New Delhi: The veteran Congress leader P Chidambaram said India does not have the capability to conduct an operation to target terrorists like Hafiz Saeed as Americans did to get Osama bin Laden in Pakistan.
The veteran Congress leader’s comments came after Army Chief General Bipin Rawat said India has the capability to carry out an operation to eliminate those responsible in Mumbai blast.
Chidambaram said after the Mumbai attacks, Hafiz Saeed was in a safe house in Karachi. He is roaming freely. But, we do not have the striking capability to get him.
He said India had never been well equipped to handle such a strike. India had strongly conveyed to Pakistan through diplomatic channels that any Mumbai-like repetition would invite retaliation
General Rawat in an interview said that US style attack is an option but there are other ways. The government of India is doing in other ways, he said and added that Pakistan now stands isolated in the international community.
