Facts Check Analysis: 

These tweets will answer the entire question raised by the Congress Party and its president Rahul Gandhi. Read the below tweets by Rishi Bagree.

The opposition which accuses BJP for being soft on terrorists during Kandahar Hijack, was itself putting pressure on the Vajpayee govt to secure the safety of the 200 Indian hostage.

Many young Indians r not aware of the what antics @BDUTT indulged-in during Kandahar hijack. I myself watched on TV how Congress & its media toadies like Barkha Mobilized crowds in front of PM Vajpayee residence & shamelessly used families of hostages to whip up emotional frenzy

Brinda Karat instigated the relatives of the hostages who were camping outside the 7, Race Course Road. There was a steady clamour that the Govt should pay any price to bring the hostages back home, safe “Give away Kashmir, give them anything they want, we don’t give a damn.”

"Some local Congress leaders also had taken out processions at that time as some of them had their relatives on the plane. "It was said that if you can free militants for the release of Mehbooba Mufti then why cannot you for common people"

The above tweets give all the clarification between than any one regarding the pressure during the release of JEM chief Masood Azhar. .

As per the news published by outlook, Sonia, Singh Were Part of Meeting on Kandahar

So now the question is did Ajit Doval accompany the terrorists to Kandahar.

The answer is not, he was only present at the Aircraft as an officer, any officer will have to do the job assigned by the government authorities, putting the blame on a government offices doesn’t gives the answer. The claims by Rahul Gandhi that Ajit Doval fly with Masood Azhar is absolutely wrong.

As per timesofindia,

“He (Doval) was not on the plane on which Azhar had to be flown to Kandahar to secure the release of 161 passengers on board IC-814,” a senior source said. He said Doval, then the additional director of Intelligence Bureau, had reached Kandahar ahead of Azhar’s release to negotiate with the ISI-controlled hijackers and Taliban leaders supporting them: a claim which is in line with the accounts given by then home minister L K Advani and then RAW chief A S Dulat in their books ‘My Country, My Life’ and ‘Kashmir: The Vajpayee Years’ respectively.

Jaswant Singh, the then foreign minister, flew with Azhar and two others terrorists — Omar Sheikh, who later killed American journalist Daniel Pearl, and Mushtaq Zargar.
