Congress leader Manish Tewari on Wednesday alleged that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led NDA Government is an administration of rhetoric which does not have the political will to bring even petty criminals back, forget someone like Dawood Ibrahim.

Tewari, who was reacting to the Shiv Sena’s assertion that underworld don Dawood Ibrahim should be brought back to India, said this is only government of rhetoric.

“The Shiv Sena knows that this government has no political will. This is only a government of rhetoric.of generaly talking in the air. Forget Dawood Ibrahim, they do not have the political will to bring a petty criminal back,” he added.

The Shiv Sena has criticised NCP leader Sharad Pawar’s admission that Dawood Ibrahim had offered to surrender along with certain conditions while he was the chief minister of Maharashtra and asked as to what prevented the BJP from making an effort to bring back the underworld don to India.

“If there is a will, he can still be dragged back to India. It is not so difficult. American commandos went into Pakistan and killed Osama bin Laden. They did not wait for him to surrender nor did they keep on negotiating terms with him,” said an editorial in Sena mouthpiece ‘Saamana’.

The Shiv Sena has pointed to the fact that the BJP is in power both at the Centre and in Maharashtra and recalled that the late Gopinath Munde had vowed to put Dawood behind bars.
