Shiv Sena slams Rahul Gandhi's Mumbai blasts comments

Rahul Gandhi

Shiv Sena today said it was wrong for Congress leader Rahul Gandhi to equate Mumbai terror attacks with those in Afghanistan.

"We elect you to protect us. When you compare the Mumbai attacks to those in Iran, Iraq and Afghanistan. It is an insult to those killed in these attacks," Sena MP Sanjay Raut said.

A case of treason should be filed against Rahul Gandhi over these remarks, he said.

"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," Raut said.

Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi today said that 99 per cent of the terror attacks had been stopped in the country due to improved intelligence, but admitted that it's difficult to stop all terrorist attacks.

"We will stop 99 per cent attacks. But in one per cent they will get through.. It is something we will fight and we will defeat," he told reporters at Bhubaneswar this morning on the second day of his 2-day tour to Orissa.

To a question how US was able to stop any terrorist attacks on its soil, Rahul said the US soldiers were taking the hit in foreign shores  like Afghanistan and Iraq.

Referring to Wednesday's attack, Gandhi said the response of the government was prompt. "We are responding to it in a quite organised fashion."
