BJP flays UPA on NE security issue

Agartala, Nov 15 (UNI) BJP president Rajnath Singh today lashed out at the Congress-led UPA government for its 'lackadaisical' attitude on security issue of the Northeast.

''A confused government in Delhi is responsible for Jihadi activities and militancy. The government shies away from taking action against illegal Bangladeshi migrants due to its vote-bank considerations,'' he told a rally at the Mizoram Bru(Reang tribal) refugees dominated Gachirampara School along the Tripura-Mizoram border.

''This is all due to a confused government in Delhi which is undetermined and shying away from action against terror elements.

Vote bank considerations stop them from identifying and deporting illegal Bangladeshi migrants,'' Mr Singh said.

The BJP chief rued that the Centre lacked a 'strong will' to put pressure on the Bangladesh government for preventing militants from the north east from using its territory as a haven.

''As a result, Pak-based ISI is training insurgents from the NE in Bangladesh but the government has not yet taken up the issue with Dhaka,'' he said.

Terrorists, he observed, had no religion and every act of terror was unpardonable and an act against humanity.

The government should keep aside its political considerations and sit together with all stakeholders, including the Opposition, to evolve a national consensus on the issue, he commented.

He asserted that if the BJP-led NDA comes to power it would enhance Northeast Security Council of the Union home ministry.

''The security wing of Northeast affairs in the home ministry is not serious about combating militancy and Jihadi activities in the region,'' Mr Singh regretted.
