Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday said Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “policies created the space for terrorists” in the Kashmir Valley and called it a strategic blow for India. 

“Modi’s policies have created the space for terrorists in Kashmir. Grave strategic blow for India,” Gandhi said on Twitter.

He also said that the short-term political gain for Modi from the alliance with the Peoples Democratic Party in Jammu and Kashmir had cost India dear.

“Short-term political gain for Modi from PDP alliance has cost India massively. Modi’s personal gain equals India’s strategic loss plus sacrifice of innocent Indian blood.”

Gandhi’s latest salvo against the Prime Minister came two days after seven pilgrims were killed when militants opened fire at a bus carrying Amarnath Yatra pilgrims in Jammu and Kashmir’s Anantnag district.
