Lucknow: In an apparent attack to Congress
leader Rahul Gandhi over his remark that it is "very difficult" to stop every single terror attack, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati Thursday said it was an irresponsible and
unfortunate statement.

"The statement of a Congress office bearer that it is
difficult to stop every single attack...is unfortunate and
irresponsible," Mayawati said, without naming Rahul, in a
statement here.

Rahul in Bhubaneswar today said it is "very difficult" to stop every single terror attack but asserted that 99 per cent of the strikes in the country have been stopped due to vigilance and intelligence efforts.
The UP CM said such statements demoralise people.

"The Congress office bearers are not serious on the issue
of terrorism and instead of trying to heal wounds of the
victims and their families they were putting salt on it," she
alleged.
Condemning the yesterday`s serial bomb blasts in Mumbai
that left 18 dead and at least 131 injured, the BSP chief said
the issue should not be politicised and all political parties
should try to find a permanent solution to deal with
terrorism.
