PM Modi takes time out for condoling Vietnamese president’s death but remains mum on death of soldiers and policemen

Militants in Jammu and Kashmir’s Shopian district killed three policemen, all part of the Special Police Officers Force, after they allegedly refused to resign from their posts. But Prime Minister Narendra Modi has chosen to remain silent prompting social media users to mock his party, the BJP.

Their bullet-ridden bodies were found in a village in a south Kashmir village. This reportedly prompted at least six cops from SPO to resign and post their resignation video online.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman and Home Minister Rajnath Singh have chosen not to comment on the latest episode of barbarism targeting India’s men in uniform.

While projecting himself as India’s future prime minister before the 2014 Lok Sabha polls, Modi had repeatedly raised the issue of the deteriorating law and order situation in Jammu and Kashmir to corner the then UPA government. The situation in the valley has only become worse under his tenure as India’s prime minister. His term as PM has also coincided with the first ever BJP government in Jammu and Kashmir.

While Sitharaman is busy holding press conferences on issues outside her ministerial brief, seldom has she chosen to express her grief on the barbaric killings of Indian soldiers. More recently, the controversial defence minister was commenting on how some JNU students were waging a war against India. She had then spent days making a series of controversial comments while defending the alleged Rafale scam under her government.

The silence by Modi, Singh and Sitharaman prompted Twitterati to slam the BJP and its led government at the Centre. Keshav Chand Yadav of the Indian Youth Congress wrote, “BJP has turned out into Bhartiya Joke Party who must be credited for producing biggest Flop blockbuster policies in the history of Indian politics.”

One user, Dr Luttapi, wrote, “1. BSF jawan eyes gouged, throat slit, barbaric mutilation. 2. 3 police officers brutally murdered. 3. 6 Police officers resigned. Why is Modi so scared to condemn the act or offer condolences? Why the maun mode?”

Modi’s last three tweets on Friday morning were on condolences for the Vietnamese President Trần Dai Quang and a shout out for his Mann Ki Baat, scheduled for this month. In fact Modi posted two condolence tweets on the death of the Vietnamese president but none on the killing of the BSF soldier or the three policemen by Hizbul Mujahideen militants.
