Rohtak, May 5 (ANI): Bharatiya Janata Party's prime ministerial candidate Lal Krishna Advani on Tuesday attacked the Congress led United Progressive Alliance government for its failure to curb terror within the country and also on the issue of Taliban's atrocities on Sikhs in Pakistan.
Addressing an election rally in Rohtak city of Haryana, Advani mentioned about UPA government's failures in last five years' of its rule.
"In these five years, thousands of farmers committed suicide. Is it wrong that more and more terror attacks have taken place in these five years? You never know what is going to happen ahead. Is it wrong that due to the wrong policies of your government, the dominance of Taliban has increased in Pakistan? Atrocities of Talibans have increased. We have heard of Jazia being imposed during the rule of Mughals but today it is being imposed on the Sikhs," said Advani.
"The hold on Nepal by the Maoists and a red corridor from Pashupati (in Kathmandu) to Tirupati ( in Andhra Pradesh) all these reflect the failure of the UPA government," he added.
A total of 85 parliamentary constituencies across states of Bihar, West Bengal, Haryana, Jammu and Kashmir, Punjab, Uttar Pradesh and Delhi will go to polls in the fourth-phase on Thursday (May 7). (ANI)
