Training guns on the BJP-led government at the Centre, the Congress termed the interview of Malik “explosive” and posed volley of questions to the ruling dispensation.

Addressing a press conference at the party headquarters, Congress general secretary and in-charge of Communications Jairam Ramesh while referring to Malik’s interview said, “The matter is related to national security. After his revelation (on Pulwama), the nation wants to know what is the response of the government.

Either initiate an action against him or give answer to the questions raised on Pulwama.”

Attacking the PM, the Congress MP said, “This matter is connected to Modi) ? The PM is directly being questioned. On many important issues, the PM has only one answer…. his silence. On China and Adani issue , he remained silent. Even on ‘black laws’, he was quite for a year and later he had to take back the farm laws.”

Minimum governance, maximum silence is the principle of this government, he alleged.

The Rajya Sabha MP also accused the BJP of trying to “supress” the interview of Satyapal Malik.

Endorsing his party colleague, Pawan Khera who is the chairman of the Media and Publicity Department of the Congress, said, “This is an explosive interview. The allegations are very serious. It comes from a person who is a senior leader of a BJP, and was close to PM.”

Echoing a similar sentiment, chairperson of Social Media and Digital Media of Congress, Supriya Shrinate said, “He (PM) called Satya Pal Malik and asked what had happened. When he said it happened because of our failure, he was asked to keep his mouth shut. NSA advisor Doval also asked him to remain silent.”

“Despite of intelligence inputs that such an attack might take place why the CRPF jawans request for five aircraft was turned down by the Home Ministry ? Why did the Modi government not gave approval of aircraft ? These 40 families of the martyrs want to know why they were not airlifted? ,” she asked.

Supriya also asked what the status of the probe of 2019 Pulwama terror attack is.
