Congress targets NDA, asks PM Modi to apologise

New Delhi: The Congress on Friday targeted the NDA government over a former RAW chief’s comment that the response to the 1999 IC-814 hijack was “goofed up”, and asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi to apologise to the nation.

Former chief of the Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) A.S. Dulat on Thursday said no clear instructions were given to the police on December 24, 1999, when the Indian Airlines plane landed in Amritsar, because of which the hijackers took off the plane to Kandahar in Afghanistan.

Dulat's book, "Kashmir: The Vajpayee Years", is slated to be released shortly.

Congress spokesperson Ajoy Kumar told the media that Dulat’s comments revealed “disturbing facts.”

“They (the BJP) have compromised the interests of the country whenever they have been in power. Who was behind these decisions? The prime minister should break his silence and apologise to the country,” he said.
