Lucknow, Mar 10 (UNI) Hindu Yuva Vahini founder and BJP MP Yogi Adityanath today blamed the Centre's appeasement policy and the Uttar Pradesh government for the recent spurt in Islamic terrorism in the country.
''The vote bank diplomacy of the political parties is the main reason for the rise in the terrorism, leading to a severe threat to the country's internal security,'' he maintained.
The firebrand leader, addressing a press conference here, said both the Centre and state government are being ruled by parties, which are enjoying power at the cost of sufferings of the people.
Mr Adityanath, successor of Mahant Avedyanath, the head priest of the Gorakhnath peth, claimed only Hinduism and development could change the country's scenario.
Giving details about the terrorist acts in UP, he said, ''the entire 800 km stretch of the Indo-Nepal border in the state was under constant threat to the country's security, due to the mushrooming of Madarsas and mosques, which are the breeding grounds of the terrorists.'' Without taking name of any political party, the BJP MP alleged that the central and state governments had captured power on the caste and communal lines, but done nothing either for the country or its people.
