Emergency unveils Musharraf's real face: BJP
Mirzapur, Nov 4: Hours after Pakistan's President General Pervez Musharraf imposed emergency in the country, the Bharatiya Janata Party today said the ''draconial step'' has unveiled the real face of the military ruler before the public and India should make efforts to reinstate democracy in Islamabad.
''This is one of General Musharraf's greatest errors of judgement and an indication that nothing has been learnt from the past mistakes...by imposing emergency, he has unveiled his real face before the people,'' BJP national president Rajnath Singh told newspersons before paying obeisance at the holy Maa Vindhyavasini Shrine here.
''The Congress led-United Progressive Alliance (UPA) regime at the Centre needs to put constant efforts for reinstating democracy in Pakistan and make diplomatic efforts to build mounting pressure on the military ruler by the world community,'' Mr Singh underlined.
He added India ''does not have good relations with the neighbouring countries. The Centre ought to shun its 'lackadaisical' attitude and make efforts in this regard.''
