Mangalore, Apr 18: Leader of the Opposition in the Lok Sabha L K Advani alleged that the wrong policies pursued by the Congress-led UPA government at the Centre were responsible for spread of Naxalite activities across the country.
Talking to newspersons here, Mr Advani, who has undertaken 'Bharat Suraksha Yatra', accused the UPA government of having failed to implement an order issued by the previous BJP-led NDA government in 1998, facilitating joint command operations against Naxalite activities.
To a question, he said the Yatra had evoked a good response.
On recent blast at the historic Jama Masjid in New Delhi, Mr Advani said unless the government initiated steps to check terrorism, such incidents would recur.
He later left for Kasargod in Kerala.
