Cornering the Narendra Modi government on the death of soldiers in Pulwama terror attack, Samajwadi Party (SP) chief Akhilesh Yadav on Monday asked "why the government is waiting and watching". The former Uttar Pradesh chief minister took to Twitter and said, "Till when will the three day period of mourning keep getting extended? Everyday we get news of the brave martyrdom of our jawans while smiling BJP politicians accompany their funeral processions. Why is the govt waiting and watching?"
On February 15, a day after the terrorist attack in Pulwama, Yadav had visited the house of slain CRPF personnel Pradeep, one of the 40 victims of the attack, in Kannauj and paid condolences.

The SP leader also took to social media on Sunday to attack the Bharatiya Janata Party-led government after the Delhi-Varanasi Vande Bharat Express developed a technical snag.
"After the inauguration, fumes were seen in Vande Bharat train, power failure inside coaches, snag developed in brakes after which train came to a halt. Vande Bharat is a story of development. Farmers are angry, youths are unemployed, security system has collapsed and country's economy shattered," he wrote on the microblogging website.
