Congress questions Modi govt's next move post Headley revelations, puts forth 3 demands

Ahmedabad: The Congress Party on Wednesday said on Wednesday that after revelations on 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks by David Coleman Headley, New Delhi's next move would matters the most.

The grand old party also said that there could not be more tangible proof than the revelations made by Headley about the involvement of Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) and Islamabad's backdoor support in perpetrating terrorism in India.

Congress general secretary Digvijay Singh said, "There is no dearth of people shouting Modi-Modi abroad, but how much impact Prime Minister Narendra Modi creates on international-level to garner the support of the international community matters now," as per ANI.

When asked whether he was satisfied with the government's handling of the Headley's issue, he said, "It's not a question about my satisfaction. Country's security is foremost responsibility of the Central Government, but we don't give baseless statements as was given by Narendra Modi when he was the chief minister of Gujarat. It's a matter of country's security and there should be no politics over it. The Central government should have full support to take strict action."

"However, we would like to say there could not be more tangible proof than this because Hadley has himself spoken that his handlers got the ISI's support and backdoor support by the Pakistan Government. How many proofs (does) one need?" he added.

The official Twitter handle of the party also tweeted the following:
