The Congress questioned Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Pakistan policy in view of ceasefire violations from across the border and terror attacks in Gurdaspur and Udhampur, saying he must explain the meaning of his earlier words “dhamakon ke saye mein vartalap nahin (no talks amid bomb blasts)”.

The party also accused the government of being “soft on terror” and maintained that its policy on national security has been “opaque”.

“Congress has always stood for good bilateral relationship and solution of all problems through talks but in view of grave provocations and emerging incontrovertible evidence, the PM must spell out contours of talks with Pakistan and what action he would seek from his Pakistani counterpart,” party chief spokesman Randeep Singh Surjewala said.

The Congress has been consistently attacking the BJP-led NDA government over its “failure” to take the promised “action” against Pakistan over ceasefire violations and terror attacks.
