Gandhi's comments come a day after he attacked the BJP government of 1999 for releasing Jaish-e-Mohammed chief Masood Azhar, the head of the terror group which claimed responsibility for the Pulwama attack.
While the entire dossier was handed over to Islamabad last week, as sought by Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan, key excerpts of the dossier have now been given to Indian envoys across the world so that they can share it with foreign governments.
