Is PM Involved in ‘Match-Fixing’ With Pak: Cong Leader on Pulwama
In a fresh controversy over the Pulwama attack, senior Congress leader BK Hariprasad on Thursday, 7 March, questioned whether Prime Minister Narendra Modi was involved in “match-fixing” with Pakistan.
In statement to news agency ANI, the Rajya Sabha MP from Karnataka said the chain of events that have taken place after Pulwama make it seem as if PM Modi had done match-fixing with Pakistan. Hariprasad also said without the knowledge of PM Modi and Pakistan, the attack would not have taken place.
“(Union Minister) Ravi Shankar Prasad should clarify whether there is any match-fixing between Pakistan and Narendra Modi. Without their knowledge, this Pulwama incident would not have taken place. If you look at the chain of events that have taken place after Pulwama, it looks like Modi had a match-fixing with Pakistan PM.”BK Hariprasad
On Tuesday, 5 March, Union Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad had accused the Opposition of trying to lower the morale of security forces for political gains. He had alleged that Opposition leaders’ statements on the Balakot air strike were part of a conspiracy, which had the blessing of Congress President Rahul Gandhi.
