Narendra Modi Kolkata/Jalandhar, May 9 (ANI): Senior Bharatiya Janata (BJP) leader LK Advani has pulled the incumbent UPA government up over its polices towards Nepal and Sri Lanka.

Terming the United Progressive Alliance as opportunist, Advani came down heavily on current Indian foreign policy initiatives.

“The problem, which arose due to the wrong foreign policy of this opportunist government in Nepal. The same thing has been repeated in Sri Lanka. Just go and see how Tamils in Tamil Nadu are aggrieved by this,” he said at a public rally in Kolkata on Friday. Meanwhile, Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi told BJP supporters in Jalandhar that Prime Minister Manmohan Singh was not taking enough steps to end atrocities on Sikhs in Pakistan inspite of belonging to that community.

“I want to ask the Prime Minister why he is silent on the issue of Sikh atrocities in Pakistan despite being a Sikh himself? The situation is more grave than it was during the time of Guru Gobind Singh…the Pakistani media is spreading rumours. When I raised this issue in Ambala, then he (Manmohan Singh) had called a press conference and informed reporters that he had written a letter, my Sikh brothers and sisters are dying in Pakistan and our Prime Minister is replying by merely writing letters” he said.
