Modi says Gujarat police warned Centre of terorrists” planSeptember 13th, 2008 - 11:54 pm ICT by ANI
Bangalore, Sept 13 (ANI): While condemning the serial blasts in Delhi, Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday said that the State police had informed the Centre of a detailed plan of the terrorists quite in advance.
Earlier in the day, Modi led the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) attack on the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) for being soft on terrorism.
While lashing out at the Congress-led UPA for keeping in cold storage the Gujarat Control of Organised Crime bill (GUJCOC) which was pending before the President for the last four years, Modi said, “Those who are less for terror and more for terrorists are the one who opposes GUJCOC and Prevention of Terrorism Ordinance (POTO).”
During the discussion on political resolution at party’’s National Executive meeting here, Modi said “we are determined to carry on the battle both against terrorists and against those who prevent us from fighting terror”.
Modi also said that the Congress party under Sonia Gandhi and Dr Manmohan Singh has drifted away from the traditional Congress position on national sovereignty. During the meeting, L.K.Advani said that Modi had warned the centre of an impending blast in Delhi, hence the serial blasts in the capital cannot be considered as intelligence failure.
Advani said the governments attitude towards terrorism must change and accused the Central Government for being soft among terrorist organization like Students Islamic Movement of India (SIMI).
He further said that among the Prime Ministers that India had, Dr Manmohan Singh had failed in all front. (ANI)
