BJP concludes its three-day Executive
Dehradun, Sep 9 (UNI) The three-day National Executive of the Bharatiya Janata Party concluded today rapping the government on the dismal internal security scenario and accusing the UPA government of disrespecting the national song Vande Matram.
The Executive adopted three resolutions on farmers suicides, price rise and internal security situation and took the government to task for its allround failure in not just in managing the economy but also providing a sense of security for the citizens. Demanding a major policy shift in the area of security management, the party asked the government to delink internal security from its "vote bank politics." Senior BJP leader and former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee, in his concluding remarks, lauded the Uttaranchal BJP unit for organising successful 'Parivartan Rally' and asked the partymen to make a comparative analysis in other states instead of concentrating on local issues.
On yesterday's Malegoan blasts, the party condemned the loss of innocent lives and noted when the facts were clear on the perpetrators of crime, the Left was seeking to play diversionary statements by seeking a ban of Bajrang Dal. ''The pedestrian statement of Home Minister Shivraj Patil on the issue was also an indicator that no firm governmental action was forthcoming,'' the party regretted.
The BJP wanted the authorities to explore the role of illegal Bangladeshi population in the country in offering men and material support to subversive activities, masquerading as locals.
Slamming the absence of Congress President Sonia Gandhi and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh at the function organised to observe centenary celebration of Vande Matram at the Congress headquarters, the BJP qestioned their commitment to the national song, and went to the extent of stating that the present Congress had no relation to the Indian National Congress, which led the freedom struggle assimilating all nationalist forces.
