BJP asks PM to tell Zardari to stop sponsored terrorism against India

   Apr 4, 5:44 pm

New Delhi, Apr 4 (ANI): The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Wednesday asked Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh to tell visiting Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari that no normal dialogue between the two nations is possible unless Pakistan stops sponsored terrorism against India.

"We would expect the Prime Minister of India to convey in very clear, categorical and terms as firmly as possible to Shri Zardari, the democratically elected President of Pakistan whose visit we welcome that no normal dialogue between India and Pakistan is possible unless Pakistan stops very clearly sponsored terrorism against India," said senior BJP leader Ravi Shankar Prasad.

The BJP leader also commented on Union Home Minister P. Chidambaram's remarks that India has consistently pressed for the arrest and interrogation of 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks mastermind Hafiz Saeed, but Pakistan continues to be in a denial mode.

"I saw an utter sense of helplessness in the utterances of Mr. Chidambaram yesterday that Pakistan doesn't take any action. India is an important neighbour. There has to be diplomatic ways to convey that this is not acceptable," said Prasad.

"What the BJP would like to highlight that not only the intention is unclear, but even the capacity and the ability of Pakistani leadership to deliver on the fight against terror is also becoming suspect," he added.

Zardari, who will visit India in a private capacity, is expected to meet the Indian Prime Minister for lunch on April 8. He will be visiting the Sufi shrine in Rajasthan's Ajmer city during his one-day visit. (ANI)
