Effigy of Rahul Gandhi burnt by Bajrang Dal

Rajkot: Activists of Bajrang Dal on Friday burnt an effigy of Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi to protest against his remarks after Mumbai serial terror blasts.

The effigy was burnt near Tricaun Baug area.

Rahul Gandhi, who was in Orissa a day after Mumbai serial blasts had said that it was very difficult to stop every single terror attack and 99 per cent of the strikes had been foiled thanks to intelligence and security agencies.

Bajrang Dal Saurashtra unit president Haresh Chauhan, while criticising Gandhi's remark, said the statement given by the Congress leader was unfortunate.

"The government should foil every single terror attack but the Congress leader was trying to defend the union government's failure against the terror attack," he said.
