Congress President Rahul Gandhi's advisor and a close aide Sam Pitroda's statement on Pak sponsored terror attacks in India has become the centre point of the faceoff between the Congress and the BJP this election season. Speaking on the Pulwama Attack in which 40 CRPF jawans were martyred, Pitroda said that such terror attacks happen however, the response has to be measured and should not have been like the Balakot strike. He also suggested that Pakistan as a nation could not be blamed for the acts of 8 men of the 26/11 mumbai terror attack Congress may have distanced itself saying that the remarks were made in a personal capacity...such a statement during the elections season has given fresh ammunition to the BJP.
