New Delhi, Apr.18 : Rejecting former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed's proposal for giving recognition to Pakistani currency in the state, the Bharatiya Janata Party on Friday termed him a "traitor", and said that Sayeed is "speaking the language of separatists".
"BJP asks the Congress to give its position and reaction over the statement," said party spokesman Prakash Javadekar.
On the issue of terrorism, the party said that the UPA Government's ministers are playing "vote bank politics and appeasing the minorities.
It said that the arrest of SIMI activists in Madhya Pradesh only showed that banned outfits such as these were desperate to infuse "communal hatred and carry out militant activities".
On the conflagration in Tibet, it said that it was deeply concerned over the crackdown on Tibetans by the Chinese Government.
The UPA Government should have given a strong riposte to the alleged human rights violations in Tibet, rather than kowtowing to the Chinese view on developments in that restive region.
On the elections in Nepal, the party welcomed the abolishing of the monarchy, and hoped that the introduction of democracy in Nepal would allow people of that country to be more expressive.
"We hope that democracy in Nepal will not be a copy of the regime in North Korea and the erstwhile Pol Pot regime of Cambodia," it said.
