This former BJP leader wants PM Modi to resign if indeed he was doing photoshoot after Pulwama attack

New Delhi, News24 Bureau, Feb 22: Rebel BJP leader Yashwant Sinha asks for Modi's resignation. "PM should come clean on what he was doing in the afternoon/evening of Feb 14 when Pulwama attack took place. If the NSA did not inform him immediately he has no business continuing in his post. If he did and PM still remained unconcerned then he must go."

 In a scathing attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Friday said the "prime time minister" continued shooting for a film till even three hours after news of the Pulwama terror strike came in. There was an ocean of pain in the country's hearts and in the homes of martyrs and he was smiling and doing a photoshoot in the waters, Gandhi said on Twitter with the hashtag 'PhotoShootSarkar'.

"Even after three hours of the news of the 40 jawans being martyred in the Pulwama terror strike, the prime time minister continued with a film shooting," the Congress president tweeted in Hindi.

On Thursday, the Congress cited media reports to allege that Modi continued shooting for a film in the Corbett National Park on February 14 for "self propagation", and stayed put till the evening despite the attack on a CRPF convoy in south Kashmir's Pulwama district in the afternoon that day.
