New Delhi: Blaming the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-People's Democratic Party (PDP) Government in Jammu and Kashmir for the recent terror attack on the Amarnath Pilgrims, Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday said Prime Minister Narendra Modi's policy has created space for terrorists in the Valley.

Rahul took to Twitter to condemn the recent terror attack.

 

"Modi's policies have created space for terrorists in Kashmir. Grave strategic blow for India," he tweeted.

He said Prime Minister Modi's party alliance with PDP has cost India massively.

"Short term political gain for Modi from PDP alliance has cost India massively. Modi's personal gain= India's strategic loss + sacrifice of innocent Indian blood," he added.

Earlier too, in a series of tweets condemning the attack, Rahul had called upon Prime Minister Modi to take responsibility for the same, adding that the attack was the result of a 'grave and unacceptable security lapse'.

The BJP, then, lashed out at Rahul's 'lack of maturity' over his attempts to politicise the Anantnag terror attack that killed seven pilgrims.

"While the whole country is united at this dark hour, there are some discordance voices like Rahul Gandhi's. Right now, we need to go after the enemy, not place blame and politicise the matter. This is something that people who are not mature don't understand," BJP leader RK Singh said.

"Whatever corrective action is necessary, it will be taken in due course of time," he added.

As many as seven people were killed and fifteen others injured after a group of terrorists opened fire on a bus carrying 17 pilgrims from Baltal to Mir Bazar around 8.20 pm on Monday night.

Meanwhile, three Hizbul Mujahideen terrorists were killed by security forces near Budgam district in Jammu and Kashmir yesterday night.

Based on inputs of presence of some terrorists in a specific house, an operation was launched by troops of the Rashtriya Rifles, Special Operation Group (SOG) of the Jammu and Kashmir Police and the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) in Radbug village of Budgam.

The troops recovered one self-loading rifle along with three magazines and one pistol with one magazine.

Two terrorists have been identified as Javed, a resident of Churpur and Aabid, a resident of Badgam. The identity of the third one is yet to be ascertained.
