New Delhi, Nov 29 (UNI) Asserting that it will not bow before or negotiate with terrorists, the Congress tonight asked Pakistan to honour its commitment and prevent the use of its territory for commission of acts of terrorism against India.
An emergency meeting of the Congress Working Committee (CWC) tonight discussed the Mumbai terror strike for nearly three hours and asked the UPA government to take immediate and concrete steps to revamp the security setup making it more responsive and to ensure that the incidents of terror are prempted and prevented.
In a resolution adopted at the meeting chaired by Congress president Sonia Gandhi and attended by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, the party cautioned the people against the divisive and diabolic design of some forces to politicise the Mumbai tragedy in pursuit of partisan political agenda.
Saying that the attempt to communalise terrorism was unfortunate and despicable, AICC General Secretary Janardhan Dwivedi, who briefed the deliberations of the meetings at the 10 Janpath(residence of Ms Gandhi), said the final answer to terrorism was that it must be crushed with all the power at the command of the government.
''We appeal to the people of India to remain united and resolute and maintain peace in these testing times,'' the resolution said.
