Anantnag attack: BJP says Rahul's comments immature
July 12, 2017  10:19
The BJP on Wedensday lashed out at Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi's 'lack of maturity' over his attempts to politicise the Anantnag terror attack that killed seven pilgrims.

"While the whole country is united at this dark hour, there are some discordant voices like Rahul Gandhi's. Right now, we need to go after the enemy, not place blame and politicise the matter. This is something that people who are not mature don't understand," BJP leader RK Singh told ANI.

"Whatever corrective action is necessary, it will be taken in due course of time," he added.

In a series of tweets condemning the attack on the Amarnath Yatra pilgrims, Rahul had called upon Prime Minister Narendra Modi to take responsibility for the same, adding that the attack was the result of a 'grave and unacceptable security lapse'.

The incident occurred at 8.20 p.m. on Monday when the bus, carrying 17 pilgrims from Baltal to Mir Bazar, became victim to the terrorist attack. As many as seven people were killed and 15 others injured.
