India should have attacked Pakistan after Mumbai strikes: Manish Tewari

New Delhi, 23/11:After senior leader Salman Khurshid, senior MP Manish Tewari has put the Congress in a tight spot in an election season with his yet-to-be released book that triggered a controversy following his observations that the Manmohan Singh government should have attacked Pakistan after the 2008 Mumbai terror attack and that restraint was not a sign of strength but a “symbol of weakness”.

Tewari’s ’10 Flash Points, 20 Years: National Security Situations That Impacted India’ published by ‘Rupa’, which is set to hit the stands on December 1, also finds fault with the Narendra Modi government for shelving the plans to raise a mountain strike corps against China citing financial constraints.

However, it was Tewari’s remarks on the UPA government’s response that has triggered a backlash with the BJP immediately aiming at the Congress by alleging that the Congress-led government had put national security at stake by not responding strongly after the 26/11 attacks.
