UPA Govt not serious in tackling terrorism
Katni (MP), Apr 25 (UNI) Senior BJP leader and former Deputy Prime Minister L K Advani today accused the UPA Government of not being serious in tackling terrorism menace.
''This government repealed Prevent Of Terrorism Act (POTA) as soon as it came to power,'' Mr Advani told a public meeting here.
