We cannot lower our guard, says Yechury

Insisting that the "fight against terrorism is the fight of united India", CPM general secretary Sitaram Yechury has said that the government and the agencies will have to answer where lies the fault as the attacks in Jammu and Kashmir are continuing even after the Balakot air strikes.

He accused the BJP of politicising the Pulwama terror attacks and subsequent air strikes in Pakistan's Balakot, saying its president Amit Shah has started it while the Opposition has been saying that it is "India versus terrorism".

Yechury was asked how the Opposition sought to counter the government making any questioning of its narrative sound 'anti-national'.
