Root out 'terrorist infrastructure' before talks with Pakistan: BJP

Subscribe to Oneindia News

Hyderabad, Aug 3 (UNI) Advocating a tough stance towards terror, senior BJP leader M Venkaiah Naidu today demanded that the Centre ''destroy the infrastructure established by terrorists in the country'' before holding talks with Pakistan.

Apparently referring to the talks held between Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and his Pakistan counterpart Yousaf Raza Gillani at the SAARC Summit in Colombo, the BJP leader, speaking at a press conference here, said the Centre should hold talks with Pakistan only after all the hideouts of the terrorists were completely eliminated from the country.

Stating that it was high-time to wage war on terrorism, he said, ''We must prevail upon International agencies to check the growing terrorist activities. Otherwise, Taliban forces would enter India too,'' he added.

Alleging that the Congress-led UPA Government was ''not sincere'' in curbing terrorist activities in the country, he claimed that more than 100 major terror incidents had taken place in the country since 2004.

The continuous curfew clamped in Jammu and Kashmir over the Amarnath land issue showed that the country's internal security was also not under control, Mr Naidu added.
