Naidu's comments come in wake of Pakistani-American terrorist David Headley's revelation yesterday before a Mumbai court that Ishrat, the 19-year-old girl from Mumbra near Mumbai, was actually a Lashkar-e-Taiba operative.
"Unfortunately, the earlier government tried to harass BJP leaders. They wanted to implicate the CM at that time and they've harassed my party president. Now, the truth has come out, they must realise their mistake and openly express regret for what they've done," he told reporters here.
Charging Congress with playing politics on a critical issue like national security, Naidu said that it was unfortunate that "some people" had more confidence in Ishrat Jahan than the facts which were coming out.
"It's a fact that these terrorists are being helped by some Indian people also. Without local cooperation, things will not happen," the senior BJP leader said on the sidelines of the annual Nasscom India Leadership Forum here.
