Mumbai, Jul 15: Trust Indian politicians to play politics with every thing and they won't disappoint you to the slightest bit. As Mumbai seethes in anger over yet another terror attack, senior BJP leader L K Advani has claimed that the time is ripe for the country to go to elections again.

The BJP stalwart said that given the number of failures on the security front, it is time for the central government to face elections again. He said, “This is not a failure of intelligence, but failure of policy."

Advani, quite unsurprisingly was quick to point fingers at Pakistan and said that its spy agency - the ISI, should be branded a terror organistation. He said, “Osama was found to be staying in Pakistan for such a long time. What more proof do they want?"

The senior BJP leader added, “It"s necessary to be categorical about terrorism. There should be a policy of zero tolerance, and the government has failed to follow it."

He also insisted that there needs to be a relook into the government's decision to continue talks with Pakistan until it dismantles its terror infrastructure. Advani also claimed that organisations like the Indian Mujahideen sustained because of the support it got from Pakistan.

Refusing to comment on Rahul Gandhi's statement that it's not possible to stop terror attacks altogether, Advani said, “There has not been a single major attack in the US since the 9/11 attacks. The US is terrorists" biggest enemy, but it has managed to stop attacks. Why can"t we?"
