The people across the nation strongly believe that it was Pakistan-backed terror outfit Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) that eliminated as many as 44 CRPF paramilitary troopers in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama district but after Senior Samajwadi Party leader Ram Gopal Yadav’s shocking remark which came to light on Thursday, Pakistan may misuse the statement given by an Indian leader.
Ram Gopal Yadav accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of conducting the Pulwama terror attack for the sake of votes. He highlighted that the Modi government planned the entire scheme of things and “killed” CRPF personnel only to serve its political interests.
As per the news agency ANI, Ram Gopal Yadav said paramilitary forces are not pleased with Prime Minister Modi. “Paramilitary forces dukhi hain sarkar se. Jawan maar diye gaye vote ke liye (Paramilitary jawans are unhappy with the government. Jawans were killed for votes),” he was quoted as saying by ANI.
The Samajwadi Party leader’s remark cited Pulwama terror attack in Jammu and Kashmir where CRPF jawans were killed in a suicide attack on February 14.
Digging a bit deep about the attack, Ram Gopal Yadav said: “Checking nahi thi Jammu-Srinagar ke beech mein jawano ko simple buses main bhej diyaye saish hai (There was no security check between Jammu and Srinagar. The jawans were sent in simple buses. This was a conspiracy).”
He also said that he will not talk any further about this. “Jab sarkar badlegi, iski jaanch hogi. Tab bade bade log phasenge (Once there is a new government, we will get this investigated. Many big names will come out).”
Reacting to Ram Gopal Yadav’s comments, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath demanded an immediate apology. “This is an attempt to demoralize security forces, He [Yadav] must apologise,” Yogi Adityanath said.
