Speaking about a movie more important for Centre than talking about KP genocide: Rahul Gandhi

NEW DELHI: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi slammed the Centre for not speaking up about the killing of a Kashmiri Pandit government employee by terrorists, saying that speaking about a movie is more important for the government than speaking about the genocide of Kashmiri Pandits.

“It is more important for the Prime Minister to speak on a film than on the genocide of Kashmiri Pandits. Terror is at its peak in Kashmir today due to the policies of BJP. Prime Minister, take the responsibility of security and try to bring peace,” tweeted Rahul Gandhi today. Rahul Bhat, who had got the job of a clerk under the special employment package for migrants in 2010-11, was gunned down by terrorists inside the tehsil office in Chadoora town of central Kashmir’s Budgam district on Thursday.

The killing of Rahul Bhat triggered street protest by the locals wherein tear gas was used to disperse the protesters. Following the protest, the J-K government constituted an SIT to probe the murder. (ANI)
