Rahul hits out at Oppn leaders on terror - Rahul

The youth face of the Congress on Wednesday sent out a loud and clear message that it would not tolerate any kind of baseless rhetoric from Opposition stalwarts.

Hitting out at BJP's prime ministerial candidate L K Advani, who has repeatedly criticized the Manmohan Singh government for "having failed to contain terrorism", AICC general secretary Rahul Gandhi reminded the BJP of the way it had conceded defeat to terrorism in 1999 when the NDA government sent its emissary to Kandahar in Afghanistan to negotiate with terrorists who had hijacked an Indian Airlines plane and even released one of them imprisoned in the country's jail.

"The Congress would never have done that," Rahul asserted.

The AICC general secretary was on a whirlwind tour of Lohardaga and Ramgarh to campaign for Congress candidates Rameswar Oraon and Saurabh Narayan Singh respectively.
