New Delhi, Sep 24 (UNI) The BJP today asked the Congress to end its 'public drama' enacted by several of its leaders, including Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, and asserted that strong anti-terror laws were needed to surmount anti-national forces in the country.
BJP spokesman Ravishankar Prasad said on the one hand, Congress General Secretary Rahul Gandhi was in favour of an anti-terror law but not POTA, while on the other Dr Singh, who is currently on an official visit to the United States, was on record to state that he was yet to come to a 'conclusion' on the need for an anti-terror law.
''We want to know how many more innocent lives need to be sacrificed for him to arrive at a conclusion?'' Mr Prasad questioned.
He said Administrative Reforms Commission Chairman M Veerappa Moily was arguing for a strong anti-terror law. ''Any prevarication on the part of Congress leaders would only mess up the situation.
They should end this drama and take an early decision to save righteous lives,'' he said adding that the country could not ignore or underestimate the challenge thrown by the terrorists.
