The nation has for long been kept in the dark about the truth behind the Pulwama attack in which 40 jawans of the country lost their lives. Prime minister’s silence on a range of issues is widely read to be his consent. These issues have created uproars and the nation must receive answers to these disturbing questions, read a press statement of Social Democratic Party of India (SDPI).

SDPI’s national president, M.K. Faizy took swipes at the PM’s silence and silenting role in what led to the Pulwama attack in February 2019 in which 40 jawans of the Central Reserve Police Force lost their precious lives because of his “incompetence” and the alleged lapses of the home minster, as revealed by former Jammu & Kashmir governor Mr Satya Pal Malik in an interview with veteran journalist Karan Thapar.

Faizy said that BJP lied to the nation about what had led to the attack on the CRPF convoy whose details by none other than J&K last governor, before the State was divided and reduced to a Union Territory, is startling. SDPI therefore demands a high level inquiry into the matter with representation from all Opposition parties and legal experts. He further said that the BJP should unconditionally apologise to the nation for its failure and for using the Pulwama issue for political purposes.

The SDPI leader also demanded an inquiry into the hydro-electric schmes in which the BJP-RSS leader Ram Madhav’s role needed to be checked from all angles as the deal smacks of a huge corruption.
