New Delhi: Congress leader P. Chidambaram on Monday attacked Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman asking if she was giving a clean chit to Pakistan in 2016 Pathankot and Uri attacks, as the former had claimed that no major terror attack took place since the BJP came to power at the Centre in 2014.

The former Finance Minister also asked Sitharaman to locate Uri and Pathankot in India’s map, in one of his tweets.

During the second day of the Bharatiya Janata Party National Council on Saturday, Sitharam had claimed that there had been no major terrorist attack after 2014.

“All attempts to wreak havoc in the country have been eliminated at the border itself and this government has ensured that there are no opportunities for terrorists to disturb the peace,” she had said.

The attack on the Pathankot Air Force Station took place on January 2, 2016 while, the Uri attack took place later that year on September 18, when four heavily armed militants attacked an Indian Army brigade headquarters in the Jammu and Kashmir town.
