'America is not helping India to fight against terrorism and deliberately withheld information about David Headley's involvement in 26/11 terror attacks,' CPI leader Sukumar Damle said

Accusing America of not helping India on terrorism issue, Left organisations in Maharashtra -including CPI, CPI(M), Forward Block and Krantikari Samajwadi Party - would hold a protest tomorrow on President Barack Obama's arrival in Mumbai.

"America is not helping India to fight against terrorism and deliberately withheld information about David Headley's involvement in 26/11 terror attacks," CPI leader Sukumar Damle said.

Even America has not handed over former Union Carbide chief Warren Anderson to the country who was responsible for the Bhopal gas tragedy, Damle said.

"We are also shocked over the way state ministers, including the chief minister, were asked personal details for security reasons. But it is sad that the government does not resist such things," he said.

The protest will be held at 5pm hours at Churchgate station.
