Cong for spl parl session to declare Pak a terrorist state
In wake of Uri terror attack, Congress demanded a special Parliament session and asked NDA government to declare Pakistan as a ‘terror’ state.
“There should be a special session of Parliament to discuss our security situation and to declare Pak a terrorist state. We believe extreme situation demand extreme decisions. By now, Pak should already have been declared a terrorist state. Uri and Pathankot have together taken a toll not seen in 20-22 years,” said Congress spokesperson Abhishek Manu Singhavi.
Though the central government decided not to scrap Indus Water Treaty, the principal opposition party upped the ante and also demanded that NDA government should impose economic sanctions on Pakistan and also scale down of its High Commission located in Delhi. “We demand near absolute economic sanctions against Pakistan. We also demand the considerable scaling down of Pakistan’s High Commission in Delhi,” added Singhvi.
It’s been nine days when terrorists stormed Uri army base. PM Modi in Kozhikode spoke on the issue at length. Reacting to PM’s speech, Singhvi said, “PM through its message in Kozhikode has delivered a worrisome response. India is looking weak, having failed to deliver meaty blows to Pakistan. Security situation is under serious threat. The people of India want concrete actions against the Pak rogue state.” The Congress spokesperson also said, “As far as India is concerned, political and administrative accountability of the highest offices have to be also fixed in the context of those responsible for security. For nine days, the government has been silent on this aspect and no accountability has been fixed.”
