Congress criticises BJP’s ‘grandiose’ event after Uri attack

Thiruvananthapuram, Sep 25 (IANS) The Congress on Sunday said the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) should have delayed its “grandiose” national executive meet held in the Kerala city of Kozhikode after the September 18 terror attack on an army base in Jammu and Kashmir.

Kerala state Congress President V.M. Sudheeran criticised the BJP, saying the meet was being held when the national security of the country has been affected by the attack in Uri that left 18 soldiers dead.

Sudheeran told reporters that the BJP should have postponed the event.

“Instead of speaking at the grandiose event of their party going on in Kozhikode, Prime Minister Narendra Modi should have called (a special session of) parliament. He should have addressed these issues in parliament and not at a party meeting,” said Sudheeran.

The Congress leader also took a dig at Modi for his alleged failure in keeping the promises he had made to the people of Kerala during his earlier visits to the state.

“The price of rubber is at rock bottom. He (Modi) had assured that price of agricultural produce would be taken care of but nothing has happened, and also his promise on enacting new laws to amend the present Coastal Regulation Zone has also not taken place, leaving thousands of fishermen unable to renovate their homes.”
