Rajnath demands information about ISI activities
Allahabad, Apr 20: BJP president Rajnath Singh today urged the Centre to provide information about the activities of Pakistan's intelligence agency ISI in the country and steps taken to deal with it.
Talking to newspersons here, Mr Singh claimed the ISI was running 200 centres in Bangladesh and India.
''The government should destroy these dens of terrorism by taking international community, United Nations Security Council (UNSC) and opposition parties in confidence.'' The former Uttar Pradesh chief minister maintained such activities posed perpetual danger to India's security, besides disturbing communal harmony.
He urged the government to undertake fencing of the Bangladesh border on a priority basis to check infiltration and said if Pakistan created hurdles, ''it should be dealt with firmly''.
Reiterating the BJP's demand for a law to check conversion, Mr Singh said it was a national issue. ''If conversion is not checked effectively, the Hindus will become a minority one day.'' He underlined that he was against reservation on the basis of religion. ''Reservation should be given only on the basis of economic deprivation and effective steps must be taken to check population explosion.''
