Bhuj, Dec 30 (UNI) Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi today said the recent happenings in Pakistan after the assassination of former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto could affect India in general and border states like Gujarat in particular.

In his first public meeting after being sworn-in as third time Chief Minister of the state, he said ,''Pakistan's former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto's home province Sindh in Pakistan is neighbouring to the Kutch region of Gujarat.

When Pakistan's former prime minister Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto was excuted by military regime headed by General Zia Ul Haq, people in Sindh were very unhappy and Jiye Sindh movement received a momentum.

However, military regime crushed it.'' ''Even today Sindh is not happy. In these circumstances, the central government should adopt a pro-active role against terrorism and take support of all humainst forces,'' Mr Modi added.

Mr Modi inaugrated a Pharmacy College at Virayatan Vidyapeeth complex, 50 km from here this afternoon.

''Benazir's assassination may revive Jiye Sindh movement. Indian government should give expression to their resentment with the global support. But UPA government does not seem to have done anything in the past three days,'' the Chief Minister said.

Recent developments in Pakistan have posed a grave danger to the internal security of India. In border states of India like Jammu and Kashmir, Punjab, Eastern states and some of the southern states the terrorism is raising its face. In this situation, the Centre should not be a silent spectator,'' he added.
