NEW DELHI: Congress leader from Uttar Pradesh Pramod Tiwari on Monday described the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) as a political institution that has always been timid and behaved like a coward when it comes to dealing with matters such as terrorism and ceasefire violations.
Targetting Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Tiwari asked, “Where did the 56-inch chest go? Prime Minister Modi used to proudly say that if one head is decapitated, we will behead 10. Where have all his claims gone? And also, bravely saying that the day I will become the Prime Minister, no harm will come to India? There have been over 1,144 ceasefire violations at the border of India and our brave Prime Minister is sitting silently and accepting gifts like mangoes and sarees,” Tiwari told ANI.
“We just want to say that whether there is terrorism or a ceasefire violation, the Bharatiya Janata Party has always been timid and coward-like in its approach. They should follow the path of respected Indiraji’s and show courage and patience,” he added.
Tiwari's verbal vitriol against the BJP came a day after Pakistan troops violated the ceasefire yet again in the Poonch sector of Jammu and Kashmir.
It was the second ceasefire violation by Pakistan troops in the last 24 hours.
Meanwhile, the Jammu and Kashmir Police has been put on high alert in the wake of these repeated violations of the ceasefire along the Line of Control (LoC) and the International Border (IB) by Pakistan.
Security has been tightened around all police stations in the state.
