Defending Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi’s demand for an inquiry into the “local support” angle to the Mumbai terror attack,BJP today said Home Minister P Chidambaram “lost his cool” and was questioning Modi’s contention.

“I think Home Minister P Chidambaram has lost his cool because of his failures and so is giving such statements,” BJP spokesperson Prakash Javadekar told reporters.

Javadekar said Modi had raised the issue of local support to the 26/11 attackers as “it was clear that such an operation could not have been conducted without the support”.

“No outsider would know the topography of the hotels (Taj and Oberoi Trident)… about where the kitchen,etc were located. Let me tell you clearly that Modi has raised concerns of every Indian. Such precision attacks are not possible without local support,” he said.

Javadekar said instead of Modi’s statement,UPA should take action against the UPA minister who had cast doubts about the circumstances of ATS chief Hemant Karkare’s death.

“Union minister A R Antulay made a statement which was extensively carried in the Pakistan media and really helped Pakistan. Here is a UPA minister who was questioning the circumstances of the death of Mumbai attack martyrs,” he said.

The nation has right to know the progress made in the Mumbai attack case as two months have passed,BJP said.
