New Delhi: The Congress party on Friday accused the NDA government under former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee of soliciting a deal with Hizbul Mujahideen chief Sayeed Salahudeen in order to grant the terrorist's son admission into an MBBS programme.

"The son of terrorist and Hizbul Mujahideen chief Sayeed Salahudeen was granted admission in MBBS under the aegis of the Vajpayee government. On one hand, our brave security forces were being martyred by a dangerous terrorist like Salahudeen, and on the other hand, the NDA government admitted his son in an MBBS programme. We ask the BJP to reveal all relevant information as to why Salahudeen's son was given admission and why such a compromise was made with such a noted terrorist," Congress leader Ajoy Kumar said at a press briefing.
