BJP can’t even bring a small criminal back, Dawood out of question – Manish Tewari




Congress leader Manish Tewari  has taken a dig at the BJP led government, at the Centre. It comes  after  the Shiv Sena threw a challenge to the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to bring the prime accused in the 1993 Mumbai serial  blasts case, underworld don Dawood Ibrahim, back to India, “Forget Dawood, this Government can’t even bring a small criminal back,” said Manish Tewari.

The Shiv Sena, in an article in its mouthpiece ‘Saamna’, had pointed to the fact that the BJP is in power both at the Centre and in Maharashtra and recalled that the late Gopinath Munde had vowed to put Dawood behind bars.

The reactions came after senior advocate Ram Jethmalani’s claims that Dawood offered to surrender to the Indian authorities in the 90s, but  then Maharashtra Chief Minister Sharad Pawar did not carry the matter forward. Pawar later clarified  that he did get the offer by Dawood to surrender and return to Mumbai but the conditions set by Dawood  were not possible for the government to  meet. Dawoood wanted to be placed under house arrest and not kept in jail.
