Afzal Guru Hanging: Yashwant Sinha Lauds Pranab

Senior BJP leader Yashwant Sinha congratulated President Pranab Mukherjee for rejecting the mercy petition of terrorist Afzal Guru, who was hanged today.

Addressing a press conference here Sinha said, the President deserved praise for rejecting the mercy petition.

"The President’s action is a clear signal that terrorists have no place in the country."

Responding to a question on whether the President acted under opposition pressure, Sinha said, the Supreme Court upheld the verdict of death penalty of the terrorist in 2006 and he did not find any reason why the hanging was kept pending for such a long period.
