New Delhi: Raising questions on what Prime Minister Narendra Modi was doing in the immediate aftermath of the Pulwama attack, the Congress for the second day on Friday asked why he failed to mention the attack and its victims while addressing a rally in Rudrapur district of Uttarakhand just two hours later.

"We want to ask the Prime Minister what he was doing between 3.10 p.m. (when the attack happened) and 5.10. At 4.40 p.m., he addressed a rally through mobile phone. To the best of our knowledge, not even once did he mention the attack," said Congress spokesperson Manish Tewari at a press conference, where he played a DD news video as evidence of PM's address.

"If he had condemned the Pulwama attack, he would have paid a tribute to the martyrs.. none of that happened," he said.

The Congress leader said there was an even "more frightening scenario" than the Prime Minister merely failing to mention the attack in his speech.

"Was he unaware of the attack between 3.10 p.m. and 5.30 p.m.? He was either not informed about it by his office or he was incommunicado. That speaks a lot about the state of communication in the higher echelons of Indian state," Tiwari said.
