Bhubaneswar:  Congress General Secretary Rahul Gandhi on Thursday said that 99 per cent of the terror attacks had been stopped in the country, thanks to various measures, including improved intelligence.

Addressing a press conference at Bhubaneswar, a day after serial bombings in Mumbai killed at least 17 people and injured more than 130, the Congress MP called for efforts to stop terrorist attacks in the country.

"It is very difficult to stop any single terrorist attack," he said, adding that 99 percent of the attacks have been stopped. "We must stop 100 percent attack."

Referring to Wednesday's attack, Gandhi said the response of the government was prompt. "We are responding to it in a quite organised fashion."

Gandhi, the son of Congress chief Sonia Gandhi, is on a two-day visit to Orissa beginning Wednesday to strengthen the grassroots base of the party.

He returns to New Delhi Thursday.
