Ravi Shankar Prasad Goes On Digital India Campaigns While Air Force Pilot Still In Pak Custody

Senior ministers engaging in photo-ops during an India-Pakistan military escalation speaks volumes.

Ravi Shankar Prasad, Union Minister for Law and Justice, Information Technology, busied himself with inaugurating the ‘digital village’ in Chirpura in the Patna district whilst the country reeled in angst and dismay over the loss of an Air Force fighter jet. An Indian Air Force pilot — Wing Commander Abhinandan — too remains in Pakistan’s custody for now. The focus of Prasad’s attention, yet, remained a village in Bihar, where he felicitated various beneficiaries of Digital India.

Prasad, like a few other Bharatiya Janata Party leaders, did not stop either campaigning or performing sundry duties on camera. While many on social media slammed Union Minister Rajnath Singh for carrying on with a Bharatiya Janata Party election event in Bilaspur, others also condemned Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s political activities, pointing out his disregard towards the missing Air Force pilot.

Prasad seems to have been touring all day. Prior to Chirpura, he had been inaugurating a digital village in Sonagopalpur in Patna.

Social media users have started asking the Minister to come home to the real issues, concerning Abhinandan, the Air Force pilot’s return.

In contrast, the Indian National Congress’ president Rahul Gandhi’s social media profile on Twitter maintained campaign silence for the day, with no other tweets except the ones reading, “I am sorry to hear that one of our brave IAF pilot is missing… We stand by our armed forces in these difficult times.”
