Jaipur blasts: Congress, BJP trade charges
Onkar Singh in New Delhi | May 15, 2008 20:31 IST
Addressing media persons at the party headquarters in New Delhi, Congress spokesman Manish Tewari said, "If this is true, then why did BJP leader LK Advani visit the state a day before Sonia's trip. The Congress chief has been reaching out to the grief-struck people and victims of calamities."
Taking a dig at the Rajasthan chief minister, Tewari claimed that 'after 8 pm there is no CM.' He also said that she had failed to act on warnings issued by central intelligence agencies on a possible terror attack in Jaipur.
The BJP, meanwhile, is training its guns on the United Progressive Alliance government and has voicing its resentment over the Centre's anti-terror policies.
Party spokesman Ravi Shankar Prasad alleged that the UPA government was soft peddling on terror, which according to him was reflected from the fact that the number of terrorists killed had come down from 2,500 to 1,185.
