Former Mizoram Governor Aziz Qureshi has alleged that the attack in Pulwama last year that killed at least 42 CRPF troopers was “planned” by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
“Plan karke aapne ye karwaya taki apko mauka mile, lekin janta samajhti hai. Agar Modi ji chahein ki 42 jawanon ki hatya karke, unki chitaon ki raakh se apna rajtilak kar lein, janta nahi karne degi. (You planned it and got it done, but public knows it. If Modi ji wants that he can ascend to power by murdering 42 jawans and use their ashes for his coronation, then people will nto allow this),” Qureshi, a Congress leader, said as per news agency ANI.
On 14 February, in Lethpora, Pulwama, Adil Dar, a militant associated with Jaish-e-Mohammad had rammned an explosive laden vehicle in the CRPF convoy. At least 42 troopers were killed and eventually led to an aerial dog-fight between India and Pakistan.
