UPAs softness on terror compromising national pride: ModiSeptember 13th, 2008 - 7:16 pm ICT by ANI
Bangalore, Sept 13 (ANI): Accusing the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) Government of being soft on terror and of following minority friendly policies in dealing with the menace, Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi said on Saturday that his government is determined to carry on the battle both against terrorists and against those who prevent us from fighting terror.
Intervening during a discussion on the political resolution that was passed by BJP on the second day of its National Executive here, Modi out lined ten reasons why the malaise of terrorism still persist and why the present government continues to assault symbols of national and cultural pride.
The points he out lined were as follows:
1. This government has been soft on terror. It has consistently sent a signal that its softness on terror is minority friendly. The repeal of Prevention of Terrorism Act (POTA), the non execution of Afzal Guru, the refusal to give assent to the State level anti-organized crime laws are all evidence of the government’’s softness on terror. The softness on terror is being used by the UPA as an instrument for vote bank politics.
2. The government has bowed to its allies in agreeing to the demolition of the Ram Sethu. This was done essentially to hurt the majority sentiment in the country.
3. The decision to withdraw allotment of land to the Sri Amaranathji Shrine Board was an evidence of the government bending backwards to appease the separatist. The UPA government wanted to please the separatist even at the cost of alienating the nationalist.
4. The illegal immigrants from Bangladesh continue to invade India . The Government of India and the UPA don”t perceive these illegal immigrants as a threat to the sovereignty and demography of India . They prefer to use these immigrants as a vote bank.
5. The Supreme Court quashed both the IMDT Act and “The Foreigner’’s (Control) Order Amendments since they were intended to make detection of Foreigners” impossible. The UPA has failed to introduce a proper mechanism for foreigners” detection.
6. Three constituents of the UPA, the Samajwadi Party, the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) and LJP have openly supported SIMI and the Congress continuous to maintain a relationship with them.
7. Religious conversion by missionaries is been protected and increased even though it has an adverse impact on demography and creates social tensions. The proposal to grant reservations to Dalit Christians and Muslims is intended to incentives conversion.
8. The Sachar Commission recommendation intended to introduce Communal budgeting in India and initiate reverse discrimination against the majority are now sought to be implemented.
9. Religion based reservations have no place in our Constitutional system. Yet the UPA has been trying to introduce religion based reservations in states ruled by the UPA.
10. The Indo- US nuclear deal seriously compromises national security in as much as it limits our testing option particularly when China and Pakistan have nuclear potentials.
He concluded by appealing again for central clearance for the Gujarat ‘’s anti organized crime law.
Those concerned about terror obviously support GUJCOC, those concerned about terrorists understandably oppose it, he said. (ANI)
