BJP asks Sonia to explain Manish Tewari’s 26/11 reference in book

BJP spokesman Gaurav Bhatia said it was remarkable that INC's own leaders were now critical of their regime of the period 2004-14

The BJP launched a scathing attack on the for Congressman Manish Tewari’s new book wherein he criticised the then Manmohan Singh government for going soft on the perpetrators of the 26/11 terror attacks in Mumbai. Addressing the media, BJP spokesman Gaurav Bhatia said that the -led UPA government had put national security at stake by not responding strongly after the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks.

Tewari in his book 10 Flash Points; 20 Years National Security Situations that Impacted India said that the government had then gone soft in the name of restraint which is not a sign of “strength”, but “weakness”. “For a that has no compunctions in brutally slaughtering hundreds of innocent people, restraint is not a sign of strength; it is perceived as a of weakness. There comes a time when actions must speak louder than words. 26/11 was one such time when it just should have been done,” Tiwari wrote. 

“It, therefore, is my considered opinion that India should have actioned a kinetic response in the days following India’s 9/11,” he said.

BJP said that what Manish Tiwari has written in his book, “we all have seen in the media”. “It would not be wrong to say that the facts that have come out, it would be appropriate to call it a confession of the failure of the Congress,” he said.

“Like every Indian, when we read this confession of the failures of the Congress, we were pained,” the BJP spokesman said.”The book confirms that the Congress-led UPA government was insensitive, useless and was even not concerned about national security,” Bhatia said, adding that the Manish Tewari, who was a minister in rule, has admitted that his government had put national security at stake.

“Congress president Sonia Gandhi ji, Rahul Gandhi ji, will you break your silence today? Sonia Gandhi ji, our question is why India’s brave was not given permission and free will at that time? Our Army was asking permission from former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh ji that we will teach a lesson to Pakistan. But Sonia Gandhi ji why the was not given this permission?” BJP spokesman asked.

As many as 166 people were killed in the Mumbai terror attacks carried out by 10 Pakistani terrorists at different places in the city. The attacks began on 26 November 2008 and went on till 29 November.

Ajmal Kasab, the only terrorist who was captured alive, was hanged four years later on 21 November 2012.
