The February 14 terror attack, in which more than 40 soldiers were killed in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama was BJP’s conspiracy, just like the 2002 Godhra riots. “The vehicle with RDX which was used in Pulwama attack was bearing the registration initial of Gujarat — GJ… Godhra was a conspiracy,” These are the words of former Gujarat chief minister and NCP leader Shankersinh Vaghela.
Terrorism was being used by the BJP government to win elections- Said Vaghela
Talking to media persons, he said, “Terrorism is used by the BJP government to win elections. A number of terrorist attacks have taken place in the past five years.”
“No one was killed in Balakot air strike. Even none of the international agency was able to prove that 200 militants were killed. Balakot airstrike was a planned conspiracy. It was supposed to happen,” he said.
“Even after getting information from intelligence sources regarding Pulwama attack, no pre-emptive measures were taken. And if you had information about Balakot, then why didn’t you take action against these camps. Why were you waiting for something like Pulwama to happen,” he said.
“BJP is involved in the whole thing. It is going to bring the sectarian conflict to win elections,” he said. Attacking the saffron party, he said, “BJP’s Gujarat model is false. The state is suffering. BJP leaders are upset with the party. They feel that they are bonded labourers.”
May Be, Gujarat’s Former CM Doesn’t Know That Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM), A Pakistan-Based Group, Claimed Responsibility For The Attack
Banned terror outfit Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) claimed responsibility and identified suicide bomber Adil Ahmad Dar as the one who carried out the Pulwama attack. The terrorist attack, which has direct footprints inside Pakistan, forced India to take extreme actions against Pakistan. So, blaming BJP for the attack is illogical because the terrorist group took the responsibility of the attack which drew the attention of international media.
Not just Vaghela, other political parties have also been talking in a hush-hush tone about the Pulwama attack. The parties did not come out in open with this point of view as the episode had flared up the nationalism and patriotic spirit and in the election year, each party wanted to tread with caution.
Gujarat went to polls on April 23. The counting of votes will take place on May 23.
