New Delhi, Nov 3 (UNI) The BJP today strongly condemed the imposition of emergency in Pakistan and promulgation of Martial Law by President Pervez Musharraf, calling it a 'desperate move by the dictator' to stay back in power.
''It was the last ditch effort of Gen Musharraf to stay back in power,'' BJP Vice-President and former External Affairs Minister Yashwant Sinha told reporters.
Pakistan, he said, was a ''nuclear weapon state and an epicentre of terror and its actions will not be confined to its borders but to the entire South Asia and the whole world''.
''India should strongly condemn Gen Musharraf's steps and take all measures to secure its borders and impress upon the world community about the need to take actions against Pakistan which was much more dangerous than Myanmar,'' he said.
The United States policy on Pakistan had totally failed and the former's wish of bringing back democracy in the country was never complied by the ''Pakistani dictator'', Mr Sinha said.
