The Congress has again taken jibe over BJP’s ‘insensitiveness’ after Pulwama terror attack, wherein the grand old party has alleged that PM Narendra Modi was busy shooting for a film while the nation was still in a state of shock over killing of 40 CRPF soldiers.

In a press conference today, Congress leader Randeep Surjewala has said, “The terror attack happened at 3:10 pm, but the prime minister was busy shooting for his promotional film till 6:40 pm. When the whole country was mourning the loss of lives of our jawans in the Pulwama attack in the afternoon, PM Modi was busy shooting for a film till the evening. Is there any PM in the world like this.”

It is being said that PM Narendra Modi was reportedly shooting for a documentary for Discovery on his days in the Himalayas.

Surjewala, while quoting the minute to minute schedule from local newspapers said, “The prime minister was shooting videos to promote him among crocodiles in Corbett. He had tea and samosas while the nation had lost its hunger. It is absolutely despicable and shameful.”

Mentioning about the intelligence report on the Pulwama attack and targeting the authorities over ‘intelligence failure,’ Surjewala said, “How did terrorists acquire a huge amount of RDX and rocket launchers? 48 hours before the attack JeM released a video warning of attack. There was an intelligence report also on 8th February. Why were these warnings ignored?”

Earlier, in a terror attack in Pulwama, 40 CRPF soldiers were martyred after a suicde bomber had hit the convoy of CRPF and the incident was carried out by Pakistan based terror group, Jaish-e-Mohaamed.
