Let police come out with truth on LeT operatives' meeting: BJP

New Delhi, Jan 7: BJP on Tuesday asked Delhi Police to come out with the truth soon on the meeting of suspected LeT operatives with persons in Muzaffarnagar and accused the Centre and UP government of playing politics by giving communal colour to a national security issue.

The opposition party said though the issue is very serious as it concerns national security and communal harmony, there has been a continuous effort of playing politics on the issue.

"We have only received partial information on the issue. Because this is an issue connected with national security and communal harmony, we expect Delhi Police will investigate all aspects of the issue and present the truth before the public. The Uttar Pradesh Police should also reveal what information it has on the issue," BJP Spokesperson Sudhanshu Trivedi said.

Terming it as "very serious", he attacked the Congress-led central government and the SP government in UP for giving "communal colour" to the issue. "There has been a continuous effort to play politics on the issue in one form or the other and an attempt is being made to give a communal colour to it," he said.

Trivedi attacked the Home Ministry for coming out with a list of victims of Muzaffarnagar violence on the basis of religion. "It clearly shows how central and state governments are trying to do religion-based politics on the issue.

When such politics is played, it gives rise to separatist forces to create instability in the country," the BJP spokesman said.

When pointed out that Congress leader Rahul Gandhi had said a few days ago that Pakistan's ISI was trying to approach disgruntled victims of Muzaffarnagar communal riots, the BJP leader was cautious and merely said the Delhi police should complete the investigations as early as possible and come out with the truth.

BJP Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi had earlier hit out at Rahul, saying he should apologise for making such remarks against Muslilm youths.
