So is Pakistan acting, or not?
On the issue of Pakistan’s action on the issue of terrorism against India being perpetrated from Pakistani soil, three members of the Union Cabinet have this to say, all within 24 hours.
Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh, in the Parliament of India, said.
“This is the first time that Pakistan has ever formally briefed us on the results of an investigation into a terrorist attack in India. It has never happened before and I repeat this is the first time. It is also the first time that they have admitted that their nationals and a terrorist organisation based in Pakistan carried out a ghastly terrorist act in India.”
Home Minister P Chidambaram had this to say.
“They should stop asking questions and get on with the job. There is enough evidence provided in the dossier given to Pakistan,” he told newspersons outside Parliament. “It has been a little tiresome,” he said in response to Islamabad’s dalliance over action against the 26/11 perpetrators citing lack of “concrete evidence.”
External Affairs Minister S M Krishna says this,
“Krishna said whatever evidence and dossier is given, Pakistan’s refrain is that it is not enough and cannot be proven in court of law“
While the Prime Minister is goading over the fact that his government has been able to get Pakistan to do something that the NDA government has never been able to achieve, his own ministers are openly crying over the fact that Pakistan does not do anything in spite of whatever proof is given to them!!!
