Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday said that short term political gain for Prime Minister Narendra Modi from PDP alliance in Jammu and Kashmir has cost India massively.

Rahul equated Modi’s personal gains to India’s strategic loss and sacrifice of innocent Indian blood. He added that PM Modi’s policies have created space for terrorists in Kashmir which is a grave strategic blow.

Earlier on Monday, Rahul Gandhi on Monday condemned the Amarnath Yatra attack and asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi to take the responsibility for the “grave and unacceptable security lapse” in pilgrims security.

“This is a grave and unacceptable security lapse. The PM needs to accept responsibility and never allow it to happen again,” Rahul Gandhi said in a tweet.

Gandhi expressing his grief said, “I share the pain and anguish of families who lost loved ones in the terror attack on innocent Amarnath Yatris today.”

“India will never be intimidated by these terrorist cowards,” he added.

Terrorists killed seven pilgrims from Gujarat, including six women, and injured 32 others as they struck at abus in the district, in the worst attack on the annual pilgrimage since the year 2000.
