Ahmedabad: Former Gujarat chief minister Shankersinh Vaghela on Wednesday claimed that the terror attack in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama district on February 14 was the BJP’s conspiracy as was Godhra.
The Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader alleged that the vehicle with RDX, which was used in Pulwama attack, “was bearing the registration initial of Gujarat — GJ. Godhra was a conspiracy.”
Vaghela told the media that the BJP government uses terrorism to win elections. “A number of terrorist attacks have taken place since the last five years,” Vaghela said.
The ex-Gujarat CM added that there was no casualty in Balakot airstrike.
“No one was killed in Balakot airstrike. Even none of the international agency was able to prove that 200 militants were killed. Balakot airstrike was a planned conspiracy. It was supposed to happen,” ANI mentioned Vaghela as saying.
“Even after getting information from intelligence sources regarding Pulwama attack, no pre-emptive measures were taken. And if you had information about Balakot, then why didn’t you take action against these camps. Why were you waiting for something like Pulwama to happen,” he added.
Alleging the BJP’s involvement, Vaghela said, “It is going to bring the sectarian conflict to win elections.”
Hitting out at the BJP government, Vaghela dubbed the party’s Gujarat model as false.
Gujarat is “suffering. BJP leaders are upset with the party. They feel that they are bonded labourers,” added Vaghela.
