Rahul holds Modi responsible for rising violence in Kashmir

NEW DELHI: Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi has said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi was responsible for the rising violent activities in Kashmir and the activities had started in the state soon after BJP came to power at the Center.

“We had our government for 10 years. Tourists used to come to J-K. There was peace. As soon as his (Modi’s) government came to power (at the Centre), terrorist activities started,” he said at an election rally in Ramgarh.

“Wherever he (Modi) goes during the elections, whether it is Maharashtra, Delhi or UP, before the polls, there will surely be incidents of violence. He will ensure that one religion is pitted against another religion and then the election follows,” he said.
