Instead of throwing its weight behind the security forces and naming and shaming Pakistan, Congress has reacted in such a way so as to doubt the very genuineness of the averted Pulwama 2.0
Bengaluru: The whole nation heaved a collective sigh of relief after it learnt that Pulwama 2.0 had been successfully alerted.
The nation also paid tributes to our brave security personnel for putting their lives at risk for thwarting any such terrorist attempt.

But for Congress, it is another opportunity to question our security forces and doubt their integrity.

Congress leader PL Punia, in a bite to ANI wondered how the car reached the place and sought an investigation into it.
He wondered, "How did the car full of explosives reach that place? There is also a need to investigate that. When Pulwama happened, many people raised questions but we did not. But back then, people had asked the same question and I feel if there are chances of such incidents happening again and again, then it is not good for the nation."
What makes us dismayed and distraught is how the Congress wondered how the explosives-laden car entered the area, but did not speak a word against Pakistan!
Even to this day, our neighbouring country continues to export terror to Indian soil, but Congress stops short of naming and shaming Pakistan.
Security forces on Thursday averted a major tragedy as they foiled a bid to set up a car-borne IED, containing about 45 kgs of explosives, in Pulwama district of Jammu and Kashmir.
Police say that the militants of Hizbul Mujahideen (HM) and Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) were working together to target the security forces in a similar manner as the February last year suicide attack which left more than 40 CRPF personnel dead.
But at a time when the Congress should have offered its unconditional support to the Indian government in dealing with such security threats on Indian soil, it questioning how the car gained entry, as if to suggest that there was sabotage and orchestration at play, is only a sad commentary on the grand old party.
