Sonia Gandhi questions Advani’s tenure as Home Minister

SHILLONG - Congress President Sonia Gandhi on Monday criticized senior Bharatiya Janata Party leader Lal Krishan Advani stating that the Kandahar episode and the 2001 Parliament attack had occured when he was the Union Home Minister of the country.

“When Advaniji was the home minister, a terrorist who was captured and kept in jail here was released and escorted as a guest to Afghanistan. The terrorist then went to Pakistan and planned attacks against India, including the attack on our Parliament,” she told an election rally at Shillong on Monday.

“Can you trust such a person (Advani)?” Gandhi asked while describing Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh as one who never compromised on the nation’s security.onia Gandhi was referring to the BJP’s prime ministerial candidate for constantly describing Dr. Singh as a “weak” PM.

“Our Prime Minister, in the face of the Mumbai attacks, did not make a big noise, nor shouted, nor screamed. Through diplomatic pressure, he was able to get Pakistan agree that the terrorists ere citizens of that country. This has never happened before,” Sonia said during an election rally here.
