He said the current policies to fight terrorism are beyond his comprehension.

"I really don't understand the Centre's. During the UPA rule, they (BJP leaders) used to say all kinds of things. They used to say stop writing love letters (to Pakistan), talk tough with them and what not..." Patel told reporters while responding to a query regarding the Jammu terror attack.

group of heavily armed men struck the sprawling camp of the 36 brigade of the Jammu and Kashmir Light Infantry in Sunjwan before dawn yesterday. Six people, including five Army personnel, were killed in the attack by suspected Jaish-e-Mohammed militants.

"Government needs to take this issue seriously now. Sometime they talk about 'hot policy'; then they turn 'cold' and engage in talks. Our NSA (National Security Adviser) holds talks in some other country (with Pakistan NSA). All such things will lead us nowhere. Government should do something concrete to save lives of civilians and soldiers," the Rajya Sabha MP said.
