The Congress President Rahul Gandhi took a jibe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi for allegedly ‘shooting’ for a film on the day when Pulwama attack struck the nation. Responding to it, BJP attacked Congress over deleting a video of the Congress president dancing on the same day of the Pulwama terror attack.

Earlier, criticising PM Narendra Modi, Congress supremo targeted him with the term "Prime Time Minister" in his tweet using the hashtag #PhotoShootSarkar. “Even three hours after receiving the news of 40 soldiers being killed in Pulwama, 'Prime Time Minister' kept shooting for a film. There was a sea of grief in the hearts of Indians and homes of the soldiers, and he was smiling in his photoshoot at a lake," Rahul Gandhi tweeted.

Reacting to the criticism, BJP rebutted, “Rahul Ji, India is tired of your fake news. Stop sharing photos from that morning to shamelessly mislead the nation. Maybe you knew in advance of the attack but people of India got to know in the evening. Try a better stunt next time, where the sacrifice of soldiers isn’t involved.”

Adding more to it, BJP’s IT Cell head Amit Malviya pointed out at a Congress’s official handle’s tweet which showed Rahul Gandhi shaking legs on the 14 February, the day Pulwama attack took place. The time of the tweet was at 4:44 PM and the terror attack in Pulwama happened around 3:15 PM. Malviya asked, “Why did Congress delete this tweet showing Rahul Gandhi dancing after the Pulwama attack?

Other social media users shared the video of Rahul Gandhi, that Congress deleted. Video can be seen here:

As soon as the video went viral on social media, Congress deleted the video tweet. On 14 February over 40 CRPF personnel were killed after a suicide bomber hit the security personnel’s convoy, filled with explosives, on the Srinagar-Jammu national highway in Pulwama district.
