Manish Tewari questions weak response to 26/11 attacks in his new book

New Delhi, 23 November

The Congress found itself facing a new storm on Tuesday, with former minister Manish Tewari questioning the erstwhile UPA government’s weak response to the Mumbai terror attacks and the ruling BJP calling it “weakening India with its distorted thinking”. To attack the old organization.

Tiwari, who was the information and broadcasting minister during the UPA government, said in a book to be launched on December 1: “A time comes when actions must speak louder than words. 26/11 was one such time. For a state that does not mind ruthlessly killing innocent people, restraint is not a sign of strength, but a sign of weakness. That’s why I believe India should have auctioned a kinetic reaction,” Tiwari wrote in the book “10 Flashpoints: 20 Years”.

The BJP hit out at Congress with IT chief Amit Malviya saying Congress’s confused thinking has made India weak. The Congress deferred questions on Tiwari’s book with party spokesperson Pawan Khera saying he would reply after reading the book. – tns
