Goyal attacks Congress over ex-Mumbai police chief Maria's book on 2008 terror attacks

Union Minister Piyush Goyal spoke on reported excerpt from the Ex-Mumbai Police Commissioner Rakesh Maria's book 'Let Me Say It Now'. The book states that Mumbai terror attack convict Ajmal Kasab would have died as Samir Dinesh Chaudhari with 'red thread around his wrist' had LeT succeeded in their plans. Responding to it, Goyal said, "First of all why did Mr Maria say these things after all this time? He should have said all these things when he was a police commissioner. In my opinion, it was a plot by Congress and UPA. We saw an example of lie, when they tried to create narrative of 'Hindu terror' on the instructions of Chidambaram. They paid for it with defeat in 2014 and 2019. There’s no religion of terror. Terrorist is only a terrorist."
