Pak border in
Jammu and Kashmir.
No leader in Congress had the courage to take a bold step to give a befitting reply to Pakistan, Mr Azad said, quoting a statement given by Mr Modi as PM candidate of BJP in the last Lok Sabha polls.
Now, it was for Mr Modi to explain before the people why cases of ceasefire violation had reached their peak under his regime, paralysing the normal lives in some areas of Jammu and Kshmir, he demanded.
