Ahmedabad, Dec 5 (UNI) The BJP today alleged that there has been a serious breach in national security under Congress-led UPA government as the militant groups, having monetary linkage with Indian stock markets to fund their disruptive activities in the country, were operating in India.
BJP National spokesman Prakash Javadekar told mediapersons here that Union Finance Minister P Chidambaram yesterday admitted that militant groups were funding their activities in India through money earned on Indian stock exchanges, and said it posed a grave threat to the nation's security.
He alleged that the grim situation clearly indicated the lack of political will of the Congress led-UPA government to fight rising terrorism in the country.
Mr Javadekar pointed out that it was really saddening that the Union goverment had failed to take any action despite being warned a year and a-half ago in advance by National Security Adviser M K Narayanan that he suspected that militants had been investing money in Indian stock markets to fund their activities.
The weak political will and policy of Congress had given rise to terrorism in the country, he alleged.
The BJP leader also termed the Congress President Sonia Gandhi's statement calling 'Modi as Merchant of Death' as an insult to Indian democracy, as Mr Modi was democratically elected Chief Minister of Gujarat.
With this, Ms Gandhi had broken all the barriers of decency of political campaigning, he further alleged.
Criticising the Congress spokesperson Abhishek Manu Singhvi's statement alleging that Mr Modi would be dragged to international court for creating post-Godhra riots, Mr Javadekar said it was an insult to Gujarat and its people, which democratically voted him to power. It had also put question mark on the Indian Judicial system, he added.
