New Delhi: BJP’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi on Wednesday, citing former central Home Secretary Ram Pradhan’s interview to a leading daily The Hindu in which he revealed about a local mole who allegedly assisted in carrying out 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks, sought answers from the UPA government, saying – “Will UPA explain?”

Modi said that Pradhan’s revelations on the Mumbai attacks are shocking but not unexpected. "Read former Union Home Secretary Ram Pradhanji`s interview to Hindu. His revelations on 26/11 are shocking but not unexpected," Modi tweeted on the micro-blogging site today.

Seeking answers from the UPA government, Modi tweeted an excerpt from Pradhan’s interview, “Told Home Minister (P Chidambaram) on local mole...suggested matter be pursued..don`t know what happened to that." Will UPA explain?”

Modi further tweeted excerpts from the interview, “...Central agencies did not cooperate for their own input from Central agencies despite our repeated requests -Ram Pradhan ji (sic)”

Two British journalists in their book had said that there was a Pakistani mole in India who had supplied crucial information to that Pakistan`s secret service ISI.
"Centre`s failure to bring the real perpetrators of 26/11 to justice is disappointing. It is high time Centre acts decisively," Modi said yesterday on the fifth anniversary of the terror attacks.
Pakistani national Ajmal Kasab, who was executed last year in Pune for his role in 26/11 attacks, had revealed to his interrogators that his handlers were linked to ISI.
