Senior Congress leader and Lok Sabha MP Shashi Tharoor has clearly rejected BJP demands for an apology from the party over its reaction to the 2019 Pulwama terror attack, saying there was nothing to apologise for.

In a tweet, Tharoor questioned whether the Congress is supposed to apologise for expecting the Narendra Modi government to keep the “soldiers safe”.

“I am still trying to figure out what @INCIndia is supposed to apologise for. For expecting the government to keep our soldiers safe? For rallying around the flag rather than politicising a national tragedy? For expressing condolences to the families of our martyrs?” said the former Mos HRD and External Affairs.

In his tweet, Tharoor tagged a news report on senior BJP leader and Union minister Prakash Javadekar alleging that a Pakistan minister’s admission of Islamabad’s hand in the Pulwama attack had “exposed the Congress”.

“Pakistan has admitted its hand behind Pulwama terror attack. Now, Congress and others who talked of conspiracy theories must apologise to the country,” Javadekar had said.
