Bharatiya Janata Party Rajkot (Gujarat), Apr 26 (ANI): Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) General Secretary Arun Jaitley on Sunday said that the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance (UPA) Government has failed to improve the national security even after the Mumbai terror attacks last year.

“The negligence of national security by the UPA Government will have huge consequences. The Australian tennis team has refused to play the Davis Cup tie in Chennai. The Indian Premier League has also shifted this year’s edition to South Africa,” Jaitley said at a press conference here.

He further said Congress’ stubbornness would bracket the security of India with Pakistan.

“After Australian team’s refusal to play in India, foreign teams will continuously refuse to play here. The 2010 Commonwealth Games are going to be held here next year. What picture of India would it represent with it? Tourists and investors would be reluctant to visit our country. With their stubbornness they are bracketing the security of India with Pakistan,” Jaitley added.

The BJP leader also criticized Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh for failing to provide a Finance Minister.

“There is no credibility in his (Manmohan Singh) existence. From the last 150 days, Manmohan Singh has failed to provide a Finance Minister to this country. There is no Finance Minister in this country since December 1,” Jaitley added. (ANI)
