BJP targets govt policy on Maoists

The BJP Saturday passed a resolution on national security,faulting the government’s policy on Naxalism.

The BJP Saturday passed a resolution on national security,faulting the government’s policy on Naxalism. It accused the Congress of hobnobbing with Maoists for poll gains.

“The incongruity in Congress’s policy of dealing with Naxalism on one hand whilst,and on the other,doing deals with them,comes to the surface periodically. Such reports have emerged from Andhra Pradesh and Chhattisgarh,” read the resolution. It also sought an explanation from Congress on the alleged links between some of its leaders and Naxals. “The nation’s resolve to fight Maoists is being compromised by Congress at the altar of short-term political considerations.”

It deplored the attempt by Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde for “cooking up” terms ‘Saffron terror’ and ‘Hindu terror’. “BJP condemns these attempts to communalise terrorism. It is in the national interest to treat terror as terror and must be dealt with full resolve,” the resolution read.
