The Congress party has once again backed the government post Pulwama terror strike . It has now slammed Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan’s statement on the Pulwama terror attack in which the cricketer-turned-politician warned against any “revenge” retaliatory action, saying he was speaking the “Jaish-e-Mohammad’s language”.
Khan assured India that he would act against the perpetrators of the Pulwama terror attack if New Delhi shares “actionable intelligence”, but warned against any “revenge” retaliatory action.
Forty Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel were killed when a Jaish-e-Mohammed suicide bomber rammed a vehicle carrying over 100 kg of explosives into their bus in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama district on February 14.
In a video message to the nation, Khan responded to the Indian allegations on Pakistan’s involvement in the attack in Kashmir last Thursday.
“Regrettable and shameful—Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan is still speaking Jaish-e-Mohammad’s language,” Congress’ chief spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said.
“Do not forget that Indira Gandhi and the Army in 1971 had broken Pakistan into two and liberated Bangladesh, as well as 91,000 Pakistani soldiers had surrendered to the Indian Army in Dhaka,” he tweeted.
खेदपूर्ण व शर्मनाक- पाक प्रधानमंत्री @ImranKhanPTI आज भी जैश ए मोहम्मद की भाषा बोल रहे हैं।
भूलिए मत की श्रीमती इंदिरा गांधी व सेना ने 1971 में पाक के दो टुकड़े कर बंगलादेश को आज़ादी दिलायी थी तथा पाक के 91000 सैनिकों ने ढाका में भारतीय सेना को आत्मसमर्पण किया था। https://t.co/xl62DMuYYZ

Former I&B Minister Manish Tewari on the reported talks offer said, “This is like a two-headed snake. While one head continues to bite india, the other head makes sanctimonious noises about talking… If Khan is serious about what he is saying, then he should first hand over Masood Azhar to India. Jaish has claimed responsibility for the attack.”
