New Delhi, Nov 27 (UNI) The Congress today denounced the terror attacks in Mumbai, and asked all political parties to bury diferences and rise above petty politics in this hour of national crisis.
''We hope and trust that no politics of any kind will be played in this time of crisis,'' AICC Spokesman Abishek Manu Singhvi told mediapersons.
He said the nation should present a resolute united front. ''We must sent out a collective, unanimous and unwavering message from the nation that the perpetrators of such a dastardly act will not be tolerated.'' ''For the Congress, terrorism is colour-blind, race-blind, religion-blind and politics-blind,'' Mr Singhvi said, adding that ''We will not rest till we punish the perpetrators of such a crime.
We will not rest till we find every source, the support structure, the controllers and the benefactors.'' Referring to the death of Maharashtra's Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) Chief Hemant Karkare during an encounter with the terrorists last night, he said ''we wish to put on record that his invesigation into the Malegaon bomb blast case demonstrated discipline and non-partisanship of the ATS.'' Encounter specialist Vijay Salaskar, who was also killed, had successfully dealt with dreaded criminals, while Additional Police Commissioner Ashok Kamthe had never hesitated to be in the thick of battle, Mr Singhvi said.
