Advani also said that the government should also have an organization on the lines of United States’’s RAND Corporation (Research and Development), a think tank formed to offer research and analysis to the armed forces.
“I think we need to have an inquiry into the entire issue (Mumbai attack). It is not appreciable that we do not have any inquiry into the matter. An inquiry should be put in place immediately, it is high time. And the way America has RAND Corporation preparing reports, even India needs to have a similar commission of enquiry,” said Advani after meeting a cyclist, Vinod Punia, who has come all the way from Mumbai to New Delhi to pay homage to the attack victims.
Ahead of the upcoming General Elections, the BJP has been putting pressure on the ruling Congress-led United Progressive Alliance government, to mount pressure on Pakistan to bring the perpetrators of the Mumbai terror attacks to justice here.
