The Congress on Tuesday questioned Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s silence on continued ceasefire violations by Pakistan, saying he has neither tweeted nor spoken about the issue in his election speeches.

“It is unfortunate that civilians are being killed. But our Prime Minister neither tweets about it nor mentions it in his election speeches now. Why is he silent?” asked party spokesman Shakeel Ahmed.

He pointed to Modi's tweets on August 6 last year in which he had criticised the UPA government over Chinese incursions and ceasefire violations by Pakistan wondering “when will UPA rise”.

Ahmed said there have been 19 ceasefire violations since last week by Pakistan which had claimed six lives.

Taking a jibe at the Prime Minister, he said, “The famous words by him were that to deal with such situation, you need a 56-inch chest. I feel that instead of 56-inch chest, Prime Minister has 5.6 inch chest. It is being realised in so many days”.
