National Conference leader and former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Farooq Abdullah on Saturday question the death of Pulwama CRPF men.
While addressing his party workers, the NC chief said he ‘doubt that 40 CRPF jawans were killed in Pulwama.
“Were Indian soldiers not Martyred in Chhattisgarh? Did Modi Ji go there to give them blood? Did he sympathise with their families? Did he say something about soldiers who were martyred here? But those 40 CRPF people who were martyred, which I doubt. And I am telling you the truth”.
Furthermore, Farooq Abdullah launched an attack on the BJP-led Central government over its claims on the IAF strike in Pakistan’s Balakot. He said that Pakistan’s F-16 was shot down because PM Modi wanted to ‘show how brave he is’.
“And he made an issue out of it and what did he do? Tried to attack Pakistan. Said we have attacked and killed 300 people there. Some said 500 people, some said 1000. He said that we have also shot down their plane. Only to show how brave he is”.
On February 14, a blast occurred as a vehicle laden with explosives rammed into the CRPF convoy. Soon after the blast, shots were fired at the CRPF men.
