An UPA ally, NCP, on Thursday joined the opposition in charging the Government with adopting a “soft approach” towards terrorism.
Participating in a discussion in the Rajya Sabha on growing incidents of terrorism in the country, Yogendra P. Trivedi (NCP) said, “We are probably too soft in handling terrorism. Killers and terrorists should not feel India is too soft on them.”
There have been several terrorist attacks in the country in the last decade, he said, adding “This has become something which is common and people have become resilient.”
Mr. Trivedi said it is the primary duty of the state to protect its citizens. Giving an example of a ship lying abandoned on the Versova coast, he wondered “how a ship could come all the way to Versova coast without anyone knowing about it.”
Favouring more investigative powers to the police, the NCP leader strongly advocated that mercy petitions should not be kept pending for long.
Mr. Trivedi’s comments assume importance in the wake of Maharashtara Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan stating after recent Mumbai blasts that the State Home Minister should have been from the Congress party.
Govt terrorist-friendly
Participating in the debate, senior BJP leader Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi charged the Government with promoting “terrorist-friendly” policies.
RSS, Hindu-outfits behind some blasts: Paswan
“Don’t hold only minorities responsible for all terrorist attacks,” Mr. Paswan said pointing out that CBI reports say Abhinav Bharat was responsible for 2008 Malegaon attack and the RSS for the 2007 Mecca Masjid blast in Hyderabad.
