After the attack on Amarnath pilgrims, Rahul had said the PM "needs to accept responsibility" for the attack.
He had also said that India will never be intimidated by terrorists. Opposition parties had also asked the government to introspect on its failure to prevent the "cowardly and ghastly" terror attack on Amarnath pilgrims despite reports of advance intelligence inputs.
"The government needs to introspect as to why, despite advanced intelligence inputs, was there a failure to prevent this attack?" a resolution passed by 18 opposition parties yesterday said. The BJP, however, asked Gandhi to "rise to the occasion" and not do politics over the Amarnath terror strike after he attacked the PM.
