Lots more could have been discussed with China: Rajnath
Dehra Dun, Nov 23 (UNI) Terming Chinese Ambassador claiming Arunachal Pradesh was ''Chinese Territory'' Sun Yuxi's statement as an insult to the country, BJP President Rajnath Singh today said that lots more could have been discussed with China during president HU Jintao's visit.
Talking to the media at Jollygrant Airport on his way to Haldwani, Mr Singh reprimanded UPA government for not reacting on the emolition of ISCKON Temple at Kazakhstan few days back. ''Indian government should have pressed the Kazakhstan government to reconstruct the temple,'' he asserted, adding that once British Prime Minister Tony Blair had reacted on the incident, the no reaction from the UPA government revealed its insensitivity.
Lambasting UPA government for not being 'serious' about internal security issues, he said it had quashed POTA without constituting any alternative, which has lifted the morale of terrorists and brought down that of Indian security forces.
He said the UPA government had fallen flat on people's expectations with prices of basic amenities going up and internal security on the stake. ''Congress despite being in the power for so long a duration has failed to make India a developed country,'' Mr Singh said.
