JIT visit, a ‘wrong’ precedent: Cong

Youth Congress protest in Pathankot

New Delhi : Keeping up the offensive over the visit of a Pakistani Joint Investigation (JIT) team to probe the Pathankot terror attack, Congress today accused the government of compromising the country’s sovereignty and setting a “wrong” precedent.

“It is known all over that the Pakistani ISI is behind the terror attacks in India, including the 26/11 Mumbai terror strikes, and still we are serving biryani to the JIT which also includes an ISI representative,” party spokesman P L Punia told reporters.

Questioning the visit of the JIT to the strategic air base at Pathankot, he said it was “unprecedented” as there are never technical and non-technical areas at such defence installations.

Replying to a question, he said the Narendra Modi dispensation has set a “wrong” precedent by allowing the JIT to visit India.

“Tomorrow we will also allow China to send any such team. What happened to those who used to boast of a 56-inch chest,” he said, in a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Congress has been saying that according an almost “red carpet welcome” to JIT compromised national security and likened it to an accused investigating himself.
