BJP leader, Nirmala Sitharaman stated, "Startling revelations have come out in the public domain on the connections between ISI, Hurriyat and the Naxals. It had been suspected for a long time."
"BJP is voicing its concern over this frightening reality. This dangerous and completely threatening link demands greater intelligence awareness in tackling this menace," demanded Sitharaman.
Accusing the government, Sitharaman also added, "The government should stop debating among themselves whether there should be development first and then action or whether action should be taken and then development should take place (in Naxal-hit areas)."
