With Masood Azhar-led JeM suspected to be behind the Uri attack, Congress leader Digvijay Singh on Monday sought to put the National Democratic Alliance government in the dock, suggesting the earlier NDA regime had "compromised" with national security by releasing the terrorist following the 1999 Indian airlines hijack.

In a series of tweets, he also made a strong pitch for building strong international pressure to isolate Pakistan in the wake of the terror strike and also stressed on looking into the "failure" of the Army to protect its camp near the LoC.

"We compromised to let Masood Azhar go after Indian Airlines hijack. Lesson? Never compromise with National Security," the Congress General Secretary said.

Three terrorists, including Masood Azhar, were released by the Indian government in exchange for the safe release of passengers and the crew.
