BJP today alleged that Congress by questioning the government’s handling of the Pathankot attack was politicising the issue and retorted saying that those responsible for the problem of terrorism should not question those trying to solve it.
“This is very unfortunate that when the operation is still on, Congress is doing politics over it. It will be better if we do not politicise terrorism. Terrorism is more than a three-decade-old problem and we have inherited it from Congress.
“Our government is constantly working to solve it. Congress should introspect. Those who are responsible for the problem should not question the one trying to solve it,” BJP secretary Shrikant Sharma said.
He said India will respond to those responsible for terrorism in India in “their own language” but reacted cautiously to the possible impact of Pathankot attack on the Indo-Pak dialogue, noting a decision will be taken “at the right time”.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi has worked hard to build a global opinion against terrorism and those “desperate” with it as well as India’s economic progress are behind the terror attack, he said.
