Response awaited on the arrest of JeM Chief: BJP, Congress

New Delhi, Jan 14 (ANI): Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Siddharthnath Singh on Thursday said that the government is keeping a close eye and would take appropriate action on the arrest of Jaish-e- Mohammad (JeM) chief Maulana Masood Azhar. He added they should wait for further response from the government on the same. Congress leader Sandeep Dikshit on the other hand said that the arrest of the JeM chief is a welcome step, however, it is doubtful whether he is arrested in a house only or proper arrest has been made. He said only time would tell if any kind of stringent action would be taken against him or not. Dikshit expressed his gladness saying that the Modi government is following the policy of former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.
