In a series of tweets, Gandhi said,

The Congress vice president’s fresh criticism against the PM comes a day after Opposition parties asked the government to introspect and find out how despite intelligence inputs, terrorists could attack the pilgrims’ bus.
Gandhi, like many other Opposition leaders, questioned the BJP-PDP coalition in Jammu and Kashmir, the first such ruling alliance in the state.
