Senior Congress leader P Chidambaram today hit back at Union Minister Arun Jaitley for his latest blog targeting the Congress party over its alleged soft approach towards terrorists and Maoists.

Under UPA, the government fought the jehadists in JK and brought down the level of violence substantially, Jaitley had yesterday in a blog titled Who is Threatening Human Rights?, had lambasted the Congress party for being soft towards the issue of national security be extending support to elements who have been trying to overthrow the Constitution and backing secessionism. Targeting the Congress, he wrote: He had no qualms about joining those who raised subversive slogans at JNU and Hyderabad. With this initial success, the others amongst the so-called federal front have forgotten the dangers of these groups to India and Indian democracy. In a recent TV interview, Azad had said that He had also said that the BJPs language of all out operations in JK indicated that a massacre was being planned.
