Sushma Swaraj slams Rahul Gandhi’s on his stated comments that “terrorism was not an issue.” Union Minister said, “He (Rahul Gandhi) says the job is an issue, not terrorism. I want to tell Rahul Gandhi Ji, if terrorism is not an issue and there is no terrorism in the country, then why do you go around with SPG security?
“From the period of the assassination of (former Prime Minister and Rahul’s father) Rajiv Gandhi till now all your family is under the security cover of SPG,” she added. If you feel that terrorism is not an issue then I want to tell you, you write it and give that you do not need SPG security because you feel there is no terrorism in this country and you are not afraid of anybody,” she said.
Sushma Swaraj said, “opposition parties who do not have faith in Prime Minister Narendra Modi were taking his Pakistan counterparts statements for granted,” referring to air strikes on terror camp in Pakistan. The External Affairs Minister said, “the air strikes received international support and she received calls from leaders of several countries appreciating India’s stand on terrorism.”
“Opposition parties in the country were taking exception to the BJP claiming credit for the air strikes on Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) in February, she added. She said the UPA Government should have taken strict action against Pakistan during the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks.
