BJP wants military action against Pakistan

After taking the international community into confidence, India should launch military action against Pakistan, the BJP president said on Saturday.

Pakistan was continuing with its support to terrorist activities from its soil and hence the military action against it had become almost unavoidable, party president Rajnath Singh said.

Addressing a press conference at the Madhya Pradesh BJP office in Bhopal, Singh charged the UPA government at the Centre with failure on all fronts.

The Congress-led ruling coalition was soft not only on Pakistan but also on terrorism, he alleged. The BJP chief said tough action against Pakistan should have been taken after the Mumbai train blasts of July 2006.

Prices of essential commodities had risen continuously in the last four-and-a-half years and if they were coming down now, it was not due to the UPA government, Singh said.

The prices were coming down due to world-wide recession and for this the Manmohan Singh government does not deserve any credit, he said.
