Shiv Sena slams Rahuls comment on terror
Mumbai: The Shiv Sena on Thursday reacted sharply to Congress leader Rahul Gandhi`s statement that all terrorist attacks cannot be stopped, terming it as an "insult" to Mumbai.
"Rahul does not leave a single chance to insult Mumbai. When he says the terror attacks will continue to happen, it shows that he is not fit to live in India," Sena MP Sanjay Raut said.
Raut was reacting to Congress General Secretary`s statement in Bhubaneswar that it was very difficult to stop every single terrorist attack.
Gandhi had said though 99 per cent terror strikes in the country had been prevented due to vigilance and intelligence, the aim was to achieve 100 per cent result.
"It is very difficult to stop every single terrorist attack. Steps taken by our government (to tackle terror) over the years have been very profound steps," he said.
When pointed out that there was no terror attack in the US after the 9/11 strike whereas India often faced the menace, Gandhi has said that the Americans had been facing attacks in other places like Afghanistan.
Raut alleged that by his statement on the US coming under terror attacks in places like Afghanistan, the Congress leader had wrongly drawn a parallel between those martyred in Mumbai and the victims in the strife-torn country.
