BJP slams NSA on remarks

New Delhi, Feb 15: The Bhartiya Janata Party today alleged that the National Security Advisor was creating confusion in the country over the security situation. The BJP statement attacked both the Government and the NSA M. K. Narayanan for his remarks that terror groups have manipulated stock exchanges.

“We are surprised why the government takes no action on the NSA’s advice. We believe he has reduced his role to that of a meteorologist who can only predict weather but can do nothing to stop unwelcome conditions,” BJP vice-president Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said.

Narayanan, while speaking at a security conference in Munich, had said that some fictitious companies in stock markets of Mumbai and Chennai have been traced to terror groups.

“The NSA earlier spoke about infiltration of terrorists in the armed forces, then came his comments on the Mumbai bombings and then on threat to key installations, but we have seen nothing concrete from the government’s side to act on these warnings. It shows that the key post he holds has lost its relevance under the UPA,” Naqvi said.

“The NSA should be convincingly advising the government on security and not just speaking about threats for public consumption to create confusion over security,” the BJP leader added.
