‘Power-hungry’ Modi planned Pulwama attack: Indian politician

Indian Congress Leader Udit Raj has claimed that “power-hungry” Narendra Modi had planned the Pulwama terror attack that took place in February 2019, just weeks before the Indian parliamentary elections that saw the latter consolidating his grip on the country

In a tweet, the Congress leader termed the security breach during recent Modi’s visit to Indian Punjab a “drama”, saying it proved that Modi was behind the ghastly terror attack in which 40 personnel lost their lives

पी एम मोदी की नौटंकी ने अब पुख्ता कर दिया कि सत्ता की भूख के लिए पुलवामा कांड खुद कराया। — Dr

Udit Raj (@Dr_Uditraj) January 8, 2022 “Why the soldiers were allowed to travel in a convoy and were not airlifted,” Times Now quoted Raj as saying

Earlier, former Congress president Rahul Gandhi including other Indian politicians had also raised doubts over the terror attack

Lawmaker from India’s Wayanad district asked who benefitted the most from the attack and why no accountability was fixed over the security lapses that led to the attack

A damning transcript of WhatsApp messages between Arnab Goswami, chief editor of Republic TV, and Pratho Dasgupta – the incarcerated head of ratings company Broadcast Audience Research Council (BARC) – had exposed New Delhi’s smear campaign against Islamabad

The conversation is part of a 3,400-page supplementary charge-sheet filed by Mumbai Police investigating the alleged tampering case

The Foreign Office, in a statement, said the conversation has vindicated Pakistan’s stance on India’s hegemonic designs

India was quick to blame Pakistan for the attack and rejected repeated offers of cooperation by Prime Minister Imran Khan
