BJP leader slams CPM for stand on Madani

via Pioneer News Service| Thiruvananthapuram published on August 3, 2006

BJP leader Murli Manohar Joshi criticised the Kerala CPI(M) alleging that the party had been campaigning for the release of PDP leader Abdul Nasser Madani not out of humanitarian ground, but just as a vote-bank politics.

“They are playing vote-bank politics and are at the jail-door simply to seek Madani’s support in the next elections,” he alleged.

Addressing mediapersons at a function organised by the Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha on national security, Joshi said that the leaders and political parties like this, who existed simply aiming at vote-bank politics, were unable to fight terrorism in the country.

“We cannot fight terrorism by passing a resolution in the Assembly for release of Madani, an accused in the Coimbatore blasts case,” he said.

He also attacked the Union Home Minister, who had earlier stated that it was very expensive for the Government to fight terrorism, “The statement is very disappointing,” he said.

“If we have a will, there is surely a way. India should not remain soft. It should have the firm will and courage to solve both internal and external terrorism,” Joshi said. The country had seen such acts during the time of China War. He said that the UPA Government was trying to mortgage the country. This was evident from its stand on the nuclear deal, he alleged. He said that by the nuclear deal, India would become slave to the US.

Joshi also said that at the G-8 meeting, the authorities had purposefully laid down the repeated argument of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh that Pakistan was sponsoring terrorism in India.

“America is not going call Pakistan a terrorist country. If it does so, the Americans will not be able to know the movements of China,” he said. In the light of the recent terrorist attacks in Mumbai, Akshardham , Jammu and Kashmir, he cautioned Indians on a possible nuclear attack.

“The Pakistan is now going ahead with the idea of a plutonium nuclear reactor and are aiming at the complete destruction of India culturally, economically and technologically,” he said.
