Congress wants Modi to make Ufa discussions public

New Delhi, July 30 (IANS) The Congress on Thursday demanded that Prime Minister Narendra Modi reveal what he discussed on terrorism with his Pakistan counterpart Nawaz Sharif in Ufa on July 10 as India continued to suffer terror attacks from across the border.

“The prime minister should make a statement on the issue in parliament,” Congress leader Anand Sharma told the media here, expressing concern over the terror attack in Dinanagar town of Gurdaspur district in Punjab, believed to be carried out by terrorists from Pakistan.

Modi held a meeting with Nawaz Sharif in Ufa, Russia, on July 10 on the sidelines of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation meet.

The Congress leader said that Modi should be present in the house when the issue comes up for discussion.

“There should be no politics on terror. The whole nation is united on issues like these,” he said, adding that the Congress always took a tough stand on terrorism.

The party also distanced itself from Shashi Tharoor’s statement that he was “saddened” by 1993 Mumbai serial blasts convict Yakub Memon’s execution.

“Saddened by news that our government has hanged a human being. State-sponsored killing diminishes us all by reducing us to murderers too,” Tharoor tweeted.

Indicating that it could be his personal view, Sharma said India’s legal system was perfect and can’t be questioned.

“Nobody can dispute the correctness of our legal system,” the Congress leader said, when asked if the party believed in what Tharoor said.
