Mocking at Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi for his statement that 99% of terror acts had been prevented by the UPA government, BJP on Saturday sought the details of the attacks foiled.
"We don't want to get into a diatribe on the blasts but wish that all those guilty of the act should be punished. But we would like to ask Rahul Gandhi on what basis is he saying that 99% attacks have been prevented. He should give details of the attacks which were foiled," BJP spokesperson Prakash Javadekar said.
He also held the government, especially the police, responsible for the slow pace of trial in courts and for failing to bring the culprits to book.
"In the last 18 years, there have been 16 terrorist attacks in the country. Of these, in four cases the courts have taken a decision but the matter was appealed in a higher court. Another four cases are pending in courts while no breakthrough or arrests have been made in the remaining eight," Javadekar claimed.
He pointed out that the German Bakery blast in Pune is one such example of police being clueless as to who all were involved in the case.
