NSA Ajit Doval blamed BJP govt for Masood Azhar's release, claims Cong

Wednesday, March 13, 2019

New Delhi: Training its guns on Prime Minister Narendra Modi's trusted security adviser,  the Congress yesterday cited Ajit Doval's published comments in a 2010 interview in which he justified the release of JeM chief Masood Azhar by asserting that the most-wanted terrorist didn't even know how to make a bomb or shoot straight.

Congress president Rahul Gandhi also ridiculed Doval by saying that he had “escorted” Azhar -- who was in an Indian jail and released in the IC 814 hijacking episode -- to Kandahar in a "special aircraft" in 1999.

Congress' chief spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala quoted Doval as saying in an interview to a think-tank that Azhar did know how to fabricate an IED and that he was not a marksman.

The Congress leader said Doval also saluted the real "nationalistic policy" of the Congress-UPA to tackle terror. The Manmohan Singh government came out with a categorical policy on hijacking, stating that there would be no concession and no talks in such cases, Surjewala added.
